Most balms for pain smell like the inside of a rugby changing room ... while this is a plus for some, lots of us like a less ' pongy' approach. The ginger pure essential oil in this balm is warming and is a natural pain reliever, as well as being an amazing scent which is energising and known for giving a feeling of passion for life.
This balm is loaded with botanicals and natural ingredients for dealing with muscle soreness and aches, bruising, joint pain and swelling, and inflammation without using ingredients like cayenne pepper, which can irritate the skin. Arnica has been used for centuries to reduce pain and to stop bruises from appearing after knocks. Menthol targets pain by creating a cooling sensation, then penetrating the skin to numb pain temporarily. It has been shown in studies to effectively ease neuropathic pain in cancer patients. Devils claw is a highly regarded plant used in Africa for improving arthritis pain. Meadowsweet is the plant which was chemically altered in 1900 to produce aspirin. Golden rod is a plant used for soothing spasming or strained muscles and MSM is a naturally occurring sulphur which has benefitted sufferers of arthritis. Castor oil is deeply penetrating and carries the goodness of the botanicals deep into the affected tissue. Mango butter is a beautiful butter which rejuvenates damaged skin and all of the pure essential ois used in this balm have anti-inflammatory and/or analgesic qualities.
Use for many different types of pain including sports injuries, arthritis, bruising, muscle aches and sore spots after a day in the garden! Massage (don't just rub in as the massage helps the area) into the affected area 2-3 times a day as needed.
Always patch test on a small area of skin first.
