Healing with Salves

Fomentation 2- 178x178There is much to be said about the value of a topical herbal application to aid in faster healing.  The use of the herbal extracts as an internal aid for rebuilding a sick or damage system is invaluable but when the use of extracts is added to the topical application of the herbs the body responds very quickly.  The frequent internal use of the herbs keeps the healing nutrition constantly available allowing the body to draw on these nutrients when needed during the day as the healing work continues.  Applying an application of the herbs directly over the injured or affected area will saturate the damaged tissue with the healing herbal combinations allowing an intense work to be affected where most needed.

Topical application can be used for any of the following reasons:

Soft Tissue Injury: The BF&C Salve packed over a soft tissue strain or sprain depending on the degree of injury will quickly clear the issue often overnight.   Apply a good amount of Salve over the affected area, cover with flannel material, then plastic wrap.  Leave in place 6 to 8 hours or overnight.  Repeat if needed.

Tight or spastic muscles: Massage M&L Salve over affected muscles.  Relief is often noted very quickly but can be in as much as five to ten minutes.

Swollen or enlarged lymph nodes: Pack the M&L Salve over affected lymph nodes.  To pack a salve apply a good amount to a double thick piece of Flannel; apply salve side of pack directly over affected area. Hold the pack in place with Press-n-seal, plastic wrap.

Nerve Pain: The General Nervine Salve or the NF Salve will calm the nerves stopping the pain.  Nervine Herbs stop nerve pain.  These Salves are excellent aids for the pain of Shingles, painful tender knees, hands ect. They directly affect the throbbing, spastic nerve, quieting the nerve down so the pain stops.  The awareness of injury is still there but the pain has stopped. This is an excellent tool to calm painful inflamed conditions while not numbing the body.  The use of pain medication which numbs the affected area creates a situation where it is easy to over use the injured part causing more damage and pain.

Whip Lash, Neck Injury: Use the M&L Salve to stop the muscle spasm in the neck then pack with the BF&C Salve to heal the injured, torn, neck tissue.  Treatment can be repeated as needed until the body has mended; often in three to six months.
