the stinging nettle seed was carefully wild foraged and processed immediately
the comfrey leaf was also wild foraged before flowering
the rosemary was lovingly homegrown and steeped fresh
the herbs were picked at peak season for optimal potency
then were steeped for 5 months in good olive oil
the resulting medicinal oil was filtered then thickened with bees wax.
it smells beautiful.
i was thrilled to find that the stinging nettle seeds all but dissolved into the medium
it's tricky to capture it's full potential.
this is an old roman formula for to increase circulation to aching joints
+ take down inflammation.
i added a bit of comfrey to the original formula to aid in cartilage repair.
cartilage has no direct blood flow to help it heal itself
comfrey leaf is a specific for healing cartilage
external use of comfrey *leaf* proves a blessing.
safety side note: i do not recommend taking any part of comfrey internally,
nor do i think that comfrey root is safe to use as an amateur, even externally.
if you struggle with damaged cartilage
please consider incorporating bone broth into your daily routine
i like to roast a whole organic chicken, remove the meat and make bone broth from whats left.
it's the easiest way to make sure your broth is rich in cartilage components.
don't forget the splash of apple cider vinegar when making this broth!
simmer on low in a crock pot for two days.
after 24 hours add broth vegetables for flavor + nutrition.
*if you are not taking pharmaceuticals*
the st johns wort, mullien + burdock tincture is very helpful
bone broth + salve + tincture is a winning combination.
after a month there should be noticeable difference
-especially- if you are dedicated to a healthy diet.
the hermit night time tea blend is a great addition to the team.
it's particularly useful for those needing night time pain support.
you have to get deep, constructive sleep to heal cartilage.
cartilage + sinews are tricky things to remedy,
but every good measure moves you in the right direction.
the other pain salve is also excellent. it's not specific for cartilage repair.
both salves are great to use for prompt relief
but i have found that clients find serious results putting them on at night before bed.
i highly recommend putting either salve on trouble areas at night then placing a castor oil pack over it for an hour.
it's easy to look up how to make one and they are a simple, safe way to get substantial relief naturally.
your skin is your biggest organ. let it sink in over night and you'll notice results by morning.
