We can proudly state that this is perhaps the most beautiful product available on the market to help soothe back and nerve pain! It is estimated that in Australia over 5 million days are lost from work because of back pain. Hypericum Massage Oil helps relieve back pains, nerve root irritation and muscular rheumatism. It does this by soothing the inflammation in the nerve endings and then helps stimulate the formation of regenerated tissue. The oil helps back pain that is the result of a nerve problem, for example a spinal problem, disc problem, where a back nerve is being pinched, or pressure on the nerve etc. For this reason, Hypericum is called the Arnica of the nerves. Where back pain is caused by strained muscles, Arnica Massage Oil is more effective.
Weleda’s heritage dates back to the 1920s in Switzerland, when philosopher Dr Rudolf Steiner and Dr Ita Wegman developed anthroposophic medicine. This form of medicine encourages the individual to see his or her body, mind and spirit as intrinsically linked to our world; all part of one holistic system. Steiner and his team of dedicated scientists and doctors understood that a human body has a remarkable ability to heal itself, but sometimes it needs a little help. So they developed a personal approach to health care using natural ingredients that can holistically work with and support our own body’s healing tendencies.
We strongly believe in supporting your health and beauty, and that of every individual. By doing so, we hope each of us will be empowered to cultivate beauty in the world. For ourselves, for our children, and for the children of all the generations to come.
