This morning I woke up and felt inspired to create a cream specifically for pain & inflammation. Having Lyme Disease I experience ALOT of pain & inflammation specifically in my knee,wrist/hands and ankle.
I was never able to truly find a cream that I felt 100% comfortable using; I always found potencials but they always seemed to have hidden chemicals and artifical colors that were added, and I was not okay with that!… . .
Think of it this way, your skin is your biggest organ, it eats just like you and I eat food, so if you have a product of any kind, think to yourself, if I accidently consummed this would I be worried?… if the answer is yes then you probably shouldn’t be putting it on your skin!
So with that being said, I decided to create my own, one that I trusted on my body and one that my body will love and wouldnt be afraid of consuming.. not saying I am going to grab a spoon and go at it, but if it happened I woudn’t feel harmed in anyway.
I had been infusing cannabis infused in olive oil for quite some time now and suddenly it all made sense as to what I was going to do with it. For awhile I would use the infused oil itself and massage it into my joints and anywhere on my body that felt sore or that was inflammed, but I needed something a bit more; I wanted to fancy it up a bit and have something that I could carry with me anywhere I go without having to worry about spilling oil on my clothes ;/
I couldn’t have picked a better combination, these are a few of my favourite herbs!
Curcumin (Turmeric), Zingiber (Ginger), Capsicum (Cayenne)
I choose these herbs specifically for there herbal actions: anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-timor, analgesic (pain releiver), supports the immune system detoxifier.
