The balm of the tiger is known worldwide and helps for a lot of complaints.
But I asked myself whether it is possible to make a similar balm
out of herbs and essential oils that grow in Europe and North America.
I had this idea because I love to use herbs that grow where I live.
The power animal of this western balm should be the bear, I thought,
because the bear has a strong connection to Europe and North America.
And the bear is really a powerful animal to allay lots of complaints. ;-)
Therefore the balm ist called: Bear Balm.
I used St-Johns-Worth Oil to give a red colour to the bear balm.
You could use another oil, but then the Bear Balm is not red.
The essential oils I used are from herbs that can grow
in Europe or North America:
Juiper bush, Lavenders, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme.
They are good for the blood supply, have antibiotic effects,
allay pains, release spasm und help to breathe.
You can apply the Bear Balm on hurting parts of the body.
It helps against:
Headache (applied on forehead and temples)
Applied on breast and back the mint balm can help against a cough.
Never put Bear Balm to the eys because this would sting.
The essential oil of sage can cause epileptic strokes if someone suffers from epilepsy.
