Joint Elixir Tincture

Joint Elixir Tincture

Regular price $18.00

This elixir begins with a fresh juice of turmeric and ginger, which is reduced down to 1/3 its original volume, making it very concentrated. Then a glycerite is made using nettle, celery seed, and rosemary. The two are then combined with the goal of helping to ease the pain associated with  joint/musculoskeletal issues.

Turmeric is one of those amazing herbs that benefits most systems in the body. It is shown to have positive affects on the immune system and circulatory system. Most notoriously, it works really well for inflammation (or "stuck heat") especially for arthritis and joint pain. 

Ginger is not only great for aiding digestion, but because it contains Gingerol - a bioactive compound responsible for much of its medicinal properties - it has powerful anti-inflammatory effects.

Nettles are a traditional spring tonic for those who have become depleted from the long and cold winter, but they are also a powerful inflammation modulator that have been known to reduce pain associated with arthritis.

Celery Seed plants store their nutritious fatty acids as oil within the seeds. These antioxidants can reduce inflammation by destroying free-radicals. In India, celery seed its traditionally used for rheumatoid symptoms.

Rosemary is another anti-inflammatory herb that is high in antioxidants that can sooth muscle and joint pain. It is also said to increase blood flow to the brain, and help with memory.

handcrafted and curated right here in Upstate NY

All of our leather goods are handmade by The Local Branch out of our Upstate NY homestead workshop, which is just 7 miles from our brick + mortar shop in the charming Finger Lakes village of Skaneateles NY.

We started our leather working journey as transplants to Northern CA from Upstate NY in our early twenties. It was 2009, and hunting for a creative job seemed near impossible during the recession - so we started our own thing, and called it The Local Branch. With very little resources at first, we dabbled in leather working using scrap pieces of hides and a found-on-the-side-of-the-road sewing machine. The very first piece Blaine created was a leather holster, made for his phone and wallet. From there our leather working journey began.

At the same time we began printing apparel with a focus on nature, travel and American history. We stretched our own screens, painting each design by hand and lovingly printed every piece ourselves - a process which is very true to form today. We source all of our blank apparel items in the USA, which has always been our beacon for our brand.

We eventually decided to take this hobby brand into our full time venture. We renovated an Airstream trailer and turned it into our mobile workshop, touring America full time for over two years. We sold our goods at festivals, craft shows and online, as well as wholesale to many shops throughout the USA, Canada and Japan. After landing some of our goods in a few major retailers, we decided to slow down and keep the ethos and vision for the brand to small, local and handcrafted.

Still today Blaine and Mackenzie steer the ship - keeping everything small + handcrafted.
