Therapeutic Balms Are Finally Here!
We are so excited to announce the arrival of our Therapeutic Balms. I have been messing around with these for years and finally a good friend of mine said you really should package these. They are amazing! My response was “That’s a great idea! Let me get them worked into my schedule.” (by the way that was last year or maybe the year before sometime).
Then this last year my Mom had her knee replaced and my sister had to have back surgery due to a bulging disk. Both said wow you really need to be selling that Arnica Balm. So as a result of them having such great success (or nagging me how every you look at it. LOL) here I am opening the line up for all to enjoy and benefit from. The line will include our Arnica, Sinus, Sleepytime and Thieves Defense balms.
Furthermore, since each one has soooooo many wonderful properties to talk about we will be doing a four part series highlighting each one and how it will benefit you and your loved ones. It was either that or you would be reading a very looooooooooooooooooong post. Rather than doing that we decided to keep it simple. Hence this week we will be discussing our Arnica Therapeutic Balm as our the first of our new line so here we go!
Let’s Break It Down Shall We
What is Arnica?
Arnica Montana is a high alpine, perennial flower that is part of the sunflower family and grows at 3000 feet in altitude and higher. The higher in altitude the more aromatic the flowers become. I find it here in the Rocky Mountains where it likes to co-mingle in the sunny spots between the dark timber shadows with Yarrow and Asters. While ours come from a cultivated field it is awesome to see it’s full beauty in the wild. Because it has many benefits for homeopathic healing and is one of the mostly widely used botanical in homeopathic care.
What is it commonly used for?
Arnica is well known for for it’s help with sore muscles, pain, swelling, and bruising.
It is a renowned bruise remedy by sending more white blood cells to the effected area cleaning up the spilled blood where it can be reabsorbed by the body at a faster rate. Reducing the swelling and allow body functions to return to normal.
In addition, it is nature’s anti-inflammatory and helps reduce swelling from minor injuries. Use it right away or as soon as possible after sprains, strains or contusions. (Please note: Do NOT apply Arnica to any open wound or torn skin areas as it can be toxic.) The application of Arnica to the sight will help the body with the pain and swelling and aids in lessening healing time by stimulating the body at the area effected. People whosuffer from arthritis many studies have shown that Arnica has been effective against the pain and stiffness.1 2
Another great benefit of Arnica is the pain relief benefit that doesn’t just mask the pain but goes straight to the source, primarily inflammation, by reducing swelling and driving white blood cells to the injury promoting faster healing especially after trauma. 3 As I mentioned before, both my Mom and my sister had pain on various parts of their bodies. Consequently they both found relief from the joint pain of the knee and pain in her lower back from muscle spasms and swelling from this balm.
What is in our Arnica Therapeutic Balm?
Our Arnica Therapeutic Balm is made with Arnica Extract that we make ourselves form the dried flowers of the botanical Arnica Montana and organic Safflower Oil, plus beeswax. In addition, we use our very own therapeutic grade essential oil blend Tired Muscles to add a wonderful scent and its added beneficial properties. We find it is a must for your first aid and home remedy kits.
The Tired Muscles Synergy Blend is comprised of therapeutic grade Eucalyptus, Orange, Rosemary, and Peppermint essential oils. Also, not only does this blend add a wonderful smell to this amazing balm but each one of these essential oils also lend their properties as well. Rosemary is for pain and swelling with it targeting joints. Peppermint is an eviscerate that helps bring oxygenated blood to the area cleaning out the toxins, is also an anti-inflammatory, with a cooling effect. Eucalyptus is antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory and a stimulant. Orange is used for it’s antibacterial properties.
Recommend use is a regiment of applying the balm to the effected area and lightly massaging for 30-60 seconds. Use it up to three times for 1-7 days until symptoms subside. If pain, swelling and discomfort continues consult additional medical help.
Contained in our convenient packaging, in a resealable tube…therefore it makes it perfect to add to all your first aid bags in your car, camper, backpack or your keep in your medicine cabinet at home.
