Tsoree’ ~ A Gentle Healing Balm for Aches and Pains

Leave a comment


Last week I was given two challenges. While they may have seemed as totally being unrelated, somehow they came together.

The first challenge was from a customer of my tea and spice business who wanted to know what he could do with his excess peppers. I told him that he wasn’t alone as we also have our own abundant hot pepper crop.  I began sharing with him some culinary options from drying the peppers and how to make spiced vinegar’s and hot sauces. THEN I told him that he could make “healing balms”. As I explained the ancient process, and how to incorporate our modern day essential oils, we both knew that sticking with the culinary side was a much better option for him.

The second challenge was from a friend who is need of something to help her husband’s pain. After asking a few questions it was determined that alternating between hot and cool compresses could possibly help but I also felt that “cool and warm” healing ointments may possibly be beneficial. I packaged a bottle of my “RELIEF”, an essential oil blend using the ancient formula of Tei Fu, and sent it to her. As I scoured my herbal books for other helpful ideas I knew that I should make use of both the pepper harvest and the need of a pain remedy for my friend. I’m calling it Tsoree’, which is the Hebrew word for “balm”. I made a lot of it, so if you, or someone you know would like to try a jar or a tester I will be happy to send one to you.

 Go to my Facebook page and “Like” Apothecary Mama and I will send out Tsoree’ to the first five people who respond “Pink Me ~ Pick Me!”.

My RELIEF blend has become wildly popular as well as being popular among my husband’s co-worker’s at the machine shop where he works. RELIEF contains a few cooling essential oils such as camphor and mint as well as lavender. I currently blend it in fractionated coconut oil but am considering adding beeswax or coconut oil to make it into a balm since I’ve found out through the years that not everyone likes “oil”. You can find “Relief” on my website


Look for our Apothecary Mama teaching on Biblical Balm and Hebrew Word picture later this week.
