Birch Balm is an exquisitely simple, yet powerful balm made from wild Maine White Birch Trees.  Birch leaf and ethically harvested bark are gently infused in organic olive oil and sprinkled with a touch of birch essential oil to bring about a lovely balm that has a beautiful energetic that is almost magical.  

Birch is analgesic and anti-inflammatory , which means it can relieve pain and inflammation.  It helps increase circulation and smooths the regulation of blood flow.  It  is an excellent choice for those suffering from conditions such as arthritis and muscle/joint pain.  It is antiseptic and may help relieve and prevent skin infections.  It is detoxifying and may help with clearing out toxins in particular in the kidneys and liver.  Birch is also a wonderful expectorant and may help relieve chest congestion and promote freer breathing.  Birch also is an excellent insect repellant.  

Birch essential oil is extremely potent and this balm has been diluted to about a 5% concentration.  Because Birch is such a strong oil, it is not recommended for pregnant women, breast feeding mothers, and should be used with extreme caution in children under ten years of age.  If sensitivity occurs, discontinue use.  

Ingredients:  Organic olive oil infused with wild Maine White Birch leaf and bark, birch essential oil, beeswax.
