First Aid Kit #21

This is a balm created to support movement, whether it be a slow contemplative yoga session, a trip to the gym or a strenuous workout in the garden. Flex & Extend is full of herbs and remedies to help soothe aches and pains to bring comfort at the end of a demanding day. Rub gently and slowly into the affected area as needed, it may help to ease stiffness and pain.

In a quickly absorbed base of Shea Butter, Almond and Jojoba oils, Meadowsweet was added, picked in the Hebrides for its long history of anti-inflammatory action. Juniper was also added, for its anti-rheumatic properties, Lavender Angustifolia to calm and soothe the mind and relax the body and Rosemary for its reputed analgesic properties. To this potent combination Homeopathic Rhus tox for stiff, aching joints was added as was Arnica for muscle pain and Ruta because it is a wonderful remedy for stiffness and inflammation. 

A.S Apothocary are unique in the world of skincare. A small batch distillery making natural scents, creams, aromatic waters and balms from flowers, bark, leaves, roots, blossom and moss that they grow or pick wild in the fields, mountains and gardens that they love in Sussex, Cyprus and Scotland. The business has grown from a particular way of being, of gathering and noticing. It’s a slow, meditative process, a precise art that has been passed from hand-to-hand drawing on the alchemy of intuition and the wisdom of generations of healers, travellers and makers.
