Ancient Purity presents very specially made Balm known as Wat Pho Yellow Balm or Osoththip (O-SOD-TIP)... An ancient traditional Thai balm made in the Buddhist Temple Wat Pho located in Thailands 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 Osoththip Balm contains Menthol, Eucalyptus, Peppermint Oil, Methyl Salicylate, Cinnamon, Mint and many more herbal ingredients that unless you ordain at the temple you'll never know.

Osoththip Yellow 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 / pain, an itching area or bite. If unwell with a cold or flu, apply balm on the chest or back, preferably at bedtime. For headaches etc rub a little Balm into your temples. Remember a little of this Balm goes a long way, I like to just inhale it in the mornings before heading off to Ancient Purity for another day of promoting, writing about and talking Health, Freedom and Spirit to anyone listening.

Some of the known Ingredients

Cinnamon Oil... Cinnamon has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, properties. Many of the benefits of Cinnamon bark oil have to do with its ability to dilate blood vessels. Cinnamon bark can help enhance nitric oxide function, which causes increased blood flow and lower levels of inflammation.

Camphor... 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 reliving 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. Alone it relieves insect bites, relieves skin irritations and is one of the best essential oils for headaches.

Some of the known Ingredients

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, 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 in this.
