Five Powers Balm

Inspired by Wintercrest Magic Balm, except it is "milder" to the senses. It is unique in that it has only essential oils, rather than components like camphor and menthol.   It utilizes those components as they naturally occur.   Used for pain relief and healing.  I developed this when working on my husband's knee surgery.  Seemed to help greatly.  His knee is healing "way ahead of schedule" and "phenomenally".
This one is strong. Keep away from mucus membranes and eyes.   Dilute further with a carrier oil for massage on small areas or feet.  Can be used prior to exercise or after.  Versatile.

 Contains: the Earth elements of Palo Santo and Tansy; Water elements of White Thyme  and German Chamomile;  Fire elements of Clove and Cinnamon; Air elements of Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Spearmint; Spirit (Ether) elements of Birch, Copaiba and Rosemary in a base of Jojoba oil, Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Pine Rosin, Olive Oil and Bees Wax.  2 ounce jar, $23.  May also be purchased as a roll on in a base of 50 % fractionated coconut oil.  10 ML, $15.

"This Five Powers Balm is INCREDIBLE for pain relief. I recently used it on a muscle ache in my hip/lower back. Felt so good I've also used it on my neck to help relieve tension headaches...Chelsea"

Wild At Heart

An amazing Heart and Wood blend  originally created by Aaron, but tweaked a little by me. Transports to the wilderness and woods, but with mellow and sweet notes. Uplifting, yet grounding.   Great blend for  emotional support. I LOVE this blend and can't get enough of it these days.  Use on Fire, Earth or Water Toes.  Be sure and dilute for any use.  Do not use on skin that will be exposed to sunlight.

 Contains: Canadian spruce, African sandalwood, Texas and Himalayan cedars, cinnamon leaf, copaiba, Wild orange and clove.

10 ml=$13, $25

Ocean Jasper


The ocean jasper had to be complex blend featuring all its amazing colors and components-- Brings to mind gentle, slightly salty ocean breezes and sea side air. This one’s meant for dilution as massage oil and wearing as fragrance for peace of mind, patience, stability, meditation. Uplifting, balancing, refreshing, clarifying, supremely anti-infectious infused with aromatic anti-oxidants.  Initiates the color spectrums of blue-green, interfacing between the mountain woodlands and the sea.

  Distinctive base notes of Seabuckthorn, Ledum (the unusual and unique “Greenland Moss”)  and Seaweed. Woody heart notes of Juniper and a touch of the tropical Massoia Bark.  Great by itself, or layered under a Sky Blend.  Very nice layered with Red Jasper.  Can be used on any toe or for whole foot massage. Dilute of course, and do not use on skin that will be exposed to sunlight.

Also Contains: Green Mandarin, Lemon, Blue Cypress, Ylang Ylang, Lavindin, Lavender, Yuzu, White Grapefruit, Black Pine and Blue Tansy

10 ml=$22, $43

Lavender Balm for Horses and People

Contains Pure High Altitude Organic French Lavender in a base of pure organic Fractionated coconut oil…25% - 75%. It has a wonderful moisturizing effect on your skin and will not go rancid.
This dilution is safe to use on equine or human skin.  It has a long term effect and does not need to be re-applied. Can be used on a terra cotta pendant around your neck for a lasting effect.  
You can further dilute it by up to another 60-70% and still retain the aromatherapy effects. Use coconut, olive oil or other suitable carrier oil.
Lavender has been shown to be a most effective product for training and calming horses.  You can use it on tack, blankets, rider's clothing or hands.  Horses have an extremely acute sense of smell.. Rub some on your hands, let horse smell it from about 6 inches away, then rub the horse's muzzle, avoiding mouth and nostrils. Your horse may even try licking or tasting it.  This is ok in this dilution.
You will probably see the horse begin to relax, eyes will get soft and blink easily,  taking deeper, slower breaths which aid in getting more oxygen. Remember to concentrate on your own breathing, too.
Use every day before riding or training and when your horse is engaged in stressful situations such as transport, vet visits or attending shows or clinics.  Or use as a reward when a training task has been accomplished.

1 oz. plastic bottle with pop out top for ease of application.  I like this so I don't have to worry about unscrewing a lid and dropping it when dealing with a horse.  Reasonably priced at $13.  Add $4 for shipping, one bottle. $5 for shipping up to 5 bottles.
