Best substance on earth
Ok, maybe a slight overstatement, but this stuff works, and I proved it. I bruise easily so I use this a lot. My husband was giving me a hard time about it, so I put the product to the test. I had a large flat bruise from a bike pedal across the back of my calf. So I applied Res-Q to one side of the bruise, and lotion to the other. You could visibly see the Res-Q side healing faster; after 1.5 weeks, the Res-Q side was two or three shades lighter, and significantly less sensitive. My husband admitted his error, and I started using it on the whole bruise.
Recently I found another great use. I had burned my finger very badly in the kitchen and all I had access to was my Res-Q. I wasn't sure if it was specifically for burns, but I tried it. A tin has now moved into my kitchen.... best burn ointment ever. IMMEDIATE PAIN RELIEF. One coat right then, another after I did the dishes and then one the next morning. It dissipated the blister, and it's already well on the way to healing with no skin loss or open would. Amazing!!!
I also use this product on my dogs when they get injured. I haven't tried the cats yet, as they don't appreciate my ministrations, but I love this product on my dogs nicks and boo-boo's. It seems to give them relief and if they lick it off later, I'm not worried about them getting sick. I have only use this in small quantities on my dogs, mostly on their ears.
Thank you Burt's Bees, you really have Res-Q'd me from pain!

This is the best product for bruises I've ever used. I use it twice a day on injection site bruises and it works very quickly. I recently got some trial sizes that I give to diabetic friends to try. So far, they've been very impressed. I even told a nurse at Wakemed about it and she's giving it a try.

My one cure for bug bites!
I buy this salve every.single.summer. It is my one and only relief from mosquito bites. Even my children have become conditioned to come find mommy's green stuff when their bug bites are itching and hurting. I take it with me everywhere I go during the summer months. The local organic market stopped carrying it for some reason, and so I went into a panic ordering it online. Now Im sitting here miserable because Im waiting for it to come! I refuse to use anything else, because I don't believe anything else will be as good!

To Say this works, is an understatement!
I don't know how it works, but it does! You can apply this to any cut, scratch, scrape, burn, or bruise and it goes right to work. I had a 2nd degree burn that completely healed in less than 6 days, blisters were gone in 24 hours. It is truly amazing! We use it on any type of "boo-boo" you can get. I recommend it to everyone.
