Join us as we uncover the rich history of sandalwood, understand the power of heat therapy, and discover how our hot rub can enhance your well-being.

A Timeless Remedy for Healing

For centuries, sandalwood has been revered as a natural healing agent. Its proven calming and therapeutic properties make it a valuable ingredient in traditional medicine and modern wellness practices alike.

Understanding the Benefits of Heat Therapy

Heat therapy has long been recognised for its profound effects on pain relief and relaxation. When applied to specific areas of the body, heat increases blood flow, relaxes muscles, and reduces inflammation. By incorporating heat therapy into your wellness routine, you can find relief from joint and muscle discomfort, promoting a sense of well-being and improved mobility.

A Luxurious Solution for Aches and Pains

The Sandalwood Hot Rub is a luxurious blend of natural ingredients designed to alleviate aches and pains. Formulated with carefully selected complementary active botanicals, this product offers a unique combination of soothing and warming sensations. Its long-lasting effects provide comfort and relief, making it a go-to solution for those seeking a natural alternative.

Wintergreen Oil

While we often discuss the natural therapeutic benefits of Sandalwood oil and its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and relaxant properties we also utilise many other essential oils in our products.  Essential oils that have their own unique properties and when combined with Sandalwood oil can have powerful effects.  Wintergreen is one of these oils.

Botanically known as Gaultheria procumbens, Wintergreen is a low growing herb native to China, north-east North America, and Canada. It produces a flush of edible red berries when it flowers and has several common names including teaberry, checkerberry or boxberry.

Traditionally used to help treat respiratory conditions, Native American Mohawk and Ojibwe tribes would chew the leaves to help increase respiratory capacity, reduce fevers, and fight infections.

Today the leaves are steam distilled to make Wintergreen Oil. The oil contains up to 85-99% Methyl salicylate and is why Wintergreen oil is also known by this name.  Wintergreen is believed to be one of only several plants that supply enough methyl salicylate naturally to form an extract. It is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

The oil emits a sweet, minty, slightly woody aroma and although smells minty is not a member of the mint family.

Wintergreen has strong analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. It absorbs easily into the skin and is reputed to promote blood circulation, calm inflammation, ease muscle and joint pain, soothe headaches and promote easier breathing. It also has culinary applications and can be used as an appetite suppressant and as a digestive relief.

When utilised in products like our Hot Rub Cream and Deep Rub Ointment wintergreen behaves as a counterirritant.  Counterirritants work by causing mild local inflammation that then works to reduce inflammation and relieve pain and swelling in deeper tissue. They create a cooling sensation that can feel like warmth to the area it is being used.

Wintergreen is a potent essential oil and should only be used as directed.  It should be avoided by children, if you are pregnant or breast feeding, if you have aspirin related allergies or being treated with anticoagulants.

Targeted Application: How to Use Hot Rub for Optimal Relief

To experience the maximum benefits of this product, proper application is key. We recommend applying a small amount of the hot rub to the affected area and gently massaging it in circular motions. This not only aids in absorption but also promotes relaxation and circulation. Combining self-massage with the natural properties of sandalwood enhances the therapeutic experience, bringing you closer to pain-free living.

So, say goodbye to aches and pains the natural way with the Mount Romance Hot Rub. Explore the power of sandalwood and embrace the relief it brings to your body and mind.
