    Comfrey Ointment

    SKU: ON2. Category: .

    Product Description

    This mixture of herbs and roots provides great restorative action to those tissues damaged through accident, injury, or degeneration. Comfrey, the primary ingredient, contains an abundance of Allantoin – a cell proliferant that promotes rapid healing of wounds, tissue and broken bones and ligaments. Yarrow is an excellent remedy for all wounds and trauma to the skin and tissues, being astringent, anti microbial, and anti-inflammatory. Likewise, St. John’s Wort soothes and calms irritated tissues and skin, promotes the speedy healing of abraded surfaces, and relaxes tight muscles and ligaments. Goldenseal Root provides strong antibiotic activity to any infected / inflamed surface or tissues, while the Chickweed reduces inflammation. Together, these herbs and roots work in a synergistic manner, helping to rebuild the successive layers of tissue (in cases of deep trauma), eliminate infections, reduce swelling and irritation, and bring the area back to full and proper function and appearance. Over the years, we have recommended this formula for just about anything to do with the skin. It will greatly assist in preventing the peeling of skin in cases of sunburn, work wonderfully on diaper rashes, eliminate mild cases of eczema, reduce the itch and swelling of mosquito bites, and serve to keep moist, hands that are dry and chapped. It can also be used as a lubricant and even as a moisturizer after the bath/shower. We have heard of nurses who used it for bedsores in chronic care patients, and from those desiring rapid healing from surgical incisions While we acknowledge the controversy over the use of Comfrey, the early research done on laboratory rats was seriously flawed. We have no hesitation in recommending its use for external application.

    Ingredients: Comfrey Leaves, Yellow Dock Root, Chickweed, Yarrow, St. John's Wort, Goldenseal, Olive Oil, Beeswax
    Suggested Dosage: Apply as needed to affected area(s), as often as required. The best time to apply is after a bath or shower, when the pores of the skin allow the herbs to soak into the skin.
    Contra-Indications: None.

    St. John’s Wort

    SKU: EN30. Category: .

    Product Description

    This is a most wonderful soothing and relaxing liniment for pulled muscles, sore backs, bruised calves, sciatica, and is of moderate – to significant assistance in shingles. This embrocation is made from either wild-crafted or (certified) organic St John’s Wort – notably the top 3-4 inches that have the most flowers that contain the hyperforin and hypericin: the two essential compounds that provide the anti-spasmodic, relaxing and calming effect. Use liberally for those occasions that require its use; however, be prepared to cover the affected area with muslin or loose cotton cloth, covered in turn by plastic sheeting. The base – as noted is an oil; thus this will stain affected clothing, bed-sheets, etc. We suggest wearing old / minimal value clothing where & when needed.

    NOTE: store out of light in a cupboard or cool place.

    Ingredients: St John’s Wort, Olive Oil.
    Suggested Dosage: Apply as needed to affected area(s).
