What is Fractionated Coconut Oil?

Fractionated coconut oil is a form of Coconut oil that has had the long-chain fatty acids removed via hydrolysis and steam distillation. This process makes the oil completely liquid at room temperature, and extends the product's shelf life.

Because Fractionated Coconut Oil is colorless and odorless, it is perfect for blending with essential oils as it preserves and maintains their original fragrance and benefits. This carrier oil is ideal for dry or troubled skin and provides a soothing topical barrier without clogging pores

If you are a martial artist, or play contact sports, you SHOULD keep this Bruise Healing Oil on hand, to treat bruises when they occur.

 

Bruise Healing Oil works by using the herbs and essential oils to stimulate the circulation and flow of Chi in the area of the bruise, removing the stagnant blood from the affected area.

Essential Oils include Arnica Montana, Helichrysum, Frankincense, Lemongrass, Wintergreen and Australian Kunzea.

What causes Bruising?

Bruising, or a contusion is caused by trauma to the soft tissue and skin. Typically in martial arts or contact sports any sort of a fall, hit or strike can cause the tiny blood vessels called capillaries to burst. Blood gets trapped beneath the surface of the skin which causes a bruise.

Some people are more prone to bruising than others and generally the sooner you can heal a bruise the better . Bruising can also be caused by aging, by certain medical conditions and/or medications such as Aspirin, prednisone and others. If you bruise easily or for no apparent reason, you should consult a physician.

How is the Bruise Healing Oil applied?

When a bruise/contusion occurs from an injury or strike, you should immediately use Ice to cool the area and apply compression as soon as possible.

 

When the swelling has stopped, apply the Oil 3-4 times a day and gently massage in to the affected area for 4-5 minutes to stimulate the circulation.

After 3-4 days, the bruising will be much reduced and in many cases gone completely, with no residual yellowing that often occurs if the area is left untreated.

If pain or bruising from the injury does not dissipate or internal bleeding continues, please see your doctor without delay.

What Essential Oils are in the product?

Our Bruise Healing Oil includes 18 traditional Chinese Medicine Herbs heat infused in Fractionated Coconut Oil PLUS a highly concentrated blend of the following six Essential Oils:

Arnica Montana is one of the best homeopathic remedies for bruising and trauma. Some plastic surgeons in fact swear by it for reducing bruising after cosmetic surgery. Also known as wolfsbane, Arnica Montana has been used through the ages for improving blood circulation, allowing oxygen to get to the cells faster, healing bruises, sprains and sports related injuries. Arnica Montana is also believed to offer relief for rheumatism and joint pain.

Arnica's actions may be due to two chemicals called helenalin and dihyrdohelenalin. These chemicals may modify the action of immune cells, kill bacteria, reduce the activity of chemicals and blood cells that cause inflammation

Helichrysum is known as the Everlasting Flower. Helichrysum has been used since ancient Greece for its restorative properties. Helichrysum is a European herb native to France, Italy, and a few neighboring Mediterranean countries. It is a very costly oil and very scarce.

Soothing and calming to the skin, Helichrysum has a wide range of remarkable medicinal properties. 

Helichrysum  helps clear the accumulation of stagnant blood, bruises or blood clots which result from a hemorrhage. Helichrysum actually promotes cell health by encouraging the recycling of dead cells, and stimulates the production of new cells. It is also used as an anti-aging remedy with anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. An amazing plant!

Wintergreen is a tree native to North America and it is believed to have been Native Americans who discovered the use of its oil to eliminate pain in the muscles and joints. Wintergreen is readily absorbed through the skin and the presence of methyl salicylate induces numbness and an anesthetic effect on the nerves there. It also increases circulation of the blood and brings warmth to the area which helps to heal the bruising.

Most of its health benefits are from the methyl salicylate which promotes blood circulation, relieves pain from muscle cramps, joint pain, tendonitis and bone pain. It is also extremely popular with the people suffering from rheumatism, arthritis,and gout.

Tasmanian Kunzea Ambigua or ‘white kunzea’ is from the myrtle family and was used by Australian Aboriginal communities to relieve irritated skin, muscle tightness and pain. It is the organic composition of Kunzea ambigua essential oil that makes it so unique. Certain compounds in Kunzea give it anti-inflammatory properties that are very rare for an essential oil.

 

Kunzea Oil is approved by the TGA (Therapeutic Goods Administration) and has been been proven to relieve muscular aches and pains, relieve joint pain and swelling from mild arthritis.  Kunzea has also been shown to relieve and prevent bruising particularly when combined with Arnica Montana.

Frankincense is the resin harvested from the Boswellia tree on the Arabian peninsula and North Eastern Africa. Frankincense produces special compounds that have been found to have strong anti-inflammatory effects which assist in the healing of bruising. Frankincense has the ability to strengthen skin and improve its tone, elasticity, defense mechanisms against bacteria or blemishes, and appearance as someone ages.

 

Also used in incense and perfumes from biblical times, Frankincense is used as an immune system booster and relieves pain from headaches, cramps, muscular aches and injuries.

Lemongrass has a fragrant lemon aroma and is from the tropical grass family. Lemongrass is used to kill bacteria, reduce body aches and pains and is used in cooking as a digestive aid and flavour. Originating in Southeast Asia, Lemongrass essential oil is distilled from the leaves and woody stalks of the lemongrass plant.

 

Lemongrass contains purifying effects for the skin, making it a favourite ingredient of massage oil. Lemongrass also effective in relieving the pain and discomfort caused by rheumatism. It can be applied topically on both lumbago and sprains and helps in relieving neuralgia
