Arthritis, both Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis cause so much pain and stiffness in so many people. Muscle soreness can also be a real "pain"... get it? Anyway, I developed this balm, over the last couple of years to help with both muscle pain and arthritis. It is herbal infused and has a strong blend of essential oils that is safe for diabetics, heart related issues and medication. But PLEASE CONSULT WITH YOUR PHYSICIAN for any medicial contraindications (side effects with the essential oils and medications or medical problems).
This balm is focused on the cause of pain, the anti-inflammatory, neurative, pain reducing and healing properties are more effective with consistent and continued use. Think of it as a herbal remedy that you take on a schedule. 2-3 times a day is recommended. Use no more than 1 time every 2 hrs. Please take one day off a week to let your liver detox. There are hepatics in this balm (liver detoxing properties) but every body needs a day of rest from all essential oils, it is for your safety.

Frankincense~ works by blocking substances (leukotrienes) that attack healthy joints in autoimmune diseases such as RA. It may arrest the progress of rheumatoid arthritis by inhibiting the production of certain inflammatory substances, thus preventing the damage they cause to the cartilages. The monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes in the oil are responsible for this healing effect.
Clove Bud~ is high in eugenol, and a powerful anti-inflammatory. It has been observed that eugenol reverses inflammation and cellular oxidation (which speeds the aging process). Eugenol was also effective in reducing the migration of leukocytes to the joints thus reducing inflammation and swelling. Clove Bud enhances the levels of anti-inflammatory cytokines like IL-10 while reducing the levels of inflammatory mediators. Is capable of reducing pain (analgesic) and decreasing the perception of pain (anti-nociceptive) by acting on various pathways and systems. Can help reduce oxidative stress and damage by removing free radicals and reactive oxygen species from body which helps decrease inflammation and prevent progression of arthritis caused by such oxidative damage.Clove oil is a great anti-microbial agent and therefore it could prove to be helpful in preventing and fighting infectious arthritis.
