Resin

The resin that oozes from a tree has the purpose of cleansing and healing any wounds that occur in its skin (bark). This protects the tree against infection and invasions. The same properties occur in us when we use resins.

The balsamic scents in this blend warm the body and support the lungs. The boswellic acids from the frankincense used are known to help against joint pain, arthritis, asthma, and even against certain cancers (in vitro tests). The Opoponax infused jojoba oil warms the body, treats wounds, and clears respiratory congestion. It also has antiseptic properties. Turmeric and ginger are well known their ability to fight inflammation and also heat up and purge the body of pathogens. Since many pathogens travel in through the porous pores of the skin, this balm is a boon to tighten the defenses of your Wei chi field.

This balm was designed to support the lungs when the weather turns cold, as this is the most injurious atmospheric influence on the lungs. It is also good for any spot treatment for wounds, cuts, or scrapes, and is also a great massage balm for cold winter nights as it will heat you up through your core. It leaves a sweet and balsamic scent on your skin which works to restore any weak conditions in the body.
