About Hemp Root Balm
Cannabis is one of the planet’s most versatile plants. Every single part of it serves a useful purpose for mankind; the seeds, the leaves, the flower, the stems and the fibre. But an often overlooked part of the plant known to hold many therapeutic benefits, is the root!
Use of hemp root for medicinal purposes dates back to 77CE (that’s “common era“). Hemp root has been written about in ancient medical texts from China, Persia, Europe, south America, Indonesia and Réunion Island.
It was used as an effective treatment for gout, painful joints, fever, inflammation, birthing difficulties, burns & callouses, and more.
Hemp root was traditionally:
- prepared as a hot water decoction (like a tea) and taken orally
- applied topically as a poultice (herbal compress)
- ground up and taken with wine
- mixed with fat or butter and taken orally or applied as a salve
Our Hemp Root Balm is a rich and buttery salve that works deep into the skin and penetrates to warm and soothe sore joints, sore muscles and everyday aches. Besides healing hemp root infused olive oil, calendula healing oil is another star ingredient. Calendula healing oil is famous for its anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties. It’s an essential ingredient in many traditional and folk remedies. These two miracle oils are complimented by moisturising shea butter, cocoa butter and aloe vera. The added light scents of therapeutic lavender and warming rosemary essential oils work together to enhance circulation and regeneration.
