Our Active life ointment is an extraordinary flagship product, which has been believed to provide natural pain relief for arthritic-like symptoms. The unique formula was developed after several years of experimentation, with benefits being refined and enhanced throughout hundreds of individual tests. Active Life Ointment is a completely natural product that is said to provide special herbal nourishment to joints, bones, muscles and the skin, possibly enabling better flexibility and mobility.

This product comes with a FULL MONEY BACK GUARANTEE if not delighted with the results.

Directions: The key to proper application of Active Life is to massage a small quantity of the ointment into the problem area up to four times per day, reducing this to once per day as the pain reduces and mobility increases. Typically, significant results are noticeable after less than three weeks of use: evidence of which is corroborated by numerous testimonials.

Customer Testimonial:
I started using Active Life Cream about three months ago. Within three weeks the residual pain had totally disappeared and soon after I stopped using my walking stick. For the first time in years I am now able to descend the stairs facing forwards rather than backwards. But more importantly I have now stopped taking prescribed painkillers. I can now sleep without a pillow between my knees and the everlasting constipation, caused by the prescribed drugs has gone completely. At the age of 68 and after years of severe pain, sleep loss and physical restrictions caused by severe arthritis, I have more freedom and mobility than I believed possible. With sincere thanks. - B. Rawling Churwell, Leeds.

Our refined avocado oil is extracted from the flesh of the avocado fruit which consists of up to 30% pure oil. Avocado still carries its nickname 'alligator pear' as the avocado tree was first found growing in the South American swamp lands. It was an important food source and was used as a medicine as well as an aphrodisiac for the Aztec civilization.

Recent research in the USA has revealed that avocado oil not only smoothes the surface of the skin but can also penetrate its upper layers absorbing by its vital vitamins, monounsaturated fats and EFAs below the skin to help delay degeneration keeping skin looking youthful. Avocado oil would therefore be an excellent ingredient for face creams, lotions and helping to smooth out mature and dry skin.

It can also be used in after-shave balms and cream. As the oil absorbs very quickly into the skin it would be excellent for dry and damaged skin, in sun care lotions and sun creams; the sterols within the oil have also been shown to be effective as an ingredient for sun-screen lotions and creams and it is considered one of the best oils for blocking harmful UV rays.

Our avocado oil is light in colour and has no odour, meaning it can be applied to the face as an intensive facial beauty oil. Avocado oil is a mild, nourishing, semi-fatty oil which is rich in vitamins and can be used as an additive to other base oils at up to 20% dilution.

Avena is both a wholesale and retail carrier oil suppliers and have a high turnover of oils ensuring great quality and fresh products.

Borage oil is also known as starflower oil and is derived from the seeds of the borage plant, a large plant with blue, star-shaped flowers found throughout Europe and North Africa and naturalised to North America.

Our borage oil contains a high amount (30%) of gamma linoleic acid (GLA), a fatty acid that the body converts to a hormone-like substance called prostaglandin E1 (PGE1), which has anti-inflammatory properties.

It may also improve mood in menopausal depression.

Our borage oil can be added to other carrier oils at a 10-15% dilution to give blends a boost. It can also be used undiluted as an intensive night treatment for the face or neck, for restoring skin smoothness and flexibility; it may also help to reduce trans-epidermal water loss by restoring skin smoothness and flexibility.

Celery essential oil comes from the same family as carrot, parsley and fennel etc. The oil is produced by steam distillation of the seeds and is used primarily for flavouring of foods and trace amounts are also used in fine perfumes.

Celery essential oil is also a traditional remedy for a nervous stomach. Prior to the Middle Ages, a wild form of celery referred to as selinon, or smallage, was used as a diuretic and a carminative which is a treatment to reduce intestinal gas.

A study has shown that celery is also mildly tranquillizing and may be helpful in relieving arthritic pain, whilst other research suggests that celery seed contains other compounds that stop the carcinogenic effect of environmental toxins in the liver.

Can be used directly in the bath (4 - 6 drops) or in an oil burner. Therapeutic properties: anti rheumatic, antiseptic (urinary), antispasmodic, aperitif, depurative, digestive diuretic, sedative (nervous), stimulant (uterine), stomachic, tonic (digestive).

Our infused Comfrey oil is derived from one of nature's greatest medicinal herbs and has been used since about 400 B.C. Throughout the ages, comfrey has acquired an unrivalled reputation as a wonderful healing herb. Greeks and Romans used comfrey to stop heavy bleeding, treat bronchial problems, and heal wounds and broken bones.

The name comfrey derives from the Latin 'conferre', meaning bring together or grow together. In Medieval times, comfrey's reputation for knitting broken bones flourished and it was commonly referred to as ‘knitbone’ and often called the heal-all herb.

Our infused comfrey oil takes advantage of these wonderful properties, proven over the centuries. We believe that our comfrey oil is an amazing all round healer that may help aid rapid healing for a vast array of skin injuries, broken bones and bone fractures.

Comfrey's most important ingredient is the substance allantoin. Allantoin is believed to be a cell proliferator, able to strengthen skin tissue, promoting the growth and multiplication of cells and thus speeding healing. This product is said to act as a wonderful bonesetter, creating a protective casing around joints, potentially assisting healing, encouraging new skin growth and rapidly improving fractures (e.g. fingers, toes, hands, ribs).

To use, apply directly to the affected area by massaging into the skin. For more serious conditions users may find it beneficial to soak a bandage or poultice in comfrey oil and to strap it the injured area. Do not use comfrey for deep cuts or lacerations. All dressings should be changed at least once per day. Comfrey oil can also be added to a wide range of aromatherapy products and makes a wonderful ointment.© Please do not copy text.
