Spruce balm

The healing effects of spruce resin are known to our grandparents, who prepared the spruce ointment themselves. It was used to relieve skin problems. They not only used it for themselves, they also treated livestock with it. Spruce resin tincture was also sometimes used as a first aid for gastrointestinal pain.

Spruce resin

Records of the healing effects of spruce resin and methods of use date back to the time of Hippocrates. Spruce resin protects the spruce from drying out and helps it heal the damaged part of the trunk or branch. Conifer resins are a mixture of diterpene organic carboxylic acids and essential oil. The resin is formed in the resin glands in the tree. Heals damage to the trunk of a tree and does the same with our skin.

Development

Smrekomaz was created on the basis of our own research, which has been conducted for the last 5 years in collaboration with a microbiologist and test users of different age groups. We designed the texture in cooperation with the Enost massage and relaxation technique center (click on the magnifying glass) and based on the opinions of satisfied users. Taking into account the environmental aspect, we prepared returnable glass packaging.

Content

Spruce resin, sunflower oil, olive oil and beeswax. Sunflower oil is rich in vitamins A, C, D and E and does not clog skin pores. Olive oil is an indispensable part of a healthy diet and personal care products. Beeswax provides a firmer texture to the ointment, but it also has quite a few healing properties. The lifespan of ointments is extended by storage in the refrigerator, but is not necessarily necessary.

Introduction

Spruce resin is a mixture of a firmer structure that is soluble in oil and contains essential oil and a lot of resin acids.

Records of the healing effects of spruce resin and methods of use date back to the time of Hippocrates. It was mostly used for skin diseases and injuries - healing wounds, inflammations, purulent and fungal ulcers, burns, abrasions, bruising, bruising and similar skin problems.

The main and unique ingredient of Spruce is spruce resin, which can be harvested throughout the year.

I collect spruce resin with the help of a wooden stick, without damaging the tree. There are many spruces that have damage for one reason or another (harvesting wood, woodpeckers etc.) 

Smrekomaz is filled into 40 ml and 106 ml reusable glass jars. 

The ointment is applied to the skin in a thin layer, if necessary, continue with thicker layers (burns, blisters, bedsores, wounds). If itching occurs, stop using balm (possibility of allergic reactions).

Smrekomaz is handmade and is awarded with the label"Bear friendly"“.

Spruce balm Smrekomaz is not a product of mass production. The contents of each pot are prepared, purified and filled by my hand. Deviations in the amount of content may occur. The ointment is not tested on animals and is produced in accordance with the principles of good manufacturing practice.
