Two days before a family wedding, Marthica's father fell and his face was badly bruised from the injury. Using her knowledge of essential oils and handmade ointments, Marthica carefully prepared a fragrant balm to heal and soothe his skin. A balm is for the personal product purist at heart because it is a liquid carrier oil for essential oils thickened with a wax.
Our handcrafted muscle and joint balm was created with specific purpose to ease deep muscle tension, reduce soreness, and lessen the appearance of bruising. We selected Arnica herbal oil as a carrier which is typically used to alleviate sprains, bruises, arthritis, muscle aches and pain with anti-inflammatory therapeutic properties of unrefined Hemp oil. Beeswax acts as a skin barrier and thickening agent to allow for slower topical absorption and portability. Pure essential oils, the most important ingredient, are absorbed by the skin through the carrier oil to promote additional healing.
That day, Marthica had no idea she was creating our most popular signature blend, also available in our muscle & joint lotion and bath bomb, that includes 14 pure essential oils with analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. Essential oils including Rosemary, Helichrysum, Marjoram, Peppermint, Lemongrass, and Eucalyptus give this balm a pleasant, non-offensive minty herbaceous scent unlike most medicinal muscle liniments available on the market.
