Rhus Toxicodendron

Rhus Toxicodendron

#1 for Joint Stiffness & Pain • Irritations • Rashes & Common Hives • Pain Improves with Motion

Rhus is #1 for helping the body relieve various joint symptoms: stiff achy joints, minor arthritic stiffness, backache and related pains that need gentle motion. Rhus can soothe a range of skin symptoms: blistering itchy rashes, common hives, acne, eye irritations; as well as symptoms of tickling coughs, restlessness, nervous fatigue and headaches. Rhus applies best when symptoms improve with heat and motion and worsen at night, while sitting still, and in damp cold weather.
