Fatty Acids: stearic, oleic, palmitic acid, conjugated linoleic acid. Fat soluble vitamins and antioxidants: A, D E, K2
Research studies have proven, that the level of moisturising from animal fats was far superior to plant-based oils. This is due to fat soluble activators only found in animal fats. Tallow resembles the natural sebum in our skin, ensuring absorption without irritation. The fatty acids, (Omega 3,6,7 and 9) have the ability to easily and deeply penetrate into the skins dermis to replenish lost moisture without clogging the pores and to also prevent transdermal water loss whilst also providing a protective layer. The anti-oxidants and fat-soluble vitamins provide healing and help to repair oxidative damage.
Organic essential oil and Herbal concentrates:
Achillea millefollium; aerial parts
Yarrow or historically know as Wound Healer is a native European plant. This plant is poorly researched and it is the empirical knowledge and historical uses for its ability to staunch bleeding in the battlefields and kitchen gardens that we find our evidence.
Achilles, the Greek God was thought to use yarrow to heal wounds, hence the botanical name.
The Alkaloids, (achilleine) and flavonoids are though responsible to help arrest internal and external bleeding. Combined with the astringents it is reputed to improve venous circulation and tone varicose veins. It is also thought to be highly beneficial for cellulite.
Antispasmodic, staunches bleeding, internally and externally, anti-inflammatory, lowers blood pressure, tones the blood vessels without drying.
Lanolin is secreted by the sheep’s sebaceous glands. This wool wax helps prevent evaporation of water from the skin. It also has antibacterial qualities which help to protect the sheep from fungal/bacterial infections. Lanolin is a similar chemical composition to our skin; it forms an emulsion with water that’s easily absorbed by the skin and this stops the dehydration of the skin. So safe, it’s been used as the most effective nipple balm whilst breastfeeding new born babies.

Pinus pinaster Aiton, bark
Maritime Pine Bark is a native of the Mediterranean region. It was originally used to treat scurvy due to the high Vitamin C content, however the bark has been intensely researched for the rich sources of (OPC’s) which are basically a form of bioflavonoids, predominately oligomeric; proanthocyanins’, a rich source of natural polyphenols.
Traditionally used to treat wounds, dating back to 400BC, this high researched plant is now used to treat disorders of the vascular system, due to the antioxidant and inflammatory properties. A decoction of the bark of maritime pine is considered to be stronger than the needles.

Homoeopathic: Calcarea Fluor 6C. Calcium Fluoride, is contained in the elastic fibres of the skin, blood vessels, connective tissue, bones and teeth. A lack of Calc Fluor creates a relaxed condition. This can lead to a hardening or swelling of the tissues. Used in the treatment of dilated or weakened blood vessels, such as those found in haemorrhoids, varicose veins, hardened arteries and glands. Also considered in uterine displacements, teeth loose in their sockets, sluggish circulation, muscular weakness, and ailments of tendons, ligaments, and fibrous tissue. I have used a low dose 6C for chronic conditions which require gentle stimulation with the least aggravation.

Lemon Myrtle has been an important bush medicine for our Australian indigenous population for thousands of years. Originally used to treat headaches, scientific research on the compound “Citral’ has now discovered its antiseptic, antimicrobial and antifungal properties. Said to be more powerful than Tea Tree.

Note: This formulation has been updated, due to research that confirms animal fats are far superior as a moisturising base for healing salves. At Medicinal Botanix we believe in ethically farmed and organic pasture raised cattle, utilizing ancestral wisdom, whereby, the web of life and the whole ecosystem is sustainably managed without waste or pollution, or cruelty to animals.
The nutritional and energy value of pasture raised, ethically farmed animals is also far superior to factory farmed caged animals fed on genetically modified grains and antibiotics in cruel environments.
