Locked fingers

my brother in law had a bad accident with his table saw and damaged his Hands very badly. After a couple of operations he is doing physical therapy 3 or 4 times daily, and he was using Vaseline but it was slow progress. I came to NS to visit and I happened to have my balm with me so I offered it to him to try….after he massaged it into his fingers there was a remarkable result almost immediately, he could actually bend his fingers to the palm of his hand…he was dancing with joy!
So, 5 stars are not enough a rating as far as we are concerned…THANKYOU..👏👏👏👏👏

Has Worked Wonders..

Having broke my neck when I was a teenager, I'm always looking for a healthy balm to sooth and relax the pain. This one is truly a gem! I knew the black pepper would do wonders and it does! It tingles and smells really fresh. I'm proud to support this local amazing artisan! 100% pure it's a great alternative to toxic pain meds
