anti-inflammatory pain relief cream for joints

$35.00

60gm. I started making hypericum oil in the early 90s – collecting the fresh flowers in the wild. Taking a picnic and walking and soaking up fresh air – I still love doing it. It is such a powerful healing oil, I began to use it in all my creams and adding it to all new designs. In 2000 one of my favourite long term clients had developed severe back pain and couldn’t sleep. I insisted on spinal Xrays and the Dr insisted on a bone density test. Crystal deposits, or spurs, could be seen on the ends of bones in three spinal process junctions.
