Bear Grease is a traditional first nations medicine, which is used for pain issues (especially joints & bones), for cosmetic purposes like hair and skin care, as well as treating hides. The first time I used it I was in a sweatlodge, and I put some over my heart so I could tolerate the intensity of the experience. These are just a few used for it, and the oil from Bear is highly charged energetically. Indigenous medicine (that which grows WHERE you were born) is the best medicine.
No pre-packaged product compares to the vibe this carries.
Because Bear stores fat all winter and survives, it contains elements that are vibrationally rich, and in that it draws energy to the area it is placed upon, which incites the natural healing process. Natives used this oil for their hair and skin, as its ability to moisturize is immense. The aroma is reminiscent of a ‘gamey’ olive oil, as Bears eat plenty of flora.
The first people did not waste a thing, as everything in this world is a gift for us to use. When a Bear leaves this realm for the dreamtime, it leaves it’s body behind to begin a new life, transformed. The grease is prepared differently by different people, as some is like lard, and some is oil. The oil is preferred because the rendering process is more complete, however this is debatable….
