I am so happy to restock my absolute favorite seasonal offering ~ this incredibly magical, wildly aromatic, pain relieving oil.
I spent many days of winter gathering Cottonwood & summer harvesting St. John’s Wort, infusing these herbs in oils over months to create this formula ~ making it a wonderful ally for transitioning into spring, as it combines the magic of hot & cold days.
Body oiling is a sacred, ancient ritual ~ one that I deeply rely on for mental, spiritual, emotional & physical wellness. As someone that asks a whole lot of my body & mind on a daily basis, I tend to live with various physical ailments & my nervous system needs deep nourishment.
I can’t express how paramount this oil is to my carpal tunnel & tendonitis healing journey. The connective ritual of body oiling is such a deep sense of coming home, allowing us to be present within our body & spirit. I enjoy liberally lathering this oil on after a nourishing salt soak to allow my whole being to sink into a deep sleep after long tiring days. It’s a wonderful preventative as it keeps me aware of the changes in my body.
❣️ St. John's Wort is a sacred herb with golden blooms thought to carry inside her buds the blood of the sun: her Hypericum ~ an incredibly nourishing fragrant oil. One of the best anti-viral, anti-inflammatory herbs known, helping rebuild connective tissue, reducing nerve damage, tension, pain, sore muscles, cuts, burns & various skin ails. There are studies of SJW helping with various viral conditions, making this balm great for helping cold sores. SJW is a deeply cherished herb to Ancient European folklore. Honored during Midsummer, she blooms with the returning Sun & is utilized as a protection plant, helping clear negative psychic energy. Internally she’s used as a natural antidepressant. Please note there are studies that St. John's wort should not be taken internally with anti-depressants. This is an EXTERNAL offering, but just wanted to note this.
❣️ Black Cottonwood buds bleed sticky red aromatic resin: Salicylic Acid, rich in salicin & poplin which is extremely pain-reliving, anti-inflammatory & anti-microbial. (The compounds ph*rma pain relievers are made from) This resin is known to help soothe sore muscles, bruises, tension/body aches, sprains & so much more. Poplar (Populus) translates to “people’s tree” - they are prolific here in the PNW & comes with a lot of Indigenous lore. They're considered the Tree of Life by tribes who held community ceremony of prayer, dance & offerings in a circle around young Black Cottonwoods ~ making medicine with their leaves, twigs, bark & resinous buds. They're known as a deeply protective tree, whom also grow in Southern & Central parts of Europe. The resin of Cottonwood is used as lung medicine, sucking on the resin is known to help relieve sore throat and various lung ails. In European Folklore, they're considered to be a bridge between the worlds, of light and dark, life and death. They're a sacred tree of the Underworld, to Persephone & Hecate, and a deeply powerful physical & spiritual pain healer. The sweet vanilla scent of her buds are also considered an aphrodisiac; conjuring feelings of sensuality, deep passion & comfort.

This oil works great as a massage oil. I have some joints on my body that pain me more than they should and use Muscle Mystic to help. I do notice a definite reduction in pain over a longer time when using it when compared to using a cream or other type of massage oil. It has been especially effective for chronic tendonitis. I've also come to look forward to my massage time because it really gives me the time to ground myself, self reflect and really pay attention to what my body is telling me. The scent is lovely too, slightly vanilla and woody.
I was so excited to try this new oil my arthritis was acting up in my wrist and fingers from a long day at work. I applied half a dropper on and within 15 minutes my pain subsided almost completely I am so so thankful for this product! And will definitely be back for more soon!
