Pain Relief Salve

Pain Relief Salve

Formulated by a Dr. of Chinese Medicine, this herbal salve is loaded with powerful Chinese herbs for healing and relieving pain. This 1 oz tin is perfect to keep in your purse, office, take to the gym or on a trip. 


Pain Relief Salve has sunflower oil infused with two powerful pain relieving herbs- corydalis and mugwort, plus tamanu oil which is anti- inflammatory and helps with pain as well.


Corydalis (Yan Hu Suo) is a member of the Papaveraceae (poppy) family of plants, it is able to interact with the same pain receptor sites in the human body as opiates to reduce pain, In Chinese medicine it works by activating blood, moving qi and relieving pain.


Mugwort (Ai Ye) is used to relieve joint pain as well as cramps. It is traditionally used as Moxa or boiled in water and made into a bath or a foot soak. Mugwort is mildly stimulating to the nervous system, reducing tension and increasing circulation and nutrition in the nerves and muscles.


Tamanu Oil is a fatty nut oil that is pressed from the seeds of the tamanu tree. It is often used as a skin care ingredient for anti-aging and wound healing because of its anti inflammatory effects.  (see allergy note below)


I use this in my clinic all the time and my patients love it. I have not added any essential oils in order to let the chinese herbs shine, so it will smell "herby", but I have found that the scent dissipates quickly. But you are free to add any oils or scent you like if the scent bothers you.


***Mugwort can cause an allergic reaction to those with sensitivities to plants in the Asteraceae family. It should not be used during pregnancy as it stimulates the uterus.***


***Tamanu oil comes from the seeds of the tamanu tree, but it is classified as a nut tree. If you are allergic to nuts, you shouldn’t use tamanu oil. ***
