I am thrilled to offer a salve version of the beloved Muscle Mystic!
I can’t express how paramount this combination of herbs has been to my carpal tunnel & tendonitis healing journey over the last few years. It’s so versatile as a salve & lip balm, with the ability to lather on thick as a spot treatment in concentrated areas. It also gives you the option of using it as a lip balm! It's on the harder side of a salve so that it stays in place longer, and doesn't thin out during warmer days. It's wonderful as a spot treatment for all reasons listed below.
❣️ 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 helps bruises, sore muscles, tension/body aches, sprains & 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, bark & resinous buds. They're known as a deeply protective tree, whom also grows in Southern & Central parts of Europe. In European Folklore, they're considered a bridge between the worlds, of light and dark, life and death. They're a sacred tree of the Underworld, to Persephone & Hecate, and is a deeply powerful physical & spiritual pain healer. Her sweet vanilla scented buds are an aphrodisiac; conjuring feelings of sensuality, deep passion & comfort.
❣️ Wild Tallow & Shea Butter ~ Us humans are red meat animals, and Tallow is the most nourishing thing we can put on our skin. It replicates our own skin, allowing these herbs & oils to penetrate deep beyond the surface. The tallow & shea butter bring moisture to the skin, also making this salve have more of a creamy consistency so you can layer it on thick. The combination of oils, tallow, shea butter & beeswax make this salve sit on the skins surface longer than oil, extending the healing benefits of the herbs.
I spent many days of winter & summer harvesting & infusing these herbs. I hope you get to experience the magic of these 2 mystical allies slow infused into 3 deeply nourishing oils.
