Traditionally effective

Marmot

The beneficial effect of marmot oil as in old home recipes has been prized for centuries, above all in the alpine region. It has been used since time immemorial to treat tense and sore muscles, lumbago and joint pain, for example after sporting activities. It in particular provides relief to joints and the musculoskeletal system.

The active substances the pure marmot oil contains include various fatty acids such as palmitic acid, oleic acid, linoleic acid, linolenic acid, vitamin E and (natural) corticosteroids. Applied after doing sports, hiking and other physical exertion, it promotes rapid regeneration of the musculoskeletal system. Countless masseurs and therapist use marmot oil in their day-to-day work. And what many people don’t know is that pure marmot oil can even be ingested, as it has beneficial effect on the stomach and lungs.

Marmots are hunted in late summer (August/September) before they go into hibernation because their numbers are at their greatest at that time of year. Some 7,500 animals are shot each year in Austria, though only a very small proportion is painstakingly processed to produce the valuable marmot oil. At any rate, the animals are not hunted for the purpose of producing salves – and using marmot oil is thus a sensible way to utilise the hunted animals.

A mountain of used tissues, countless spoonfuls of cough syrup, copious quantities of tea, lozenges, chest rubs and hot baths spring to mind when you think about colds, don’t they?

Who hasn’t had a wart at least once in their life?

It’s mainly children and the elderly who’ll notice these small, round growths on the surface of the skin. But what causes warts and how do you get rid of them?

What causes dry skin?

Did you know that your skin is the largest organ in your body, with a surface area of approx. 2 square metres? That’s crazy when you consider that it’s exposed to external and internal influences day in, day out.
