But as part of our ever-present desire to improve our experience and offerings, we have updated our Joint and Muscle Blend. It’s still the same lotion-based formula you love with a different selection of essential oils that are more finely-tuned for your needs: Clove, Birch, and Cinnamon! This blend is stronger than the original, so it lasts longer.

This also now comes in a convenient pumper bottle, which is easier on the joints :). It also contains Trauma Trio, a blend of three carrier oils (from The Herbal Guy), which are excellent for healing and nourishing.

Are you interested in our new and improved blend? Let us know! We are working to get it up in our store as soon as possible. Have a great week!

Ravishing Rosemary

Hello friends! Today I want to talk about Rosemary (Rosemarinus officianlis), a very helpful herb. Of course, you’ve probably come across Rosemary in a garden or on a plate – it makes a delicious cooking herb! But according to the Aromatic Wisdom Institute, Rosemary is good for more than chicken.

Did you know that Rosemary, like Thyme, has several different variations (chemotypes)? There are three major chemotypes: camphor1,8 cineoleand verbenone. Each variation has slightly different properties, making it important to know what you are getting into!

Camphor helps to improve circulation, while 1,8 cineole is good for the respiratory system. Verbenone also helps clear the airways of mucous, but it also regenerates the skin, making it great for skincare.

Rosemary is great for the scalp. You can add the oil to shampoo or use a hydrosol to refresh the scalp and treat dandruff and hair loss. The camphor chemotype makes a great remedy for sore and tired muscles when mixed with a carrier and massaged into the skin.

Rosemary stimulates the mind and brings energy. It also helps with clarity and strength of the mind. The herb is antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antispasmodic. It helps with gas, congestion, and fever, and it has a warming effect on the body.

We use Rosemary in our joint and muscle lotion blend. It’s awesome for sore muscles and arthritic joints. It also helps with more superficial skin issues, like bruises and scrapes.

So what do you think? Have you learned something about Rosemary you never knew before? We want to hear from you!
