I work hard, I mean hard. Because I live off the grid in the woods following a life very close to that of the 1800s Pioneer homesteaders, I do everything manually. It is winter. That means cutting trees down, cutting them into logs, and then hand splitting those logs one at a time before hauling them to the wood pile to be stacked piece by piece. Like I said, I work hard. So I hurt often. Sore muscles are part of my way of life. But I like to feel better soon so I can get back at it as well. So I often turn to natural remedies where there are no side effects and lasting healing unlike their counterparts, pharmaceutical drugs that have side effects and only mask the root of the problem seemingly working on the symptoms only.
Recently I was turned onto Little Moon Essentials healing salves. They are natural and made with high grade essential oils and guaranteed to work as they say. So I asked for a few samples and received a tiny tin of Asana Kisser salve. Funny name but serious quality! I am an herbalist, and this salve really impressed me. I have also tried many natural remedies that claim they take the pain away when rubbed on your muscles. Most do not work for me, but these little salves by Little Moon Essentials really worked, and in no time flat too. I used the salves on my 13 year old daughter who made her lower back sore while helping dad around the homestead recently and she even stated that it worked very good.
I had to use the salve on my elbows, wrists and shoulders after a hard day of cutting, splitting and stacking firewood recently. I was sore and the salve actually made the pain less but did not fully take it away. Although, significantly less. There was not a offending smell to the salve and I love the fact that they are hand made and owned not by a large corporation, but an individual. According to their website, “Asana Kisser is a pain-relieving solid massage salve for all the damage you do to your body. It is strongly warming and comforting for bruises, strains, sprains, & most other aches and pains.” I can say it meets that description completely.
The Asana Kisser salve would make really great gifts and they are a great addition to your “natural” medical kit. For me, the salve were not hard, they were perfect consistency, which is usually an issue with salves as they get cold. I liked her website a lot, it talked about love and compassion for the earth and all beings, she even offers Zafu meditation cushions and Hindu Diety home alters for the spiritually minded. I especially like the story where Laura talks about how it all started and how she healed herself of Eczema using ginger! Over all, I give this product 5 stars and would totally recommend it to my friends and family and she will probably see me ordering more product from her in the near future.
