Home / Using raw

When should I use raw HEAT?  We recommend applying raw HEAT prior to your daily activity, exercise or therapy to help warm up your muscles.  Raw HEAT will provide increased range of motion, improved performance and flexibility. The warming effects are also excellent in helping relieve the painful symptoms of Osteo and Rheumatoid Arthritis

What makes raw HEAT warm?  It's one of our select essential oils - Cassia Oil. Cassia Oil produces a strong local stimulant effect, which increases the blood flow to the area and aids in healing. So don’t be surprised if your skin becomes red (similar to using a heating pad) where you applied it. This redness is the cassia oil working.  Some people are more sensitive than others and we recommend testing a small amount first and see how hot it is and how sensitive your skin is to raw HEAT.  

Cassia Oil has been a "go to" natural remedy for hundreds of years to treat arthritis, general aches and pains. Finally, it also provides a boost to your mood and energizes the senses.

When should I use raw ICE?  We recommend applying raw ICE after activities, exercise or medical treatment.  An effective remedy to sooth sore joints and muscles, raw ICE is also great to use in conjunction with a recovery program for those whom have recently sustained an injury.  The cooling effects will quickly take away the stress and strain from your day allowing you freedom of movement that a bag of ice simply cannot offer.

What makes raw ICE cool?  It's another one of our select essential oils - Peppermint Oil. Peppermint oil is a cross between winter mint and spearmint. It is believed to be one of the world’s oldest medicines, providing many benefits.  Peppermint Oil is loaded with many vitamins and minerals that can calm and soothe you. 

How to use raw: Shake well before each application. Use raw HEAT before and raw ICE after activity or exercise. Apply a liberal amount of gel directly to the skin over the affected area.  Massage raw HEAT into the affected area until absorbed into the skin.  Be sure to wash your hands after application and please follow all instructions on ingredient panel.
