Comfortably Numb® Balm is the MAXIMUM STRENTH original formulation - in a balm. If you have ever been privileged enough to apply the original - you know this isn't a pain reliever for wimps. There is the infamous strong sensation of cayenne and menthol which goes to work almost immediately to numb the pain away.
You know the drill. When you take organic wildcrafted powerful herbs, and infuse them in organic oils, throw in some natural cooling analgesics, some pain-reducing, numbing & cellular-repairing amazement, throw in some therapeutic-grade essential oils, then top it off with a deep tissue, muscle & joint penetration ingredient, you have a balm that will absolutely knock your socks off.
We guarantee that you will immediately notice that this balm is like nothing you have ever used. The fast pain relief and superior absorption will ease pain, inflammation and stiffness in joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles. This powerful formulation is infused with the highest-quality ingredients which you can pronounce and feel good about using.
Using a circular motion, rub a dime-sized amount of Comfortably Numb® Balm on sore, achy and inflamed areas of body as needed. A little goes a long way - do not over-saturate - there IS cayenne in it, after all. Broken, irritated or heated skin may be more sensitive to the powerful ingredients. Always start slow and can work up to more product if desired.
For external use only. Wash hands thoroughly after use. Avoid contact with eyes (another reason to wash hands after use). Pregnant women should consult their health care professional before use. Keep away from children . Carry on with your life, and do the things you love - without aggravating pain.. ALWAYS DO A PATCH TEST TO CHECK FOR SENSITIVITY. Don't forget this the EXTREME formula - and can be very strong.

Organic Arnica (Arnica Montana): Anti-inflammatory properties for treating and reliving muscle aches, spasms, pulled muscles, rheumatic pain, sprains, bruises and swelling;
Organic Calendula (Calendula officinalis): Effective pain-reliever for sore and inflamed muscles. Prevents and calms muscle spasms;
Wintergreen Oil (Gaultheria procumbens): One of the main ingredienst in COMFORTABLY NUMB, it is most renowned as a pain reliever for muscular or skeletal issues. When added to liniments and topical pain relievers, it helps to ease muscle and/or joint pain;
Pure Menthol Crystals (Mentha arrensis): Menthol is a natural cooling analgesic (pain reliever), produces a numbing effect, increases blood flow to an injury - which results in cellular repair;
Organic Ginger (Zingiber officinale): Powerful anti-inflammatory when applied topically. Ginger and ginger oil can help reduce prostaglandins, which are the compounds associated with pain.
Organic Cayenne (Capsicum annuum): Cayenne is famous for reducing many types of pain. Capsaicin, a major constituent of cayenne peppers, blocks substance P - a neurotransmitter that relays information and result in what we call pain - and therefore reduces pain and tenderness;
Organic Turmeric (Curcuma longa): Anti-inflammatory properties make it particularly effective for relieving arthritis pain - found to be just as effective for relieving arthritis pain and as effective as cortisone in treating acute inflammation.
Chamomile: The key to chamomile's effectiveness lies in the volatile oils found in its flowers which penetrate below the skin's surface into the deeper skin layers. Its anti-inflammatory properties is useful for arthritis, injuries, and back pain.
Lavender: Topical application of lavender calms sore and inflamed areas and increases cell growth. Lavender has the ability to treat sore and tense muscles, rheumatism, sprains and backache.
Eucalyptus: Originally referred to as “eucalyptol” by the scientific community, the health benefits of eucalyptus oil come from a chemical now known as cineole — an organic compound shown to hold astounding, widespread medicinal effects, including everything from reducing inflammation and pain to killing leukemia cells!
Geranium: Geranium oil is found to be effective in mitigating pain, especially pain resulting from nerve damage as in peripheral neuropathy caused by diabetes, or in autoimmune conditions like multiple sclerosis and lupus. Nerve compression also causes sharp, unbearable pain at times, as does shingles caused by herpes virus and the post-herpetic neuralgia that follows. Since nerve pain is usually chronic, natural remedies are a better alternative to painkiller drugs that come with many side effects.The astringent effect of Geranium oil draws out excess fluid from the skin and the muscle tissue, tightening and toning muscle tone.
DMSO (Dimethyl sulfoxide): An organic substance from pine bark. Rubbed into the skin - the most common method of DMSO treatment - it is quickly absorbed into the deeper tissues. When combined with other substances - such as the other ingredients in COMFORTABLY NUMB, DMSO efficiently delivers the therapeutic ingredients into the underlying area where they are needed.
Jojoba Oil: Unlike other carrier oils, jojoba oil does not oxidize or turn rancid. It has an indefinite shelf life and helps extend the shelf life of essential oil formulations. Also contains beeswax.
