Bone + Joint Balm


Bone & Joint Balm is an oil and wax-based topical medication of datura inoxia, wormwood, and wild harvested poplar buds for the temporary relief of pain and inflammation, especially effecting the bones and joints. This is a reformulation of our Datura Ointment that now includes Datura (datura inoxia), Wormwood (artemisia absinthium), and Poplar Bud (populus balsamifera). Datura has always been our best herbal salve for severe bone & joint pain and bone-deep pain. The addition of wormwood amplifies these properties. Although very similar in its medicinal uses to the Wormwood Balm, Bone & Joint Balm offers even stronger pain relief and help sleeping through severe pain. Datura is a potent pain reliever but it is also a potent sedative. Datura is not safe for broken skin or open wounds. Use the Poplar Bud or Wormwood Balms if you need non-drowsy pain relief and wound care.

Medicinal Uses

Datura has been in use for the external relief of pain and inflammation by indigenous peoples in North, Central, and South America with documented evidence of its medicinal and ritual use dating to the late prehistoric period. Datura is also mentioned in Sanskrit and Tamil medical texts from India dating back to the 2nd 4th centuries as well as in Arabic medical texts as early at the 9th century. Datura’s traditional medicinal uses were scientifically validated in the 1800s when tropane alkaloids from nightshade plants were isolated and studied.
