Zion CBD salve was created in small batches with love and care by a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, to offer you a helpful product at a fair price. There are eleven ingredients used in the production of your Zion Acupuncture CBD Salve. Outlined here are the keys to these herbs and why Zion CBD chose them specifically for the salve you have purchased. These herbs listed below, combined with the shea butter, coconut oil, and beeswax create the perfect muscle relaxing salve with no pesticides, preservatives, or additives. All ingredients are either organic or pesticide free and independently lab tested for potency, microbial contaminants, pesticides, and residual solvents.
The salve’s base components consist of the following.
- Shea Butter = High concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins make shea butter an ideal cosmetic ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Using shea butter on your body can condition, tone, and soothe your skin. It is also non-comedogenic, which means it does not clog pores.
- Beeswax = Locks in moisture and can help keep the skin firm and plump. The anti-allergenic and anti-inflammatory properties soothe easily irritated skin, making it useful for soothing rosacea and eczema. Beeswax can also act as a layer of protection when applied to the skin.
- Coconut Oil = Contains a high concentration of monolaurin, a fatty acid renowned for its antimicrobial effects. Coconut oil is excellent for reducing inflammation and keeping skin moisturized.
All Chinese herbs used in the Zion Acupuncture CBD Salve are selected from Spring Wind and Mayway herb companies. They are reputable sources and do extensive testing for quality and are pesticide free. Each of these herbs below, while having many uses, were selected for this formula primarily for their tension reducing, blood moving, and anti-inflammatory qualities. They assist with movement of blood, strengthening bones, healing of cracked skin, and inflammation. We focus on the Chinese herb aspects and indications. All the information is from a TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) prospective.
