We have been living beyond the sidewalks for over 18 years. Our little â€˜Aâ€™ frame cabin sits on Tierra Sol Farm, near the west branch of the Feather River, in the Sierra foothills. Ten years ago, on a Motherâ€™s Day morning, I scooped up some runaway ducklings and slipped and fell. In one swift move, I dislocated my ankle, shattered 3â€ of leg bone, shredded my tendons, and severed the nerves! The Doctor was sure Iâ€™d have to use a cane the rest of my life and all he could suggest for the pain and swelling was cortisone shots. This seemed pretty bleak, but I wasnâ€™t willing to settled for it, besides I have 30 acres to attend to! I have been making salves for the family for years, from the herbs grown in our garden. So I started researching various herbs that would help heal my injuries. While formulating the cream I was introduced to hemp root. The chief element in restorative creams of early pharmacopoeia was hemp, the active ingredient essential to oils prescribed in both the Aramaic and Hebrew versions of the Old Testament. Hemp root, myrrh, and olive oil preparations were applied topically to alleviate swelling and joint pain, or as salves for burns. So I added it to the batch, making a 9 herb formula. After using the cream, The bruising was gone, The swelling was gone, the circulation was back, I gained full movement of my foot and ankle, and no more pain. I was so excited that I shared the cream with family and friends. The results were fantastic. Itâ€™s works on sore muscles, burns, eczema, arthritis, and even insect bites too. Everyone has encouraged me to put it on the market. So now I am working with our community collegeâ€™s small business development center to launch our new venture.
