Woodland Chill Balm Muscle Rub

Available in Autumn, this muscle rub not only soothes the muscle, it also opens the lungs working as an expectorant and decongestant. 

The cool feeling of the forest air, the soil beneath the feet, and the relaxant experience is what this blend exudes. The botanicals included help quell inflammation, unravel tight muscles, and circulate any stagnancy in the body. Immortelle is a powerhouse for the bumps and scrapes of life: be it physical or emotional. Blue tansy’s deep cerulean blue hues combat inflammation and heat in the body to dispel tensions and anxieties. Along with german chamomile, the azulene in these oils that makes them blue speaks to their powerful calming effects that work wonders on the spasms and tensions in the body. Peppermint cools and circulates while the the trees of cypress, wintergreen, and balsam fir encourage strength and resiliency by helping to move out congestion and stagnancy, the very things that encourage lethargy, keeping us stuck and unable to move. Bee balm is a gentle yet effective antiviral and antibacterial, bolstering the immune system. It helps open the lungs for deep breaths, which in turns allows our muscles to become more porous and pliant.

Autumn practices balance the flip of energy, moving from the expansion of summer and into the contraction of autumn. Both breath-work and utilizing plant aroma open up the lungs to ensure congestion does not become trapped, creating illness, a disharmony. Potions in autumn work to not only open the lungs but descend one’s energy down into the root system to replenish vitality and gather the inner will required for winter’s dark night. All perfumes are beneficial in autumn, as are decongestant and astringent essences.
