and neck muscle soother
The hustle and bustle of everyday life can take a toll on us and stress and tension have a tendency finding their way to temples, head and neck. This potent salve can melt away strains in few minutes with ingredients conveying the capacity to improve blood circulation to the brain, ease inflammation and relieve pain. Taking a few deep breaths and simply inhaling the fragrance of the salve from the little jar might already start clearing things up…
Nearly everyone gets a headache from time to time. There are a few different kinds of headaches, going from relatively mild tension headaches to severe migraine attacks. And they can be triggered by a variety of factors, with the most common cause being prolonged tension or stress. Muscles in the scalp, neck and face tighten and contract, causing spasm and pain that can last for hours or even days at a time. Often neck and shoulder tension can be to blame.
In our Tension Tamer we have put together an array of various herbal extractions to combat this kind of aggravation, targeting the headache from different angles. Depending on the type and severity of the headache, by applying the salve to afflicted areas the distress should melt away relatively fast. Obviously a stern migraine may or may not react in such an easy way, although herbs known to ease even this kind of head pain have been incorporated in our blend.
(It is advisory though to use the salve on a regular basis to prevent migraine attacks rather than as a first aid solution.)
Another cause of headaches can actually also often be dehydration. So do yourself a favor and drink some clean and fresh water as well. Herbal teas may also be good assistants. Peppermint being one of the best herbal remedies for headaches – a tea of dried or fresh leaves will open up constricted blood vessels in the brain, which is often the cause of both migraines and more ‘everyday headaches’.
Directions of use:
Tension Tamer is a potent salve so take care not to apply too close to the eyes. Otherwise rub a little salve wherever you find a need – like temples, forehead, on the head behind the ears, the neck and even tight shoulders if you wish as it also works very well as a muscle soak. Reapply whenever necessary.
A little salve goes a long way!
