The oldest living plant on earth! AKA Chaparral or Grease-wood. Traditionally used topically for inflammation, sciatica, arthritis, varicose veins, circulation, as an antibacterial, and an anti viral for cold sores. Keep a jar by the bed for sore muscles and neck pain. Avoid face. Smells like the desert in the rain. Creosote is often used for long term chronic pain whereas comfrey salve is better for injuries.
