This elegant natural “balm” has multiple uses. Ron Teeguarden created it for his own personal use and for use by his family and pets. He found it to be so consistently and amazingly effective that Dragon Herbs now produces it for everybody. The four ingredients, Sangre de Grado resin, Emu oil, Shea Butter and Lavender Oil, have all been used for millennia to benefit the skin and surface tissues.
Sangre de Grado
Sangre de Grado, literally “Dragon’s Blood,” is the resin from a remarkable Brazilian rainforest tree, Croton lechleri. Sangre de Grado resin (sap) has been used for centuries (probably for thousands of years). The blood-red fluid resin is extremely rich in phytochemicals, including proanthocyanidins, pycnogenol, lignans, phytosterols, phenols, diterpenes and alkaloids. It is used in Brazilian jungle-herbalism primarily on the skin, for anything that can happen to the skin on a typical day’s jaunt through the rainforest. This is certainly one of the miracle plants of the Amazon!
For thousands of years emus have provided the Aboriginal Australians with food, clothing and oil believed to have special properties. Emu oil is used in skin care and beauty products for the body, skin, nails and hair. It is non-comedogenic (it will not clog pores). It helps to promote skin rejuvenation after or along with exfoliation. Emu oil soothes skin even better than Vitamin E oil. Emu oil is a 100% natural moisturizer.
Shea Butter and Lavender Oil
Shea Butter is the oil derived from the Shea Tree (traditionally known as the Karite Tree, literally the Tree of Life. This oil is a natural source of Vitamin A and is a wonderful moisturizer with exceptional rejuvenating benefits for the skin. Shea Butter contains a component fraction known as the “healing fraction.” West African Shea Butter is a superbly rich source of this component fraction. Lavender Oil is one of the most beneficial topical oils. It is soothing, calming, and benefits the skin in many ways, plus it provides one of the world’s great fragrances. We use premium grade Lavender Oil.
These incredible agents each have profound benefits, and when combined into a balm, the resulting product can be virtually astounding. Miracle Balm can be used to help reduce the appearance of bruises and stretch marks, to reduce the appearance of scarring, to soften dry cuticles and to promote healthy-looking nails. It may also be used to rejuvenate chapped lips and everyday dry skin and to improve the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and dry hair. Dragon Herbs uses the finest quality emu oil, 100% pure Brazilian Sangre de Grado sap and Grade A Shea Butter and Lavender Oil to make Miracle Balm. Dragon Herbs uses no preservatives or additives of any sort in the making of Miracle Balm. Miracle Balm is non-toxic. It is suitable for application to any part of the body except the eyes. Miracle Balm is gentle enough to use around or inside the mouth, nose or other sensitive tissues.
