About the ingredients:
One of the main constituents in cayenne is capsaicin. When this is applied topically, it helps to reduce and relieve pain causing an almost instant numbing effect. The reason capsaicin works so well for pain relief is because it blocks a neurotransmitter called Substance P. This neurotransmitter is responsible for transmitting pain signals from the nerves to the central nervous system.
Balm of Gilead Cottonwood Buds:
Balm of Gilead acts as an anti-inflammatory. As an example - Balm of Gilead acts in a similar way to aloe when applied to sunburn, as it can quickly suck out the heat and itchiness due to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds found within this powerful oil. Similarly, when Balm of Gilead is applied to areas affected by arthritis, it can reduce inflammation, effectively eliminating pain as well. The sticky resin in these buds contain salicin which your body converts to aspirin.
Calendula is an anti-inflammatory and works well on sprained muscles or bruises helping to lessen the swelling from injury. It is also a great moisturizer and helps to soothe dry, irritated skin.
Use daily for pain relief. Some have experienced immediate relief but it may take up to two weeks of regular use to see results. Store in a cool, dry place. Avoid keeping in direct sunlight. If melting occurs, place in the refrigerator to re-harden.
Do not use if you have an aspirin allergy or sensitivity. Do not use on open wounds or broken skin. If you are pregnant, nursing or on any medications, check with a qualified healthcare professional before using herbal products. Avoid getting in eyes, nose, mouth or other sensitive areas. Do not use if you are allergic to chili peppers or have ever had a reaction to topical capsaicin. Not for use on children. Wash hands thoroughly after applying or apply with gloves. Use care when using near light colored furniture or clothing.
