Massage Oil Remedies for common problems
Eastern Botanicals has applied the wisdom of traditional herb formulations to the creation of our herb-infused Remedy Oils. These products are designed for topical application to local affected areas, rather than whole body massage. The Remedy Oils are created by infusing sesame oil with high quality concentrated herb granules. The herb combinations are similar to that found in many Chinese herbal liniments for trauma and bruising, or arthritis (traditionally called Wind Cold Damp syndrome). Sesame oil is highly esteemed in Ayurvedic medicine for its ability to absorb quickly and penetrate the deepest tissue layers. Modern science has identified its rich linoleic acid content as well as antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The three formulations available are Tendon Ease, RheumatOil, and Menstrual Ease.
Herb Infused Skin Creams
Our skin creams use sesame oil and beeswax to deliver traditional formulations of Chinese herbs directly into the skin. Our Replenishing Formula for dry skin can be used as an all purpose moisturizer and anti-aging remedy. The purple root that gives the cream its colour has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory action, and it promotes healthy blood circulation. This cream is based on a famous traditional remedy called Purple Clouds Ointment.
According to Oriental Medicine diagnosis most skin rashes are related to the elements of Wind and Heat affecting the surface of the body. Our Acute Formula skin cream is infused with herbs that are traditionally attributed with the functions of "expelling external wind" and "clearing heat and toxins". The cream is designed to provide short term relief from red, irritated skin eruptions. It is also helpful when applied to insect bites that are swollen and itchy.
