Bees Ease

When it Hurts, this Works

100% Natural: 100% New Zealand Made.

Bees Ease is a unique formulation. Containing 3 key Essential Oils.

All oils used in this product are certified, to ensure they are of the highest quality, to provide maximum benefit and relief.

Black Pepper Oil (Piper Nigrum); with an almost identical molecular structure as morphia, black pepper Oil is a powerful natural pain killer, muscle relaxant & antispasmodic (good for cramp). Let’s be honest, when we are in pain our first concern is to GET RID OF IT, but when we are in pain our muscles contract and tighten, putting extra pressure on an already inflamed area. Black Pepper Oil will ease the pain and relax the muscular tension, preventing muscular spasms (cramp)

German Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla); Natures finest anti-inflammatory, German Chamomile breaks down excess acids and fluids that accumulate around inflamed joints, injuries or over taxed muscles. German Chamomile reduces inflammation, swelling and stiffness.

Rosemary Oil (Rosmarinus officinalis); stimulates circulation to flush out accumulated toxins but more important, bring in extra oxygen. More oxygen the faster the healing and better performance from your muscles supporting the area.

Bees Ease also contain 2 specifically chosen carrier oils.

Sweet Almond Oil ( Prunus) amygdalus dulcis); high in magnesium, essential for healthy muscle function, stimulates the body’s production of synovial fluid, which lubricates and cushion your joints.

Cold Pressed Rice Bran Extract High in naturally produced vitamin E (natures, finest healer). Rich in anti-oxidants to repair and the cellular level.

Additional Info

These beautifully handcrafted copper water bottles are more than just a bottle. Copper is a long lasting natural material and can be recycled continuously without damaging the integrity of the product.

Drinking water out of copper vessels dates back thousands of years. In the Ayurveda philosophy, it is thought that drinking water stored in copper has the ability to balance all three doshas in three body: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. When water is stored in a copper vessel overnight or for eight hours, a very small amount of copper ions gets dissolved into the water. This process is called Oligodynamic effect which has the ability to destroy a wide range of harmful microbes, fungi etc. Yogis in India have known of these beneficial properties and have enjoyed water the holistic way for many centuries. Copper cannot be produced within the body and needs to be sourced from external sources. Drinking copper infused water (aka "Tamra Jal") has many health benefits. Copper is naturally anti-bacterial, acts as an effective anti-oxidant, improves immunity, supports good health, prevents aging, eliminates toxins and free radicals, and stimulates the brain.

Features:

  • Designed to age.
  • Recyclable materials.
  • Cap is made to be screwed on and is provided with a silicone washer to make it leak proof. 

Our copper bottles  will only work with pure water. Do not use acidic and flavoured water.
