At AlaTerps, two of our most popular and versatile products are our Blessing Balms. Blessing Balms are made from pure, organic ingredients and formulated as topical treatments. They’re formulated by Denise Ginsburg (RN, CHP, PYT), a specialist in integrative medicine, counseling, clinical and herbal medicine, and more. Denise is passionate about sharing her healing talents to help as many people as possible, and that’s why we love working with her to bring Blessing Balms to you.
Blessing Balms are most effective when used daily and may relieve discomfort from skin conditions, pain, inflammation, and more. The combination of AlaTerps full spectrum CBD blend, containing not only CBD but also a legal amount of THC and minor cannabinoids, powers our Blessing Balms. But we don’t stop there. Our premium balms contain specially selected herbs and botanicals to work in combination with and amplify the impact from CBD.
Blessing Balm for Pain
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, between 11% and 40% of U.S. adults suffer from chronic pain. Many sufferers turn to opioids with high dependency risks and negative side-effects for relief. But over the last several years, CBD has entered the conversation. The Arthritis Foundation has released guidance on CBD, and multiple independent studies have yielded interesting findings on CBD and pain.
Many of our customers discovered AlaTerps while searching for relief from chronic pain and inflammation. AlaTerps Blessing Balm for Pain is a smooth, topical balm, with a light lemony scent, for muscle, nerve and joint pain, and inflammation. Like our customers, relief comes in all shapes and sizes. Chronic sufferers from arthritis, nerve damage and joint conditions are oftentimes looking for alternatives to traditional medications.
Our customers include weekend warriors, scrapbookers, athletes, golfers, crossword puzzlers, yogis, knitters, and rodeo riders.
Blessing Balms can be applied before, during and after activities as needed. If you apply heat with it, the goodness soaks in even more. For example, AlaTerps co-founder, Mary Katherine Cabaniss, uses Blessing Balms with an infrared heating pad!
The organic herbs and botanicals hand-selected for our Blessing Balm for Pain offer even more benefits and complement the CBD. We include ingredients with anti-inflammatory properties such as Arnica, Black Cohosh, Cypress, Ginger Root, Lavender, Lemon Balm, Solomon Seal, and MSM. Rose Geranium Oil moisturizes and heals the skin. Read more about each of these ingredients and their healing properties here.
