Our Mahanarayan cream is made from the pure Mahanarayan oil, but also contains organic Shea Butter, Rosemary, Sweet Birch, Black Pepper & Geranium oils.
We found it highly effective in relieving pain on tired & overworked muscles and age related aches & pains . The oil was originally recommended to me by my yoga teacher to relieve wrist & arm pain which sadly goes hand in hand with handmaking skin care products every day, however I found the oil too 'fragrant' for my liking and turned it into a cream instead. I'm so glad to report I'm free of aches and the cream is also great when I've pushed myself too hard on the yoga mat.
Use it as a general moisturiser on the painful areas (arms, wrists, knees, necks etc). Apply as often as needed to the affected area and massage gently until fully absorbed. There is no need to wash your hands afterwards.
Please consult a medical professional if your discomfort persists or if you are taking prescribed medication.
