Herbal Athlete Oil - McDowell's Herbal Treatments


There is a long tradition amongst herbalists in making up their own healing liniments and I am no different.

This recipe was developed in response to the need to drive healing herbs deep into horses hooves while at the same time healing bruising, improving circulation in the area and reducing inflammation.

Of course, this is exactly the same requirement for athletic injury and the preventative maintenance of muscles, ligaments and joints, subject to severe loads or shock.

I would recommend all professional sports people apply this oil daily on all areas subject to such stress and any areas of weakness or past injury. Immediate results will be evident in less inflammation and pain and faster recovery.

More importantly in my mind, longer term benefits will also accrue in terms of better post sporting career health and mobility.

After your sporting career is over you don't want to suffer life-long mobility or pain for the damage done during the few short years as an elite athlete.

You are still going to need a flexible strong and pain free machine to carry you around and simple supportive preparations such as the Athletes Oil can help you achieve this. A further useful hint is to include a tablespoon of ground millet and linseed combination to your breakfast cereal. These two herbs contain specific ingredients to improve the health and flexibility of bones and the elasticity of ligaments.

My standard mix for a Massage Oil includes:- Arnica, Comfrey, Linseed Oil, White Willow, Wintergreen Oil, Dr Bach Flower Rescue Remedy.
