Crimp Oil Extra Hot is a variation on standard crimp oil with the addition of copaiba, river birch and cinnamon for added anti-inflammatory properties.
Crimp Oil's strongest oil against pain and inflammation, Extra Hot gives off warmth for a more soothing massage. An enhanced version of Crimp Oil "original", a natural massage rub specially developed for rock climbers recovering from, or keen to prevent, finger injuries, Extra Hot oil quickly kills pain in tendons, joints, and muscles. Containing Copaiba oil, known to have some of the highest levels of beta-caryophyllene (50 %), which has been extensively studied for its ability to modulate the inflammation process, this oil not only soothes pain but also has a stimulating & tonic Cinnamon scent.
For injuries: apply 3 to 4 times a day. Massage it in to the injured area to allow the active ingredients of Crimp Oil penetrate the skin and soft tissues. Apply 5/6 drops per finger. Also make sure you rest the finger well. Shake well before use.
To maintain healthy fingers: apply 1 to 2 times a day, adding 3 drops to each finger and ensure the oil is massaged well into each digit, allowing the active ingredients of Crimp Oil penetrate the skin and soft tissues.
Copaiba - Known to have some of the highest levels of beta-caryophyllene (50 %). Even Helichrysum and Clove essential oils that are praised for their anti-inflammatory compounds have 5 to 12% of the same compound! Beta-caryophyllene has been extensively studied for its ability to modulate the inflammation process
River Birch - Almost similar to Wintergreen, to soothe and/or ease pain in muscles and joints. It is also used to soothe pain due to tendonitis, arthritis and rheumatism
Cinnamon - The essential oil of Cinnamon is reminding the spicy scent of Clove and is an excellent tonic and general stimulant
Helichrysum Italicum EO - anti-inflammatory, anti-bruising and skin renewal
Geranium EO - anti-inflammatory, analgesic and skin renewal
Wintergreen EO - strong pain-killer, ease cramps and muscle spasms
Lavandin Super EO - for relaxing muscles, soothing and calming
Lemon Eucalyptus EO - anti-inflammatory, anti-tendonitis and anti-rheumatism
Peppermint EO - for shock, trauma, pain-killer
Equisetum Arvense extract - its silicon compound promotes tissues and cartilage renewal
Crimp Oil will work its magic against pain and trauma in all soft tissue injuries, although the deeper the problem the less effective it will be.
Crimp Oil is also said to be effective in cases of migraine: rub your temples and forehead with 2 to 3 drops of Crimp Oil (being careful not to touch your eyes) for providing a powerful calming effect.
