Clinacanthus Nutans (Sabah Snake Grass)

Snake Grass has been used to reduce inflammation from insect bites, lesions from Herpes Simplex Virus and common allergic symptoms in traditional medicine. In the study, the anti-inflammatory effects and the inhibition of neutrophil responsiveness by Barleria lupulina and Clinacanthus nutans extracts, it concluded that both extracts induced powerful dose-dependent inhibitory effects in edema-induced rats. This was found to be mediated by inhibition of neutrophil responsiveness. (Wanikiat et al. 2008) Another study was done in 2014 (Tu et al.), Chemical Constituents and Bioactivities of Clinacanthus Nutans Aerial Plants, the authors were able to provide data on the inhibition of elastase by 4 sulphur-containing bioactive compounds. Clinamides A-C and 2-cis-entadamide A were isolated and extracts were found to inhibit 68.33% of elastase release from human neutrophils at 10 μg/ml. If you are in an educational mood why not research all the other benefits for non-topical use of Sabah Snake Grass, you might be amazed at what you discover.

Another notable study (Mai et al. 2016), demonstrated the anti-inflammatory activity of flavonoids from extracts of the Sabah Snake Grass. Snake Grass contains many essential minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, iron, magnesium, zinc, copper manganese, nickel, and 17 amino acids which are needed by our bodies. Moreover, it has a rich content of Vitamin C, protein, and dietary fibre.

Super Natural Ingredients

Borneol... is a bicyclic monoterpenoid present in the essential oils of Salvia rosmarinus (Rosmarinus officinalis) and Salvia officinalis. It plays a major role in traditional Chinese medicine. Commonly referred to as moxa, this terpenoid was used in China as early as the 1600's to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, lower anxiety, and fight heart conditions. To this day, researchers continue to learn more about the medical promise that Borneol has to offer. It would be easy to dismiss Borneol's medicinal capabilities as "too good to be true", considering that it can be used to treat multiple different ailments, but research continues to confirm that this terpenoid has powerful healing abilities. Borneol has the unique ability to reduce both pain and inflammation. A study completed in 2013 showed that this terpene produces a significant reduction of nociceptive pain while also displaying anti-inflammatory activity in mice. Unlike other medications used to treat pain and inflammation, Borneol did not impair motor coordination. Another study from 2003 confirmed that Borneol can be used as a topical to numb pain. Results were so promising researchers suggested it could be a more effective topical anaesthetic than popularly-used lidocaine. In addition, a 2004 study found that Borneol has the ability to positively modulate GABA receptors, which work to reduce stress. Borneol possess anticoagulant properties that can reduce the risk of heart ailments. One study in particular shows that it has the potential to prevent rats from having a stroke.

Camphor... is a terpene (an organic compound) a potent and effective element of high quality lotions, Balms, Creams and Ointments. Traditionally it has been used topically to relieve pain, irritation, and itching. It creates numbness of sensory nerve endings of skin, thereby relieving bodily discomfort and inflammation, and preventing skin redness. On our skin it acts as a counter irritant and is therefore used topically to relieve pain and swelling. It helps in relieving the pain and inflammation, which is a symptom of eczema. Also the fragrance of Camphor oil has a calming effect on the mind and when used at night can promote a good night’s sleep as well as repelling insects.

Eucalyptus... Well-researched eucalyptus oil relieves pain and reduces inflammation. It can help to reduce muscle pain, respiratory issues, soreness and swelling. A randomised clinical trial investigated the effects of inhaling Eucalyptus Oil on pain and inflammatory responses after total knee replacement surgery. Patients inhaled the Eucalyptus Oil for 30 minutes during rehabilitation on 3 consecutive days. Then pain, blood pressure and heart rate scores were reported. Researchers found that pain scores on all 3 days, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure levels on the second day were significantly lower. Eucalyptus Oil inhalation can be used as “a nursing intervention for discomfort relief.” So breathe in this balm when you rub it in. On itself it relieves insect bites, relieves skin irritations and is one of the best essential oils for headaches.

Wintergreen oil... Wintergreen has been used as an active ingredient in many topical pain relievers for decades to help ease muscle joint and bone pain.

It can be used as a natural headache remedy. This balm can be applied to the corner of the eyebrows and gently massaged in. Massaged into the skin Wintergreen is great for relieving achy joints from arthritis or rheumatism. It’s also helpful for treating sore muscles and chronic neck and back pain, as well as relieving lumbago. Is this Balm getting a wow yet on the ingredients? Wait till you massage it in!

Menthol... Menthol is an organic compound extracted from the oils of Mentha, a genus of plants in the mint family. Menthol can be used in numerous ways - whether it’s a cooling patch for headaches or a soothing skin lotion to treat overexposure from the sun, itching and inflammation. Along with pain relieving and anti-inflammatory capabilities, Menthol acts as a carminative. It helps relax the intestinal muscles and treat gastrointestinal ailments. Present in this Snake Grass Balm it can be inhaled or applied topically to the skin for benefits along with the other potent elements. Topically Menthol has a long history for its ability and is still popular to be used for relief of minor arthritis pain, backache, muscles or joint pain, severe headache, painful bruises and inflammation.

Peppermint Oil... A very effective natural painkiller and muscle relaxant. It also has cooling, invigorating and antispasmodic properties. Peppermint Oil is especially helpful in alleviating a tension headache, in one clinical trial performing as well as acetaminophen. A study shows that peppermint oil applied topically has pain relief benefits associated with fibromyalgia and myofascial pain syndrome. Researchers found that Peppermint and Eucalyptus Oils may be helpful because they work as topical analgesics. Guess what... they're present in this rare handmade balm.

The Colour Therapy of the Healing Balms

Colour Therapy

Colour Therapy Blue

Blue is the colour of purity and those enjoying it, carry with them a feel of beauty, serenity, calmness, and peace. Blue’s energy is soothing and peaceful. Relaxing tired nerves, alleviating agony and ache we feel from physical stress. Blue has a pacifying influence over our nervous system and gives us relaxation. When using the colour blue, it brings us closer to a spiritual and higher ground. Blue energy’s nature is to connect humans with the Cosmic Universe, from the cellular to the interstellar. The colour is associated with communication and flow on all levels and it is the colour most connected to sky and water. Next to the green’s balancing power, blue is our planet’s most healing colour. It is people’s emotional connection, which aids us on levels of understanding, empathy, creativity, appreciation and acceptance. The colour blue is also associated with relaxed, cool, cleansed, calm, hopeful, protected, trusting, reassuring, and accepting feelings. Blue inspires emotional control, clarity and creativity. Blue colour has a direct positive influence on our autonomic nervous system. We associate blue water with stable and soothing emotions. It is the communication’s flow, the colour calming the nervous system and the unwinding sense of serenity that we can experience when enveloped by the colour blue. The sky and the sea give us the sense that life is an on-going never-ending process.  The blue sky is unique to our planet and connects to our spiritual soul. 

Gazing into a bright blue sky or floating on the waters of the blue ocean, gives us the sense that our possibilities can be boundless, free-wheeling and open. Blue is the colour of spirituality, inner peace, spiritual growth, intuition, and inspiration. Within light’s healing spectrum, blue is used for calming and cooling, both the mental and physical. The ray or blue coloured flame is a premier energy source, presented in the power of intent, cause, direction, centralisation, unity and Divine will. It is through our spiritual sources and shining a light into the darkest corners of our world in order to develop our capacity for compassion. Having the “blues” is a feeling of sadness and depression. This is sometimes associated with SAD (seasonal affective disorder) or the “winter blues”, starting in the fall and continuing into winter season, draining our energy and making people feel weak and moody. When there is too much blue energy, emotional detachment, cold emotions or aloofness can occur. The colour blue is not recommended if depression has already occurred, feeling blocked, or a lack of communication. Blue’s complementing colour is orange. The remedy to “excessive blue” in our lives is balanced by adding orange colour in the manner of orange light, clothes, food or meditation. The colour orange is antidepressant lifting spirits by providing feelings of security, warmth, joy, creativity, fun, humour and independence.  Balancing blue with orange, gives us a sense of stability. It creates a feeling of calmness with a promise of hope. This equilibrium of warm and cool offers an embracing hug.
