Ancient Purity presents very specially made Massage Balm known as Wat Pho Temple White Balm or Osothip... An ancient traditional Thai herbal balm made in the Buddhist Temple Wat Pho located in Thailand’s capital Bangkok. The exact way of making the Balm and the composition / ingredients, is kept secret and passed down from generation to generation in the Temple. It is known that the Osothip Balm contains Menthol, Eucalyptus, Peppermint Oil, Mint and many more herbal ingredients. Unless you ordain at the temple you'll never know the other ingredients.

Osothip White balm is soft, it can be used for rubbing the chest during coughing, colds, and for massage after physical exertion. After use, lightness appears (if used for foot massage). The balm does not give a strong cooling effect, rather heats. Apply a small amount of balm to the place of discomfort, an itching or stiff area or bite. If unwell with a cold or flu, apply balm on the chest or back, preferably at bedtime. For headaches, rub a little Balm onto your temples. Remember that a 50 grams jar of this Balm goes a long way. I like to just inhale its uplifting scent in the mornings before heading off to Ancient Purity for another day of promoting, researching, sampling, writing about and talking Health, Freedom & Spirit to anyone listening.

Some of the Known Active Ancient Ingredients

Camphor... A terpene (an organic compound) which is a potent and effective element in 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 pain 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.

Eucalyptus... Well-researched eucalyptus oil relieves pain and reduces inflammation. It can help to reduce muscle pain, 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 pain relief.” So breathe in this balm when you rub it in. This way you’ll experience aromatherapy as well.  On itself it relieves insect bites, relieves skin irritations and is one of the best essential oils for headaches and nasal congestion.

More of the Known Herbs

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 White Buddha 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, 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 balm.

Wat Pho Buddhist Temple... Closing Thoughts

First of all, this is the REAL White Buddhist Temple Balm. Unfortunately, there are many copies on the market. This milder yet powerful balm is widely used to relax tensed muscles and limbs after fitness sessions or work. It is also a must when travelling as rubbing a tiny little bit on a bug bite will stop the itching. Headaches can be reduced by rubbing a little using circular movement on both temples. Thai kick boxers use it to effectively soothe tired and bruised muscles and joints. Count on this family favourite to soothe a variety of ailments like nasal congestion, flatulence and itchiness. Gently rub over the affected area to allow its herbal formulation to soothe muscle aches, and other bodily discomforts quickly and effectively. In a nutshell, for many people, getting a massage is all about pampering and relaxation. But it turns out there’s more going on than just unwinding. There are scientific reasons why massage is good for us, from promoting healing to preventing pain and injury.

“Touch the body. Heal the mind. Calm the spirit.” P.H.

“Massage therapy has been shown to relieve depression, especially in people who have chronic fatigue syndrome; other studies also suggest benefit for other populations.” - Andrew Weil
