I purchased this product to see if it would clear up a rash that's been on my husbands foot and back of his legs. It offers soothing relief but so far has not cleared it.

I bought this product for skin abrasions and chapping, but it has found a place on my nightstand, and I rub it into my hands every night. For some reason, I find the smell very calming and soothing, and with it on my hands, I'm asleep in seconds after my head hits the pillow. I've tried pure lavender before, but this product and it's smell just seem to work better for me. Yes, I still use it on tender skin, but it's become my comfort rub as well. I'm addicted. My only complaint is that it is a small container - it does last a long time, but it's a bit pricey for the size, I think.

This rub has a nice soothing effect. My 10 year old uses it to soothe his growing pains in his legs. I used it on my feet but it is quite greasy and stains my sheets, so I have to wear socks after I put it on.

It's very soothing and has a nice scent. With my last order of Rooting Bear Rub, you also sent me a sample of Warrior Bear Rub, and I believe that is better suited to my needs, and I like it's scent a little better. However, both are excellent products, and I'd easily recommend either one of them.

I wanted to write you about some amazing results I got from using Rooting Bear Rub. I live in the west and often like to wear sandals as often as I can during the year. That’s when I noticed some persistently dry skin and thickened on my heels – one more than the other. Moisturizers like lotion and baby oil didn’t seem to do much. Then I began using Rooting Bear Rub daily after taking my shower. Slowly the skin began to become softer and healthier. Today there’s no evidence of that problem skin at all. I continue to use a dab of Rooting Bear Rub on each heel after my daily shower. It’s fantastic!

Initially bought this for help in circulation in my leg after vein surgery, and it seemed to help heal the bruising. Then, my Shar Pei started to itch a lot, especially under his front legs. Since he can't lick that area, I thought I would rub some under his legs to heal the skin, and it worked!! He doesn't itch that area anymore and the skin is healing. He has other "hot spots" but he can reach those areas...

My father in law had a stroke 4 yrs ago that left him wheelchair bound. He started getting horrible pressure sores on his buttocks that just wouldn't go away. I purchased some Rooting Bear Rub and talked my mother in law into trying it. Within a short while you could see the healing process taking place, eventually the sores were gone!! Rooting Bear Rub is AMAZING!! I highly recommend anyone to try it on any open wound. You will also be amazed with the results!! Best part is it doesn't sting.

I have to wash my hands frequently during the day and usually have dry cracked areas when the weather gets cold. This product is the best for healing my hands.

Wow, was my first comment when I opened the container. The smell is immediate and told me that this was going to be a great product to put on sore muscles.Never got a chance to find out 'cause a visitor opened it up and asked if he could try it for his knee. Haven't seen it since then but my friend says it worked like a charm for him.

I have spent many years testing countless products trying to find a good cream or lotion that would help prevent cracked, dry skin on my feet. As a diabetic, this is very important. Rooting Bear Rub really helps to heal cracks and dry skin, and it is thick enough to stay on the areas I apply it to. I've ended up using it for all of my dry skin, and I've given it to friends and family who have complained about dry skin problems. I should add this is the first product I have ever felt strongly enough about to write a recommendation for. Thanks!

My job requires that I wash my hands very frequently, and consequently they are usually very dry. During the winter months I have a problem with cracked and bleeding areas. I have been extremely happy with Rooting Bear Rub. I apply it at bedtime and haven't had any issue with my hands all winter. After all these years I've finally found a product that works. I can't wear it during the day as its scent would probably be offensive to my clients. Excellent product.

I usually don't take the time to rate products that I decide to purchase, however, this one definitely deserves to stand out and be known to all. I had a problem area of stubborn "pimples" that I had tried everything on, expensive prescribed medications from a dermatologist, etc, to no avail, they persisted. This product worked within 1 week!!! I even purchased the Warrior strength in case this didn't work but I didn't have to use it. Also, during this time I became ill with flu and had a fever sore cold sore and used it on that...WOW, cut that time at least in half!!! Definitely recommend to all and for the person who reviewed that it "breaks up" when applying, all you need to do is rub between your fingers for a second; simple and worth the tiny effort for the results. This stuff is powerful. Thank you and please always have on hand!!!!

Rooting Bear Rub works on so many minor but at the moment major ailments. I have had success with curing dry skin, stopping blossoming facial blemishes, calming irritated nail cuticles, and patching up playful cat scratches. It is our GO-TO first solution for everyday nicks and scrapes, before paying the high price for drugstore creams and ointments. Good stuff.

My first purchase of Rooting Bear Rub was a hit. Having drier than normal skin, especially on hands and feet, I use it every night and morning. I recently burned my forearm on the fireplace and proceeded to keep opening the wound during daily activities. Once the healing process started, I used this product on the skin surrounding the burn, and on the healed over skin. I am an uber-scarring person, and I can barely tell where the burn was. It's amazing how the rub minimized the scar. Wish I had it when I had my 3 shoulder surgeries! Great Product.

This is my 2nd purchase of this unique rub. In the past I used it for stubborn dry skin areas. Two years ago I had an accident where flames went up into my nasal area. I suffer dryness and sores. I tried pure vitamin E and a natural saline aloe nasal spray but the relief was very temporary. On a whim I tried the rub in my nostrils before bedtime. I found relief and the sores went away. I am sure this is not what you expected, but if it didn't work, I would not have bought 2 more.

I thought this would be good for my friend so I bought her some, and a jar for myself. It does have the stiff, grainy, crumbly, not creamy, texture that another reviewer mentioned, but what I like about that is that there's none of the extraneous stuff that would give it a different consistency. You can just feel how pure it is. Nothing plastic-y or unnatural feeling.
I love this stuff, and it healed my friend's problem.

I purchased this, along with a few other products, to help my diabetic partner with various issues. I thought this rub would help her diabetic feet, as she has lower-than-ideal circulation, and also had started developing some small, blister-like sores in clusters on her feet. Not only did this product soften her dry skin, heal her cracked heel, but after about a month of using this, we also noticed that the sores had disappeared and they stay away!
I started using it, as I tend to develop calluses quickly after pedicures, and love how it absorbs into my skin, unlike some other dry-skin products, and my feet still feel soft a day later!
I have noticed that the product has dried out a little bit since first opening it, and since it softens to the heat of your skin, I just rub my fingers in circles on the product, then I'm able to apply it to my skin. As it's a "rub", it's not meant to be applied like moisturizer, so the review about not being able to scoop it out is accurate, only because that's not how it's meant to be applied.
I'll order more when I run out!

Now we are trying to figure out how we can make the container last until the our next pay day!!!

I like the medicinal quality of this moisturizing rub for soothing itchiness, or a minor injury. The texture is a bit unusual, not really a cream, yet it promptly smooths into the skin. I did not find the contents melting in warm weather, however. I'm a pleased repeat buyer.
Submitted on Nov 22, 2011
This seems like a good product, and it smells nice. The problem is that the consistency of the rub is very dry and grainy in the jar. I have to dig my finger into the product to extract a crumbly piece of it, and then mash the piece into my skin until it softens enough to be applied. Sometimes while I'm doing this, pieces of the rub fall off. I think I expected it to be like a creme.

What a wonderful rub! I'm not fond of the scent of lavender. In fact, it usually makes me ill, so I was hesitant at first to purchase this rub. It is included in the ingredients but the fresh, clean scent of the rosemary and tea tree oil mask it well. It is one lovely ointment. It's gentle, well absorbed and so soothing to the skin. I look around for rough spots to try it on. Though it's been very hot, I haven't had a melting problem yet. Great choice for your catalog!

I ordered the Rooting Bear Rub for it's all natural ingredients and wonderful reviews. This product meets and exceeds all my expectations! I have uncomfortably dry, itchy skin and eczema -- it bothers me the most at night. I slather on this rub before bed and when I wake up in the morning my skin still feels wonderful and moisturized! Also, I have had some sort of toe nail fungus on my right foot that has been bothering me for years now and causing embarrassing dry, flaky skin. Nothing I have tried works on it! Usually because the products I've tried have to be applied often and require me to remove my toenail polish, the only thing that covers the yellow nail! No way! Well after a week of applying the Rooting Bear Rub to my feet, my foot is completely back to normal!!! I wasn't even attempting to cure the fungus and never concentrated the lotion on my nail but it worked like magic! I will definitely be stocking up on this "miracle cream.'

My husband uses it on his psoriasis and the itch is instantly received. I use it on my baby's diaper rashes, I also use it to relieve swelling and itch after a mosquito or any insect bite. My children are all allergic to insect bites and it takes the swelling down immediately! My teenage daughter uses it on her acne, and I use it as a moisturizer. It's a product any person of any age in the house can use!
