I like the idea of collecting recipes. I label containers with the date of manufacture so to speak and the ingredients. In this case I made the balm a bit strong as I tend to have cracked skin/heels in summer.

1/8 cup JoJoba Oil
1/8 cup Almond oil
largish piece of camphor
splash of tea tree oil

combined with half cup melted beeswax.

If you want a 'harder' balm use more wax vice versa if you want it softer.

I've used ebay, an awesome local pagan/herb store, a great spice store in Seattle (they have a website as well they're called worldspice and have ridiculously low prices) and the grocery store. Beeswax was the most difficult to track down but I had to re-order it/track it down in January so that didn't help Smiley

Maybe.

I used to have a problem with my jaw kind of seizing up and then swelling due to TMJ. The only thing that helped was taking advil and ice packs. I'm not very good with herbal remedies, but if you know of an herbal anti-inflammatory, that might work too. If that's the sort of pain you're experiencing.

Also, I would avoid things like chewing gum. That seemed to really trigger it for me.

what is TMJ pain?

I have had TMJ my whole life as it is from the joint for my jaw not being formed correctly. I have tried every remedy, even had my jaw wired shut. It has been 19 years since I had severe symptoms and recently it is getting bad. My jaw muscles freeze up and get really tense, so tense that I cannot open my mouth at all. The pain is very intense. I have to stop doing anything and just sit/lay there in pain. There is slight swelling too. The pain radiates from my ear down to the middle of my back. I have been taking about 3000 mg of ibuprofen daily and I really don't want to be doing this for much longer. There is no stronger drug to take with out a prescription, and I do not have insurance to go see a specialist for that. So I am looking for an herbal remedy that is safer for my stomach/liver. I am using Valerian for migraines and that helps really well, but its not good for the jaw (it does relax muscles, but not enough for relief).

passion fruit flower is meant to work like Valerian but stronger, more info here http://health.howstuffworks.com/wellness/natural-medicine/herbal-remedies/passionflower-herbal-remedies.htm

I've had good luck reducing TMJ related issues by working with a Feldenkrais teacher (which is not the cheapest option, but in case you're interested I have a lengthy post up at http://jenett.dreamwidth.org/1373909.html explaining my experience and understanding of the system. My understanding is that TMJ is one of the things that the system has particularly reliable results with, but that you'll probably need one on one work (Functional Integration) rather than group classes.)

In general, I've had good luck with using skullcap (relaxant) or mullein (relaxant that a number of people think has a particular effect on skeletal realignment) for some related issues, but both of them have some cautions (because they're both somewhat sedative, when and how you take them compared to when and how you do things that need you alert, for example: mullein makes me feel fuzzy headed in a sort of "I'm on cold medicine" sort of way.)

I also wonder if Saint John's Wort salve applied right where the pain is (outside of the skin) might work: it has an anti-inflammatory effect and a mild pain-killing and muscle relaxant effect.
