This is one of nature s principle based formulas used historically to help promote the relief of sore and tense muscles and joints. Brings heat to areas that need it the most. When used in combination with Complete Tissue & Bone Ointments or Oils, it helps to speed up the process in which the body uptakes the regenerating components of the Complete Tissue & Bone Formula. Special note: The Cayenne Heat Ointment acts as a rubefacient, which draws the blood to the surface of the skin. This is normal for this type of ointment. If the heating effects are too hot, use olive oil to dilute the Cayenne Heat Ointment. Just massage the olive oil in the same area as the Cayenne Heat Massage Oil. Do not attempt to wash the balm off in the shower or with water. Water intensifies heat!
