Cold Weather Pain Relief Blend

 

Seeking natural analgesics? Look to the trees. I'm especially impressed with Conifers (cone bearing trees) of late, for their humble yet mighty anti-inflammatory {pain relieving} properties. I see cone bearing trees through different eyes, not only as beautiful and a safe haven to birds and other animals but, as healers. Combine a fir or spruce essential oil with a warming essential oil like Black Pepper or Clove (or both) and you have a simple, natural analgesic that's especially nice for cold weather aches and pains. Because St. John's Wort is especially beneficial for trauma related pain, I would suggest a layer of  St. John's Wort therapeutic essential oil salve as well.

    Stay well, live simply and look to nature first. Follow this link to learn why CW Therapeutic Salve Singles are smart, healthy and safer for topical use.

    Hi Patti! I hope your holiday was happy and bright, we’re still recuperating up north :) Douglas Fir is coming, so is Black Spruce – both are amazing! I’ll be sure and let you know when it’s stocked, we’re just waiting on labels.

    I didn’t see the Douglas Fir in the shop when I ordered yesterday. I just looked again and I still don’t see it. Am I missing it somewhere? Is it available? I love all things fir!

    I love fir for my achy knees and ankles. I usually add some lemongrass, frankincense, and birch and use sweet almond oil and rub it in at bed tie. My husband is always shocked at how quickly it relieves the pain. I have used the fir alone with almond oil and it is just really lovely for those nights when my body is sore and tired… the smell makes me purely happy so that has to be an added benefit

    "I have plantar fasciitis and some days it was all I could do to get up in the mornings and ambulate to the bathroom. With Cannabis Sativa Salve I can ambulate with some mornings no discomfort to very little discomfort in my feet. When I state that the salve has given me back my life I'm not trying to be dramatic I truly mean it...I do not dread getting up in the morning and walking." -Mona
