We intentionally avoid adding additional ingredients like dispersants and emulsifiers. Other creams will add these to provide a consistent and blended creamy texture. Leaving these out enables us to leave out many unnecessary ingredients and concentrate our formula into just three powerful ingredients. The product did not spoil. All the ingredients are anti-bacterial and the product has an unlimited shelf life. It possible the frankincense and myrrh settled towards the bottom of the jar as it melted in transit.

What are the best areas of the body to treat?
You can apply Wise Men Healing Balm directly to the effected achy joints, but getting the balm to penetrate through thick skin can be challenging so we rely on our body's special reflexology points (the bottom of our hands and feet and our ears). Applying Wise Men to the bottom of your feet for neuropathy works well because there are 800 pores per square inch on the foot and the short nerve pathway makes the treatment point quicker to treat. Arthritis is usually located further up the nerve pathway making it less effective. Treating the hands/fingers fingers/toes for arthritis may be the most effective area on the body.
Why did Stan create Wise Men?
Stan developed his Wise Men Healing Balm as an alternative treatment to the conventional cancer options. It also helped ease the pain of his cancer. He abandoned the chemo and radiation treatments and put all his faith into his Wise Men formulation. It kept him alive and he was able to live a fairly normal life. His body was strong enough to take over. I thought my brother was cured and I wish i could report to you a happy storybook ending but he eventually succumbed to the cancer and died in 2017. There is no doubt that even to his very end the Wise Men was helpful relieving his pain.
Will Wise Men expire?
There is no expiration. All the ingredients are anti-bacterial and the product has an unlimited shelf life. However if the temperature is allowed to change and it liquefies and solidifies occurs overtime, the frankincense and myrrh may settle towards the bottom of the jar. If that happens you could let it liquefy in a sunny window or soak it in hot water, then stir well. This will reconstitute the oils into a consistent balm when it cools off. To avoid all that make sure you're storing it in a cool room.
