Pushing ourselves beyond a certain point can result in sprains and strains.
Time away from our work schedules is precious so of course we try to make the most of every minute.
We cram as much into our free time as possible and risk paying the price with a stiff back, shoulders, knees or whatever else put in overtime.
Weekend Warrior Relief is a balm for sore muscles which utilizes two herbal infused oils, comfrey and ginger root.
Called the living medicine chest, both the leaves and roots of the comfrey plant are important. High in silicic acid comfrey can reduce swelling, bruising and strengthen ligaments and tendons. Also known for its allantoin content, a crystalline oxidation product of uric acid, comfrey stimulates and accelerates tissue repair.
Ginger root is used for its aid in increasing circulation which enhances blood flow to the damaged tissue or achy muscles and joints.
The addition of shea butter adds to the therapeutic value since this rich soothing butter helps to heal bruising.
The cool, refreshing aroma of wintergreen and peppermint essential oils greet you upon application of this balm. They both contain analgesic properties which help soothe tired, sore muscles and joints.
Helichrysum essential oil is from the garden flower you probably know as immortelle. This oil has a reputation for improving circulation and the regeneration of nerves and tissue repair.
Apply as needed to stiff and sore areas.
Weekend Warrior Relief balm comes in a 2 oz. jar
Wintergreen essential oil contains menthyl salicylate. If you are allergic to aspirin, pregnant or breastfeeding, on anti-coagulants or have epilepsy, please consult with your doctor before using a product containing menthyl salicylate.
If pregnant, we can alter the essential oils by taking out the Wintergreen, cutting back on the Peppermint and adding Lavender and Chamomile. The Helichrysum will remain. Wait to use until you are beyond the first trimester.
A child friendly version of this balm for children under the age of 8 is the omission of the Wintergreen and Peppermint essential oils and the addition of Lavender and Chamomile essential oils. Please convo me if you plan to use this balm on young children and I'll make the switch.
"At an ice hockey game, my mom got hit on her hand with a puck. By the time we got home her hand was very sore. Put this balm on before bed and by morning it felt much better. No major bruising. Impressive."
