CIRCULATION BLEND

Healthy blood vessels confer the benefit of promoting proper cardiovascular circulation.  Not just the strength and suppleness, or tone, of our vessels, but the unrestricted flow of blood they allow are keys to right movement of life-giving blood throughout the body. 

However, when our circulation needs boosting, this blend may be applied to feet, legs, or hands to invigorate the blood supply and warm the body.

Do not use herbal products to replace necessary care by a qualified physician.

BLACK PEPPER, Piper nigrum, organic

Black Pepper essential oil is a rubefacient oil, warming to the body by expanding blood vessels and increasing blood flow.  

Tested at low dose non-toxic.  Possible skin irritant.  Large amounts may damage the kidneys.

 

CARDAMON, Elettaria cardamomum, naturally farmed

Cardamon essential oil is also warming to the body, thereby stimulating blood flow.

VETIVERT, Andropogon zizanoides, naturally farmed

Vetivert essential oil strengthens red blood cells, improving blood flow and the transport of oxygen in the body.

Peppermint essential oil also widens blood vessels, increasing blood flow.

Tested at low dose non-toxic.  Best used well-diluted to avoid skin irritation.  Possible sensitization.  Avoid in pregnancy, lactation, and in close contact with infants due to risk of spasm of the glottis.

 

GINGER ROOT Liquid Extract, Zingiber officinale, organic

Contains pure herb, distilled water, grain spirits (~26% by volume), and vegetable glycerin.

Ginger Root warms and stimulates areas of the body that are cold, constricted, or inactive.  It thins the blood by reducing the aggregation of platelets, thereby causing an increase in circulation.  It offers benefit when peripheral circulation is poor.

Avoid with active gallstone disease.  Avoid with blood thinning medication.  May potentiate anti-platelet medication.  Large doses may cause gastrointestinal disturbance.  Excessive doses of preparations made from fresh Ginger root have been reported to cause dry mouth, sore throat, nosebleeds, and kidney inflammation.

 

PRICKLY ASH BARK Liquid Extract, Zanthoxylum americanum, organic/wild crafted

Contains pure herb, distilled water, grain spirits (~26% by volume), and vegetable glycerin.

Prickly Ash Bark benefits capillary circulation, thus bringing blood closer to the periphery and improving sensation.

Avoid during pregnancy.

 

ROSEMARY LEAF Liquid Extract, Rosmarinus officinalis, organic

Rosemary Leaf brings stimulation to weak peripheral circulation and warmth to cold extremities.

Avoid during pregnancy.  Use with caution if diabetic and monitor blood sugar levels.  Avoid with blood thinning medication.  Avoid with low blood pressure. Ingestion of a phenolic-rich extract of Rosemary leaf reduced absorption of non-heme iron.  

 

GINSENG ROOT (American) Infused Oil, Panax quinquefolius, organic

Contains pure herb infused into Sunflower Oil with vitamin E oil added for preservation.

Known as a stimulating herb, Ginseng Root extends that effect to the circulatory system.

Avoid with use of warfarin (Coumadin).  Use with caution if diabetic and monitor blood sugar levels.   

 

ALOE GEL, Aloe barbadensis, organic

Contains Aloe Vera, Ascorbic Acid and Citric Acid as preservatives and Xanthan as thickener.
