There is a slew of products currently on the market advertising that they help with ‘pain this’ or ‘anti-inflammatory that’, but I am here to tell you the proof is in the ingredients with Oasis. Turmeric, Barberry, and Quercetin are blended together perfectly to offer the relief your body needs through known anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant therapeutic actions while also reducing redness and that annoying itchy sensation. The beautiful blend of base oils is what really holds this salve together with a wide array of Fatty Acids, including alpha-linolenic acid, which acts as a neuroprotectant.
I love this product because it encourages the Herbalists’ view and understanding that less is actually more. We can see this by the simple blend of natural ingredients that make up Oasis. ZAO Organics understands the process of natural synergy and has formulated a beautifully working product that penetrates deep into the skin, providing each dermal layer with nourishment and relief.
I highly recommend this product to anyone experiencing eczema, psoriasis, tinea, joint pain, rheumatoid arthritis, varicose veins, and general issues involving pain and inflammation.
