• FOREST PROTECTORS ~ Wildcrafted Hand Sanitizer & Pain-Relief Liniment Body Mist •
*This offering is for one 2oz amber misting spray bottle.
The Brew: She came to me by Mother Winter herself. After our many destructive Winter wind storms, I wondered the forest and gathered all the tree boughs from broken branches & downed trees that we lost during our storms.
*As a Hand Sanitizer, the Organic, non-gmo alcohol makes this offering 70% alcohol thanks to the anti-viral St. John's Wort tincture and witch hazel, making it compliant with CDC regulations.
*As a Liniment, Liniments are traditionally made with rubbing alcohol as a topical pain reliever. Mine is not made with rubbing alcohol, but with much healthier and medicinal Organic Witch Hazel, Organic, non-gmo alcohol, Vegetable Glycerin and herbs known to have pain relieving properties.
The Witch Hazel, Glycerin & whole herbs used make this Hand Sanitizer/Liniment spray much more nourishing on the skin and much less drying than standard ones. The trees utilized also have natural anti-viral, anti-microbial, anti-bacterial & pain relieving properties. They are sacred to this region & are deeply respected as the Protectors of the Forest by the local Indigenous tribes. May this mist protect you!
Wise Folk Way: Shake & spray on hands same way you'd use any other hand sanitizer, or use as a topical pain relieving mist! Spray to help ease nerve pain, sore muscles and stiff joints.
