Spiders! Piles! We've RELIEF for You!

Hemorrhoids and varicosities are not, in general, fun to talk about or to experience.  Yet, hemorrhoids and varicosities are a common occurrence for many folks, so we might as well take the best care that we can of our bodies and ourselves when they are a bit out of balance and stressed.  One of the best environments for healing to take place is one of honest humor, so that is why our Spritz has such a silly name – our body feels like it is crawling with spiders and we’ve got a case of the piles!  Honest and funny all at once or at least a slightly more interesting way to talk about uncomfortable condition.  Examples follow:

“Honey, I’ve got spiders again!”

“A bit of the piles today it seems!”

Our Spiders & Piles Hemorrhoid and Varicose Veins Spritz is formulated for both preventative care as well as acute relief.  Spray it directly on the spot that needs relief or follow our instructions for creating a pad for extended acute relief.

WITCH HAZEL EXTRACT Hamamelis virginiana: A double-distilled extract, Witch Hazel is a powerful astringent with mild anesthetic properties.

Recommended Use: Spray afflicted area 3-4 times and, in the case of varicose veins, rub gently into the skin.  For extended hemorrhoid relief, spray onto an underwear liner & place in freezer.  Once the liner is cold, wear as needed.  Remember to be gentle, move mindfully, and love yourself.  Safe for use during pregnancy.
