This really works!

On our cruise stop (8/29), we toured Sitka National Historical Park. Our Tlingit guide showed us a Devils Club plant and explained how the Natives used it to treat arthritis (among other things). Then, while on a walking tour of Sitka, WinterSong had a display and sample out front, so I tried it. It worked within minutes! I was using a prescription with a $20 co-pay that I didn't think was doing any good, so needless to say, I purchased a tin. So far, I love it! I'm recommending it to my friends here at home. Next time I see my Dr., I'll tell her, too.

I just received this on Saturday and started using it on my hands and knee for pain, and it works very well. Thank you.
Devil's Club Triumphs Over Stupid!

'They' say if you ride long enough you will do every stupid thing in 'the book' Took me almost thirty years but I finally backed into my hot pipe AFTER I changed into shorts. I actually smelled the 3"+ diameter circle of burning flesh on my calf b/f I felt it. Ugly. Nasty raw red center. Pain. Sis had given me a tin she brought back from a trip to Alaska that I've used occasionally. Since this was well beyond my usual 'rinse w/cool water till pain stops then ignore it' burn, I coated it with Wintersong's Devil's Club salve. Instantly painfree. Most amazing though, is I don't think I'll have a scar! After a week, it has reduced to abt 2" diameter and the surrounding skin, formerly red raw burn, looks totaly normal! I may be able to wear a dress w/o the 'how did you get that awful scar questions :)

While in Alaska on a cruise I bought Devil's Club-Wildflower Salve for my shoulder needing a replacement from arthritis. I apply it most days. It works so well I haven't needed steroid injections in my shoulder since I've started using it 6 months ago. I actually have better range of motion than I did. Now my husband and a friend both want me to get them some for them.
Nothing works better for painful cracked skin on hands and feet.

I grew up with exzema on hands, enduring frequent cracking and bleeding, and of course "tried everything" including numerous natural salves, home remedies and pharmaceutical products. Fortunately I outgrew the worst of it, but in my recent job as a hospital CNA, washing hands over and over throughout my workday, flare-ups would threaten to send me home, as my hands often approach the cracking/bleeding stage. Fortunately I found a lotion that really works (Shikai borage therapy) for preventing this stage most of the time. But when it comes down to the actual cracking/bleeding the lotion does nothing, and I whip out my Devil's Club Salve. It works overnight, and my hands are better, I can keep working. Recently moved to New Mexico where I wear sandals and walk barefoot all the time and now my feet are cracking (bottoms, toes, heels). When it gets painful I use this salve and again, it works like magic. I grew up in Ketchikan and love all the medicinal plants in this salve, just wish you could make a non-greasy and mineral oil-free lotion using the same formulation.
