Kava has the amazing ability, unlike any other relaxing nervine herbs that I know of, to leave you feeling like you’re comfortably lying on the beach without a care in the world


Kava balm could be just what the doctor ordered.

Kava has a very interesting tingly numbing quality, this is also transferred into deep tissues which makes it a perfect topical application for tight muscles, stress, and sports injuries as it relieves tension, pain, inflammation, and muscle spasms. One of the most under-reported benefits of kava root is its anti-inflammatory and analgesic (pain reducing) qualities. While these are mild in comparison to other effects, these might be the most widely needed by the general population. If you suffer from arthritis or have recently had surgery or an injury, kava balm could be just what the doctor ordered.Kava is an incredible relaxant herb that is well suited for deep stress that settles into the musculature of the body. This type of stress may leave your neck muscles clenched or wound tight making it very difficult to relax and let go after an overwhelming and hectic day.

Kava root versus C.B.D oil.

Kava root versus CBD oil - CBD stands for Cannabidiol. While CBD is an essential component of medical marijuana, it is derived directly from the hemp plant, which is a cousin of the marijuana plant. C.B.D oil has a collective effect in the blood where the anti-inflammatory and pain-reducing actions take place, my clients who have used both C.B.D oil and Kava report kava has a faster stronger effect for relieving pain, due to the immediate effect of medicinal kavalactone properties rubbed over the muscles and nerves.

A history of Kava's relationship to Kawakawa

Kava is found and used in all the pacific islands except New Zealand, New Caledonia, and most of the Solomon Islands. Early sailors, described for the western world a ceremonial use of an intoxicating drink prepared from the root of Kava. The beverage first causing a tingling sensation, followed by a relaxed, Sociable state, where fatigue and anxiety are lessened. 
New Zealand's kawakawa plant is sometimes called "Māori kava" and is often confused with the kava plant (Piper methysticum). While the two plants look similar and have similar names, they are different, and related species. Kava is a traditional plant and beverage of the South Pacific. The roots of the plant are used to produce a drink with medicinal, sedative, anaesthetic, euphoriant properties. One source stated: "In New Zealand, where the climate is too cold for kava, the Maori gave the name kawa-kawa to another Piperaceae, M. excelsum, in memory of the kava plants they undoubtedly brought with them and unsuccessfully attempted to cultivate. The Māori word kawa also means "ceremonial protocol", recalling the stylised consumption of the drug typical of Polynesian societies.

Why External application?

External application of Kava Balm. Because the skin is your largest, most absorbent organ, it is the most efficient pathway of transporting herbs and nutrients directly into the bloodstream without the necessity of the rough transit through the digestive tract and liver (liver transit can ultimately reduce the bio-availability of the active ingredients by 80-90%. This method of delivery achieves rapid, maximum absorption of the medicinal compounds in the product. Particularly useful for those who have impaired digestion and absorption e.g the elderly, Irritable bowel syndrome, and liver conditions to name a few.
