This Valentine's weekend is all about love. So how about showing some love to an important person in your life — you. Do your body and your mind a favor this Hallmark holiday and practice some holistic pain relief. Stetch, take a warm bath, meditate, or yeah... just watch some Netflix. And if you're looking for the perfect gift to give that special somebody (your body), head over to Double N Urban Farm & Apothecary.
Double N creates seasonal herbal body care products, all made with intention. This means they carefully select all natural, organic, ingredients and combine them into wonderful lotions, salves, teas, tinctures and more. They have an enchanting farm that truly creates healing products. You have to check out their website Double N Urban Homestead to get a look into their daily life at Double N... totally made me daydream about owning a farm. Stunning.
The lovely folks at Double N sent over two of their pain relieving products for EH to try out — Fire Muscle Rub and Headcase Headache Relief. Everyone that has come in contact with me in the last two months knows I've been suffering from sharp neck pains and blinding headaches. They started right around the new year, and with a combination of herbal remedies and old fashion physical therapy, they've been going away little by little. These two awesome products have been a part of my treatment and I swear to you they've been worth their weight in gold.
Let's talk about the Fire Muscle Rub. This salve is completely unique, and really does have a warming feeling to it. It's perfect for achey sore backs and necks, but you can use it on any unhappy muscle to get some sweet soothing relief. The cayenne & arnica infused olive oil really contributes to it's warming properties, and the coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax create a smooth solid, where a little bit goes a long way. The essential oils of clove, ginger and cinnamon are key in providing strong relief.
Now for the Headcase Headache Relief — oh how I've been taking this with me everywhere. I never know when a headache will strike, and it's so important to be prepared at the first sign of one. Head Case has some truly unique ingredients that I haven't seen elsewhere. This blend includes amethyst infused sunflower oil! Amethyst?! I mean, I love the way they look... but they provide pain relief too? Yes, incredibly, they do. The blend also consists of peppermint, frankincense, lavender, basil, chamomile, eucalyptus and rosemary essential oils. Just rub it on your temples and neck 2-4 times a day and remember to breathe in. You'll feel it's soothing powers in no time. If you suffer from headaches, this is a purse must have.
What's really beautiful and unique about Double N Urban Farm and Apothecary is that they grow their own plants. They see them through and nurture them from seed to product. You are truly supporting organic and local farming by purchasing products from them. An extra something to feel good about, when you're feeling good from their products.
