Sweet Birch Magnesium Bath Flakes contain 47.3% Magnesium Chloride Hexahydrate.
Gotu Kola Healing Balm:
Gotu Kola: Modern herbalists recognize this plant for its strong wound-healing abilities, since it increases the level of antioxidants in newly formed tissue.

Calendula: The anti-inflammatory activity of Calendula officinalis, especially in the treatment of skin disorders has been demonstrated is a study of radiation-induced dermatitis for the treatment of breast cancer. A 2001 study in France compared topical Calendula officinalis with the topical drug Trolamine and found that those subjects receiving the Calendula officinalis ointment experienced less erythema and edema as well as radiation-induced pain.
