Castor oil improves tissue permeability and has a regenerating effect.

At what age is it accepted? The child has a runny nose...Can we take it for a year old? Hardly inside. Firstly, all ointments are based on bee products, and secondly, there are ointments that are more gentle - for colds or Free Breathing. When children have a runny nose, they can be used externally on children - lubricate the nose and chest

I bought ointment in Gelendzhik. Before this, I suffered from sinusitis for several years, tried many treatment options - to no avail, the inflammatory process only worsened over time. After using the ointment it became much easier. The inflammation has gone down!!! Now, at the first sign, I use this wonderful remedy. Thanks a lot!!! The jar is running low... I really want to buy it, but delivery is more expensive than the product itself. Do you have sales points in Taganrog? Galina, thank you very much for your feedback! Good health to you! So far in Taganrog we do not have points of sale of monastery ointments.

Beneficial features

In folk medicine, wax is widely used as a basis for the treatment of almost all problems associated with skin diseases, joint pathologies and problems of the musculoskeletal system. Quite often, special recommendations relate to eliminating:

  • psoriasis;
  • eczema;
  • fungal infections;
  • reducing the effects of varicose veins;
  • cleansing the skin and reducing the manifestations of the inflammatory process;
  • seasonal nutrition and protection from adverse weather conditions.

Wax is an excellent remedy for treating joints. Moreover, the form does not matter: you can make applications from heated, plastic pure wax, or you can smear sore spots with ointments and creams based on it.

Wax has long been used to warm the lungs, nose and throat. It is enough to heat it to the desired consistency and fix the plate on the inflamed area. And in the form of an ointment, it will also have a healing effect.

The wax itself contains more than 50 compounds, but the predominance of esters in it makes the substance a strong bactericidal agent.

By adding nothing to the wax, for example, tea tree or eucalyptus oil, you can get a strong antiseptic, and aloe extract or grape seed oil will make the ointment an indispensable nourishing cream.

In general, there are a lot of options for creativity, the main thing is to know the basic principle of making the ointment and its basic recipe. Then you can change the products at least every day.

Using wax as a natural base for ointments has important advantages: its use does not cause any side effects. Unlike synthetic thickeners, wax is absolutely harmless, and its properties have been tested by the thousand-year history of beekeeping.

Before use, you should find out if you have an allergy. This is the only contraindication for using wax. The composition may contain pollen, particles of honey or pieces of propolis. Inert in itself, wax can cause a negative reaction only due to their presence.

  • 1 cup olive, corn or other vegetable oil. It softens the wax and makes it soluble, and also allows you to extend the shelf life of the drug. It is also important that the oil enhances the beneficial properties of the wax by adding vitamins B, D and E to the ointment.
  • 30–40 grams of natural beeswax. It is safer to buy wax at a farmer's market or directly at an apiary.
  • 1 yolk of a boiled chicken egg. Egg yolk is a source of essential substances for restoration processes and the formation of new cells.

Place the yolk in a bowl and mash thoroughly with a fork or use a blender.

Place the oil and wax in an enamel container and place on the stove. Heat over low heat until completely dissolved, but do not bring to a boil. Beeswax melts when heated from 60 to 70 degrees, and when heated to 100 degrees it loses its beneficial properties.
