Ok this is going to get personal. Maybe a little much for some and for that I apologize! For any of you who have experienced child birth you may still be suffering with some of the trauma our bodies go through to get those babies out. One of those after effects personally have been hemorrhoids. The pressure from the uterus combined with pushing in birth just makes them inevitable. If you suffer with hemorrhoids you know the discomfort and constant battle of having to deal with them. Sometime they go away but most of the time they do not. We don’t talk about them because it would be an incredibly awkward and embarrassing conversation but I would be robbing others of healing and relief if I choose to stay embarrassed.
My dad is a naturopathic guru amongst other things. He has been my bouncing board and has been educating me on holistic remedies for as long as I can remember. While visiting him a few years back I was watching him pack this clear solid cream IN not ON his foot. My dad suffers with poor circulation in his legs and as an outcome a deep hole was forming on his outer foot. It caused him tremendous pain that even made walking difficult. So I began to investigate what this cream was that he was so diligently filling the hole with (Sorry, gross I know) It’s called Ozonated Olive Oil.
Ozonated Olive oil is made with high quality, organic, extra-virgin, cold pressed olive oil that is put through a process of “ozone injection”, which is bubbling ozone into the liquid for an extended period of time. There are many tremendous benefits to OOO (best abbreviation ever) most commonly used for conditions of the skin and external body, As a massage paste, the ozonide acts as an antioxidant, allowing lactic acid and toxins to be released from the pores of the skin other benefits include:
- Stimulation of growth for skin cells
- Speeds up healing-time for skin wounds and ulcers
- Cleans and sterilizes the epidermis
- Reduces swelling and redness
- Calms the nerves and reduces the amount of pain in skin conditions
- May increase cellular function and cellular memory
- Acts as a free radical scavenger on harmful toxins
- Acts as a moisturizing facial conditioner (leave on for 20 minutes and promptly remove)
- Aids in healing processes and reduces scarring
- Promotes healthy skin conditions
- Good for removing makeup
- Good for animal wounds, as it is all natural, and can be licked
- Sunburn of the skin
- Insect bites and stings

- Hemorrhoids – One of the best natural remedies
- Sore muscles (rub as a massage paste)
- Cellulite Reduction

I have had incredible relief from hemorrhoids from using Ozonated Olive Oil. Any discomfort that I may have is resolved by using this cream. There has been a dramatic decrease in size and using OOO regularly is healing my body from having them at all. This is a great holistic product to have in your home. Especially as a parent we all deal with diaper rashes, burns, and other skin related issues!
Of course like all products not all are created equally. You want to be sure when purchasing OOO to ask the company if they are using a coronal or cold plasma unit. Ozone is a reactive gas and is very hard to stabilize, but by passing it through the oil, contained within an ozone resistant container, the ozone gas begins to interact and stabilize within the oil. As it is continually processed, the ozone slowly begins to turn the liquid form of the oil into a off-white colored paste.
You can purchase the OOO I use here. (HERE) Feel free to contact me with any personal questions or usage!
