Comfrey Root & Leaves - earned the nickname of “Knitbone” back in the day; once used by the gladiators, druids and in medieval times for all sorts of ailments. It was a key ingredients to providing relief for; Osteoarthritis, Arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Joint pain, Muscle pain, Back pain, Bruises, Inflammation, and Eczema and Varicose veins. It also has been know to support sports injury, bone fractures, sprains and pulled muscles. It has been listed in the Cochrane review.
Calendula & Arnica – are both nurturing and soothing on the skin.
Beeswax, Shea & Cocoa butter - All add certain richness to the balm. These ingredients moisturise and hydrate the skin nicely, which is great for dry to chapped hands, skin and heels and soothing to sunburnt skin.
Essential Oils – that I’ve chosen are all beneficial for the skin in that they protect, embalm, disinfect, sooth and moisturise.
