Anti-Inflammatory Summer Salve


This Anti-Inflammatory Salve is our summer version of the Anti-Inflammatory Cream. Being located in Texas, whipped creams do not ship well in hot temperatures, but a salve works perfectly and provides the exact same ingredients and benefits. Once you receive your order, simply place the jar in the refrigerator for a couple of hours to cool it, and then it can be stored wherever you like.

This product is a much healthier alternative to treat inflammation than prescription or over the counter medications. Over-the-counter and prescription anti inflammatory medications prevent cartridge growth and joint healing. All they do is mask the pain.

Ancient healers have been using pure essential oils derived from plants and trees to treat a wide range of inflammatory diseases for thousands of years. Now, scientists have finally proven that the anti-inflammatory properties of seven essential oils work in similar ways as NSAIDs (Naproxin, Ibuprofen, etc.) to inhibit enzymes called cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) which promote inflammation, swelling, and pain in the body.

To make this cream, I use my basic body butter formula, along with some organic beeswax, and the following essential oils. Their benefits are as follows:

  • Thyme’s anti-inflammatory action is found to be the most potent. Its oil is capable of reducing levels of COX-2 enzymes by as much as 75 percent. Carvacrol, a compound found in thyme oil, is believed to be the active agent responsible for the inflammation-inhibiting behavior of thyme. In tests, pure extracts of carvacrol decreased COX-2 levels by more than 80 percent.
  • Frankincense can inhibit the production of key inflammatory molecules associated with conditions like arthritis and can be useful in helping to prevent the breakdown of the cartilage tissue. This has been shown to significantly reduce levels of inflammation, making it a natural treatment option for pain-related conditions that affect the muscles, joints and tendons.
  • Turmeric has powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, and antioxidant properties. Inflammation, if left untreated, can become a chronic health issue. And unlike aspirin or ibuprofen, turmeric’s curcumin reduces inflammation naturally, without damaging the liver or kidneys. It has been found especially helpful in treating conditions like arthritis, sports injuries, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohn’s disease, tendonitis and various autoimmune diseases. Some research even suggests that curcumin may also help those suffering asthma, inflammatory bowel disease and, yes, even cancer.
  • Myrrh also had anti-inflammatory properties, and it’s often used in tandem to treat arthritis. A study published in Scientific Reports showed that frankincense and myrrh are highly effective in treatment of inflammatory diseases, especially when combined. The study revealed that frankincense and myrrh, especially when used together, suppress inflammation and the intensity of joint inflammation. Results showed that the individual extract of frankincense or myrrh and combined extracts used to treat groups showed significant differences when compared with the arthritis control group.
  • Eucalyptus has been proven to ease and cool joint pain, as well as be a powerful anti-inflammatory and analgesic. A great addition to any anti-inflammatory formula.
  • Orange oil has strong anti-inflammatory properties that are highly effective for fighting pain. A 2009 study published in the European Journal of Medical Research investigated the antioxidant potential of various essential oils, reporting that orange was the most highly effective of those studied, which in turn makes it a great essential oil for arthritis treatment.
  • Clove‘s eugenol, the primary component of clove’s volatile oils, functions as an anti-inflammatory substance. Clove also contains a variety of flavonoids, including kaempferol and rhamnetin, which also contribute to it‘s anti-inflammatory(and antioxidant properties.
