Comfortably Numb® PLUS Balm
Holy Smokes! This little jar packs a punch.
Dream with me. Combine the pain-relieving power of Comfortably Numb®...add the healing qualities of Bone, Tissue & Cartilage...NOW throw in:
- Magnesium for muscle relaxing,
- Willow Bark as nature's aspirin
- Angelica Root for nerve & joint damage
- Boswellia as a cartilage repairer
- St. John's Wort to decrease inflammation.
Wake me up and call it Tuesday! This sounds like a pain relieving, muscle relaxing and healing balm that is downright dreamy - not necessarily dreamy like Davy Jones - yet equally swoonable.
Directions for Use
Directions for Use
Using a circular motion, rub a dime-sized amount of Comfortably Numb® PLUS Balm on sore, achy and inflamed areas of body as needed. A little goes a long way - do not over-saturate - there IS cayenne in it, after all. Broken, irritated or heated skin may be more sensitive to the powerful ingredients.
Can be applied up to three times a day for three days, and then tapered off as you feel the relief accumulating.
For external use only. Wash hands thoroughly after use. Avoid contact with eyes (trust us on this). Pregnant women should consult their health care professional before use. Keep away from children and pets. Do a patch test to determine sensitivities or reactions to ingredients in Comfortably Numb® PLUS Balm. Carry on with your life, and do the things you love - without aggravating pain.

Benefits of Ingredients
Benefits of Ingredients
Organic Arnica (Arnica Montana): Anti-inflammatory properties for treating and reliving muscle aches, spasms, pulled muscles, rheumatic pain, sprains, bruises and swelling;
Organic Calendula (Calendula officinalis): Effective pain-reliever for sore and inflamed muscles. Prevents and calms muscle spasms;
Wintergreen Oil (Gaultheria procumbens): One of the main ingredients in COMFORTABLY NUMB, it is most renowned as a pain reliever for muscular or skeletal issues. When added to liniments and topical pain relievers, it helps to ease muscle and/or joint pain;
Pure Menthol Crystals (Mentha arrensis): Menthol is a natural cooling analgesic (pain reliever), produces a numbing effect, increases blood flow to an injury - which results in cellular repair;
Organic Ginger (Zingiber officinale): Powerful anti-inflammatory when applied topically. Ginger and ginger oil can help reduce prostaglandins, which are the compounds associated with pain.
Organic Cayenne (Capsicum annuum): Cayenne is famous for reducing many types of pain. Capsaicin, a major constituent of cayenne peppers, blocks substance P - a neurotransmitter that relays information and result in what we call pain - and therefore reduces pain and tenderness;
Organic Mullein leaves are also mucilaginous in action both internally and externally but have the added benefit of aiding the endocrine system in balancing hormones - which are the messaging system of the body. It is an anti-inflammatory and high in trace minerals.
Organic Gravel Root - also called Queen of the Meadow for its ability to breakdown unwanted buildup such as stones and arthritic deposits. This powerful blood purifier is also used to rebuild damaged nerves - both internally and externally.
Organic Skullcap is an herb used to repair nerve damage - especially on the surface like abrasions known as "road rash" or any other minor to moderate skin damage.
Organic White Oak Bark has been used as an astringent, toning and tightening loose and swollen tissue - really nice for such things as minor sunburn. The tannic acid is very beneficial for healing and purifies the blood.
Organic Wormwood is an herb with biblical ties - it is the Bitter Root. As such it is an antiseptic and will aid healing by keeping the acid/alkaline levels proper for healing and rebuilding of sound tissue.
Organic Comfrey Root is applied to the skin for ulcers, wounds, joint inflammation, bruises, rheumatoid arthritis, swollen veins (phlebitis), gout, and fractures.
Organic Marshmallow Root is used for pain and swelling (inflammation) of the mucous membranes
Organic Black Walnut Hull has anti-fungal and antibacterial activity as well as astringent effect that help in treating various skin diseases.
Organic Turmeric (Curcuma longa): Anti-inflammatory properties make it particularly effective for relieving arthritis pain - found to be just as effective for relieving arthritis pain and as effective as cortisone in treating acute inflammation.
Chamomile: The key to chamomile's effectiveness lies in the volatile oils found in its flowers which penetrate below the skin's surface into the deeper skin layers. Its anti-inflammatory properties is useful for arthritis, injuries, and back pain.
Lavender: Topical application of lavender calms sore and inflamed areas and increases cell growth. Lavender has the ability to treat sore and tense muscles, rheumatism, sprains and backache.
Eucalyptus: Originally referred to as “eucalyptol” by the scientific community, the health benefits of eucalyptus oil come from a chemical now known as cineole — an organic compound shown to hold astounding, widespread medicinal effects, including everything from reducing inflammation and pain to killing leukemia cells!
Geranium: Geranium oil is found to be effective in mitigating pain, especially pain resulting from nerve damage as in peripheral neuropathy caused by diabetes, or in autoimmune conditions like multiple sclerosis and lupus. Nerve compression also causes sharp, unbearable pain at times, as does shingles caused by herpes virus and the post-herpetic neuralgia that follows. Since nerve pain is usually chronic, natural remedies are a better alternative to painkiller drugs that come with many side effects. The astringent effect of Geranium oil draws out excess fluid from the skin and the muscle tissue, tightening and toning muscle tone.
DMSO (Dimethyl sulfoxide): An organic substance from pine bark. Rubbed into the skin - the most common method of DMSO treatment - it is quickly absorbed into the deeper tissues. When combined with other substances - such as the other ingredients in COMFORTABLY NUMB, DMSO efficiently delivers the therapeutic ingredients into the underlying area where they are needed.
Jojoba Oil: Unlike other carrier oils, jojoba oil does not oxidize or turn rancid. It has an indefinite shelf life and helps extend the shelf life of essential oil formulations.
Hemp Seed Oil: Applied topically, hemp oil can reduce inflammation and skin conditions, primarily because of its essential polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), including omega-3s and omega-6s.
Other ingredients: Vitamin E; Frankincense, Copaiba & Cypress therapeutic-grade essential essential oils.

Thousands of customers are with us. Mr. Benjamin Gay has nothing on us.
Is St. John's Wort truly as virtuous as its name?
FUN HISTORICAL FACT: St. John's Wort owes its name to the fact that it flowers at the time of the summer solstice on or around St. John's Day on June 24th.
St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum) has been intensively investigated for its antidepressive activity, but dermatological applications also have a long tradition. Topical St. John's Wort preparations such as our Comfortably Numb® PLUS formulations can be used for the treatment of minor wounds and burns, sunburns, abrasions, bruises, contusions, ulcers, myalgia, and many others.
Plus...we don't want to answer to the big guy upstairs why we DIDN'T use John's herb.
