A little history on how our Spectacular Ache Away Salve came to be and the powerful herbs we use in its formulation.
This blend of Arnica and Comfrey really packs a powerhouse of herbs, along with other botanicals, to reduce swelling and pain from soft tissue injuries. This product should only be used topically. Our Spectacular Ache Away was originally developed this product for a client, as I am a Master Herbalist and Licensed Massage Therapist. The client ended up with a really bad sprained ankle and a partially torn ligament. I immediately went to my apothecary and formulated this product for use on the injured area. The client had immediate relief and the injury healed within 8-10 days without any lingering issues that bad sprains usually present.
Arnica & Comfrey: Healing Herbs
Arnica is a go-to herb for any herbalist to aide in reduction of bruising, inflammation, and soft tissue damage. It helps increase circulation and decrease pain, swelling, and bruising.
Comfrey is an amazing herb known as “Bone Mend” and helps even broken bones heal faster. This amazing herb helps cells reproduce much faster in order to heal injuries due to allantoin (one of its main constituents). It also helps reduce inflammation for this reason as well as due to the rosmarinic acid also present in this herb.
What Else Is In Our Spectacular Ache Away?
We also include naturally derived Menthol and Camphor crystals in this recipe for added pain and inflammation relief. The last herb in this formula is Chapparal which helps with both internal inflammation and minor skin issues. This is a great buffer herb for making sure to allow the other herbs and botanicals to work without irritating the skin which can sometimes happen with Menthol and Camphor. Chaparral has been used for thousands of years by Native Americans to reduce skin inflammation like eczema, psoriasis, and contact dermatitis which is a reaction of the skin to external chemical compounds or natural plants that can cause irritation.
