Let's Talk about Blessed Creek's amazing and effective Heel Stick. This convenient heel moisturizer contains infused oils of Plantain and Comfrey, Spilanthes, Pine, Balm of Gilead, Hemp, and Beeswax. Plantain is a local wild plant that is beyond supportive in healing any skin afflictions, dry cracked skin included. Comfrey is a superstar in curing (and I don’t use that word lightly) skin ailments and has been used for centuries for the support of broken bones, sprained tendons, and torn ligaments. Caution do NOT use Comfrey on deep wounds as it heals so fast from the top in where you need deep wounds and surgeries to heal from the inside out. Once the healing process has begun and is close to the surface feel free to use it at will. Topically, Spilanthes is used as an antiseptic, antibacterial and antifungal. Internally it’s a wonder herb and one worth getting to know but we are talking topically here. Topically, pine is used to address skin infections and to lessen joint inflammation in arthritic conditions. Little Known to the general public, Cottonwood bud, or Balm of Gilead is harvested in the late winter or early spring, and as far as topical applications, it quickly clears up skin infections or irritations, such as eczema, and psoriasis, and even eliminates the appearance of scars and blemishes. For insect bites, they can be rubbed on the affected area for rapid healing and pain relief. I have taken those principles and used them in the heel Stick. Hemp, well we all know what that’s used for. It puts the formula on steroids. And... Local beeswax to hold it all together. I package the Heel stick in a screw-up container... It helps keep your hands cleaner, is an easy application and keeps contaminated fingers out of the jar.
