About the Main Ingredients
Tei Fu Oil
The star of this recipe is Tei Fu Oil – it’s a blend of safflower oil, wintergreen oil, menthol, camphor, clove, eucalyptus and lavender essential oils.
Tamanu is a remarkable oil, for helping scars, sores, tough-to-treat skin conditions, and inflammation.
Arnica (Arnica montana) is an anti-inflammatory herb that’s excellent for bruising, sore muscles, arthritis, and pulled muscles. (Not for use on open wounds.)
Comfrey (Symphytum officinale) helps bruises, pulled muscles, broken bones, and tiny nicks heal faster. It contains allantoin which stimulates skin growth and soothes and protects skin. (Not for use on deep, open, or puncture wounds.)
Has mild anti-inflammatory and antipruritic (anti-itching) properties. Research also suggests that it may help prevent sun damage.
Hemp Seed Oil
Hemp seed oil’s anti-inflammatory properties help to reduce pain. You can apply hemp seed oil directly to the painful area for natural pain relief. Gamma-linoleic acid (GLA) present in hemp seed oil has been shown to reduce inflammation. A review of studies suggests that natural herbs rich in GLA are effective in relieving symptoms of inflammatory conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and multiple sclerosis (MS).
Apply Balm generously on damp free (dry surface) on the affected area for few minutes and gently massage 2-3 times a day as needed. Discontinue if irritation occurs.
