Triple crown of inflammation reduction!
Trauma oil is the triple crown of infused oils. This oil is an amazing infusion of Arnica, Calendula and St. John’s Wort, and these herbs are indicated for inflammation.
To make your infusion, you will need:
A large Mason jar
Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Organic St. John’s Wort
Take equal amounts of each of the herbs (your total should be 4oz), and pour 2 pints of the EVOO over all of the herbs. Seal the jar, and put it in a sunny window for three to six weeks. Shake the jar daily. The color of the oil will deepen as the constituents of the herbs are drawn into the EVOO.
After the three to six weeks (When I make my infusions, I use the six week time period), strain the herbs into a clean jar using cheesecloth and a fine mesh sieve. You may find the finer parts of the herbs left in your infusion. That is okay! It’s organic!
You oil can be used on areas of the body that are sore, inflamed or even bruised. Addition healing can come from adding essential oils such as Lavender, Helichrysum or Carrot Seed.
