Raptor Calm Balm
Raptor Calm Balm
One Red Moon as I was curled up in bed with my heating pad, someone asked me to describe what my menstrual cramps were like.
The first comparison that came to mind was that it felt like a hundred tiny raptors in my body were clawing and eating away at my uterus before setting out to wreak havoc wherever else they felt like. Especially my lower back ...and occasionally my psyche.
Formulated to soothe, warm, and promote emotional balance, this Raptor Calm Balm is meant to ease your body’s natural pains - whether a headache, menstrual cramps, sore shoulders, or any other ailment resulting from tension.
It comes in a .75 oz twist up container for easy application which means you don’t have to get any on your hands if you don’t want to. However, having another person assist with the application process can help to relax your muscles and aid in more rapid absorption.
Simply rub the balm directly onto your lower abdomen, shoulders, upper or lower back, and/or hips, massaging it in thoroughly. After 5-10 minutes, you can add a heating pad or other warming element to the mix for even greater therapeutic benefits.
This Raptor Calm Balm was formulated to ensure the most soothing scent and relaxing feel possible. I started that with a base of Beeswax, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, and Vitamin E. Beeswax has many nourishing properties, and is well known as a protectorate for skin, sealing out dirt and its ilk. Coconut Oil has wonderful restorative and moisturizing properties on its own, but at Kiwi’s Terpicals, I take the extra step of infusing it over low heat with dried Melissa officinalis (Lemon Balm) leaves added; a process that has been shown to have a positive effect on mood and promote overall relaxation. There are also two different Olive Oil infusions that I add in to work their special magic: Calendula and Roman Chamomile. Calendula has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb; it is known to increase circulation in the area where it is applied, and supports healthy skin. Roman Chamomile has been shown to have a calming effect on the skin and the nervous system, as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-itching properties. These infusions, together with other the other elements listed below, create a solid base that is applicable as a stick, but that melts into and nourishes your skin while acting as a massage oil.
Once the base has come together, I add my proprietary blend of essential oils including Clary Sage, Ginger, Clove Bud, and Sweet Marjoram to really calm those raptors down. Clary Sage is known to help blood flow and circulation, which helps to relax cramps and reduce inflammation. Ginger is warming, and has stimulating and anti-inflammatory properties. Clove Bud has a huge list of benefits, the main reason it was selected to be in this balm is for its blood stimulating properties. Sweet Marjoram is very calming and balancing, and has been shown to help with muscle cramps and stress reduction. Each of these essential oils plus those derived from Lavender, Peppermint, Cinnamon Bark, Juniper Berry, Eucalyptus, Bergamot, Geranium, Ylang Ylang, Yarrow, and Cinnamon Leaf comes together with every other carrier oils to form a balm that really does everything to calm the raptors inside, and provide mental relief with its relaxing aroma.
This Raptor Calm Balm was designed with care and crafted with love for you to celebrate and enjoy your beautiful body in the healthiest most natural way possible. It is free of artificial preservatives, artificial colors and dyes, synthetics, parabens, animal products, and animal by-products.
