Whether you Knit, Crochet, Weave, Spin, Paint or make Pottery. There is a time of the day when your hands get achy and you feel as though you’ve lost your sense of time working your craft.

Rose Comfrey Ointment

Sadhu Rose, helping me with a big knit project!

It’s true, time flies when you’re having fun!

Now you’re racing against the clock wanting to finish a project. Knowing you won’t have the same amount of time tomorrow as you have today.
 
Let’s be honest, when we are busy making and creating, all we want is to be able to do so uninterrupted for as long as possible.
 
So, overworked hands get achy, tired and wane. And that my friends, is why I made started making my Comfrey ointments in the first place. With my mum’s arthritis and my own RSI (repetitive strain injury), I wanted relief.
 
I dread the aches, especially when they get between me and whatever craft I happen to be working on.

The Birth of a new Floral Rose Scented Ointment

Sadhu Rose, Comfrey Ointment

When, a crafty friend, Juanita Tortilla, asked for a rose scented comfrey ointment rather than my walk in the woods version: Wayfarers Magic. Who was I to disagree?

 And hence, Sadhu Rose was born, and the name kindly thought up by another dear friend. Where would we be without crafty creative friends ;-)

So what’s the difference between the regular Comfrey Ointment and Sadhu Rose?

 One of the biggest questions I get at the markets is what’s the difference between the two ointments?
 
The only difference is in the Essential oils which do have their own set of benefits:
 
Wayfarers Magic: Rosemary, Lavender, Cedar, Bergamot, Clary Sage and Juniper.
 
Making it more suited to provide relief for inflammation, swelling, cuts, and burns due to the antispasmodic, pain relieving, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiseptic qualities.
 
Sadhu Rose has: Rose, Rose Geranium, Lavender and Palma Rosa.

Big heart, worn dyed worked hands…

Which is great for the skin as it softens, soothes and rejuvenates.  And the smell is good for the heart!

 Both have the benefits of herbs in the ointments of which the main herb is Comfrey. And the extra benefits of beeswax, organic Shea and Cocoa butter.
 If you are looking for relief for inflammation: muscle ache or arthritis, tennis elbow, RSI, burns then Wayfarers Magic is the go to Ointment.
 
For, creative hands and tired muscles: Sadhu Rose is the one for you. hits floral scent it’ll keep those hands weaving their magic longer and farther.
 
Now if only there were a solution for the interruptions from the rest of the world….
