Rain forest Salve
~ Rainforest Collection | Fall 2017 limited edition ~
Words by Isabella, creator of Last Meridian Earth
"From its sunny hues to its intricate scent, this salve contains the daily miracles of people from v e r y far away.
The deep and rich yellow from the indigenous beeswax. The misterious scent from Copaiba (don't you worry, it fades away rather quickly leaving a lovely, delicate note). And the essential healing from Cordia, Chenopodium (grass of Santa Maria) and Arnica make them proof that simple medicine is the most effective and that their wisdom - persisting despite all - have profound healing to offer you.
Copaiba is divine! Its oil has a long history of health promotion among the indigenous people of Amazon. Earthy, exotic, sensual and warm, Copaiba is a vital tree that supports the body, mind & spirit. Among the traditional people it was often used for reflection and introspection while supporting focused attention and tranquility, promoting emotional healing on all levels. Topically, it is a potent anti-inflammatory, antibacterial + antiseptic remedy that is very cooling + soothing.
I fell in love with Cordia this time around... its history and presence in the southeastern coast of Brazil, so close to home. Cordia has long held a place in alternative medicine as an effective anti-inflammatory for internal and external use for various types of inflammatory diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, arthritis, sciatica, bruising, fibromyalgia, rheumatism ... the list goes on. In the Brazilian Amazon forest, indigenous tribes usually prepare an infusion with the leaves for the treatment of infections of all types.
I've been using the oil and salve on myself and closed ones for a while now with great results. It offers great relief to bruises and wounds and it seems to shorten the healing process of tissues. Both oil and salve are very nourishing and moisturizing to the skin... Sometimes I find myself adding a bit to my pulses and temples for an olfactory experience.
