The smell of Aunt Esther’s pumpkin pie. The crackling fire all aglow. You, huddled alone in a corner, reeking of Theraflu, VapoRub, and a (Nana-sanctioned) shot of Jack Daniel’s.
(It was no way to spend the holidays.)
Time for a sniffle season intervention. Time for Eureka Balm.
The century-old formula was passed down through proprietor Patti Howes’s family as a cure-all salve for aches, pains, and winter ailments. You can count the simple, natural ingredients (camphor, shea butter, beeswax, wintergreen, and cedar leaf oils) on one shaky, flaky hand.
Use it as a chest rub or burn salve. (The smell is more minty-fresh gum than yucky tearjerker.) Or invest in the bath crystals for a sinus-clearing, muscle-soothing soak.
It’s nothing to sniff at.
Available at Dia Flora, 595 Wimbledon Road, suite 2, Midtown (404-386-4837 or diafloranaturalfragrances.com). Howes keeps studio hours, so call before you swing by for a tin.
