Relief is a topical pain reliever designed to quell the onset of headaches, sinus tension, and migraines. Just dab a little Relief on your temples, pulse points, and behind your ears and massage in well. Or simply rub some in your hands and inhale fully for three deep breaths.
THE MULTI-TASKER FOR BOO-BOO'S
Life can get chaotic. The tension of a headache, the pain of cracked skin or the swelling from an injury can often be the signal we need to slow down and tune in. Pain is often a signal to listen a deeper wisdom. While the best medicine can often be rest, water, and a home-cooked meal, it’s helpful to have a few herbal salves that can support the healing process. Our salves are infused with organic herbs that synergistically work together to keep inflammation down and moisture levels up. In a nutshell, regular application can help repair skin damage, reduce scar formation, restore suppleness, and speed up recovery.
Our bodies are permeable. Studies have shown that skin, our largest organ, can absorb up to 60% of what it comes into contact with. What goes on goes in. This is why personal care products should be as fresh and wholesome as the food we eat. Yet many product lines require preservatives that are linked to breast cancer (parabens), or add synthetic additives that can cause skin discoloration (fragrance), contribute to immune system toxicity (formaldehyde), disrupt hormones (phthalates), and irritate eyes and scalp (sodium laurel sulfate). That’s scary. Our botanical skincare is handcrafted in small batches using the highest quality organic and ethically foraged plants we can find.
RELIEF HERBAL INFUSION INCLUDES
Coconut Oil: A powerful moisturizer that is beneficial in restoring dry or flaking skin, coconut oil also helps delay the onset of wrinkles because it contains the antioxidant Vitamin E, known to protect skin cells from damage over time. This also helps soothe eczema, sunburn, and psoriasis, and its natural antiviral and antifungal benefits even help to treat bug bites.*
Cocoa Butter: A valuable oil due to high concentrations of antioxidant compounds, including oleic acid, palmitic acid, and stearic acid, cocoa butter reduces the occurrence of oxidative stress and can help reduce the signs of aging, including wrinkles and age marks. Research has also shown cocoa butter can reduce the appearance of scars on the skin and help to boost overall skin health.*
Green Tea: In addition to being full of antioxidants, green tea also has a good amount of caffeine. This stimulates the concentration of neurotransmitters like dopamine and norepinephrine, which help alleviate headaches, migraines, and tension aches.*
Eucalyptus: An excellent antiseptic and pain reliever, eucalyptus can also help with joint pain or muscular aches when applied topically. With its refreshing and cooling effect, inhaling eucalyptus can also helps appease coughs, asthma, sore throat and runny nose, and can alleviate mental exhaustion. It also helps stimulate mental activity by increasing blood flow to the brain.*
Marjoram: The beneficial list of marjoram as a tea, essential oil, or salve is vast. Known as an analgesic (pain reliever), antispasmodic (cramp reducer), anti-viral aid, marjoram helps calm the nervous system, inducing relaxation. Studies have been shown that marjoram can help support healthy activity in the brain.*
Our balms are crafted by hand in very small batches (about 36 at a time) with love and care. We combine unrefined butters and cold-pressed botanicals that have been solar infused with therapeutic herbs for 21 days. Mass-produced products often add water to their balms, which create an unstable formula. These require emulsifiers, preservatives, and other synthetic additives to keep mold at bay and extend shelf live. We believe in a more traditional, time-honored process using high quality, cold-pressed oils that are naturally anti-microbial and antibacterial with properties that nourish skin from within.
