Growing older means my skin doesn't heal as quickly as it used to. Our new kitten left 2 red scratches on my left leg. I kept wondering when on earth they would at least start to heal. On a whim - and some desperation - I used the Ailments Herbal body butter on the scratches and the next day, they had lightened considerably. The healing process had finally begun. I was actually impressed. And relieved. Thanks, Brittany!
Ailments Tallow Joint Cream
Luxurious Artisan Body Butter
made with Organic Oils and Grass-fed Beef Tallow
Net Weight 3.40 ounces
Natural Joint Cream
Our Ailments Tallow Body Butter was developed to hydrate dry, cracked skin while allowing the vital essences of the powerful botanicals to absorb deep into your skin. This tallow body butter does not create a harmful barrier on your skin as does many petroleum-based lotions in today's marketplace. Rather, it contains ingredients similar to our own skin's oil, known to improve radiance and glow almost immediately.
This natural moisturizer is very concentrated and can last a long time. It can be used on the whole body as the ingredients are not known to clog the pores. Within 5-10 minutes, the oils will absorb deep into the layers of your skin, leaving no greasy feeling, just pure, clean moisture that will last all day. Because the ingredients in this body butter are the least refined and purest form possible, your skin will enjoy the natural, rich blend of essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins not found in modern day skin care.
This specific body butter has also been infused with 3 herbs: turmeric, white willow bark and yarrow flower to encourage a positive response in the body, especially in the joints. Please research the individual ingredients to see how this can benefit you as the FDA will not allow any claims. Educate yourself!
The following herbs have been infused into the oils for a minimum of 8 weeks to ensure the plant constituents have fortified the oils. All this is done prior to making the final product:
- White Willow Bark. This study done by the University of Maryland Medical Center indicates that white willow bark is used to "ease pain and reduce inflammation". They go on to say, "Researchers believe that the chemical salicin, found in willow bark, is responsible for these effects. However, studies show several other components of willow bark, including plant chemicals called polyphenols and flavonoids, have antioxidant, fever-reducing, antiseptic, and immune-boosting properties. Some studies show willow is as effective as aspirin for reducing pain and inflammation (but not fever), and at a much lower dose."
- Turmeric. This study done by the Department of Stomatology, University of California concluded that "Curcumin (the primary component in turmeric) has been demonstrated to be safe in six human trials and has demonstrated anti-inflammatory activity. It may exert its anti-inflammatory activity by inhibition of a number of different molecules that play a role in inflammation."
- Yarrow Leaf and Flower. Yarrow was used by our ancestors for treating external wounds on the skin, fighting fevers and improving circulation. Scientists have credited yarrow for its positive effects on almost every organ in the body.

Fats are Essential
Fats are the building blocks for every cell membrane in the body, provide energy, help us absorb minerals, carry a wealth of vitamins. Beef fat, otherwise known as tallow, resists rancidity and is shelf-stable making it an ideal choice for cooking AND skincare.
Compatible To Our Skin
Tallow contains the same fats or lipids found in healthy, supple human skin. Lipids are found in abundance in the membrane of every cell in our bodies. They are responsible for the free flowing of materials in and out of our cells.
They are beneficial because they create a protective, yet permeable barrier that prevents infection, maintains moisture, flexibility and structure of the cell.
Tallow, therefore, is able to absorb deep within the layers of the skin, preventing dryness at the cellular level without suffocating the skin's barrier as does petroleum-based lotions.
Benefits of Tallow Skincare:
- Skin retains moisture, stiffness, and strength
- Anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties help prevent infection
- Aides in repairing damaged tissue
- Improves the barrier function of skin cells naturally
- Restores healthy, youthful looking skin
- Replenishes the building blocks of our cells that decreases with age
The source of tallow is just as important as the tallow itself. Grass-fed tallow contains a wealth of nutrients due its to strict pasture-grazed diet. In contrast, factory-farmed cows are exposed to toxin-filled steroids, artificial hormones and antibiotics.
Tallow from Grass-fed Cattle
- Rich in essential fatty acids
- Loaded with vitamins A, D, E and K
- Natural antioxidant
- Contains CLA, known to reduce cancer cells

I purchased the “ailments” for joint health tallow body butter... oh my goodness! I LOVE LOVE this butter! I applied this that evening to my knees and lower back... massaging it in as you had suggested.... and literally not soon after I went down my stairs and back up WITHOUT pain! Usually I have to stop and walk up and down slowly but not this time! So I tried it again the next morning... getting in and out of my car .. again NO pain in my knees!!! I refuse to take medication for my pain.... and now I don’t have to thanks to your wonderful butter! I was practically in tears I am so happy! I read EVERYTHING regarding your family business and am a sole believer in your whole philosophy pertaining to skincare. I am now a forever customer... thank you! I LOVE your soap also !!! I will be telling everyone I know about Nefertem Naturals!!
Hello, I met you at a craft show that you did around Christmas and I tried your tallow lotion. It took the pain right out of my hands. I hope you carry it forever.
If you are experiencing any aches and pains and don't want to use the harsh chemicals out in the market, this is just what you need. Whether it is your back, shoulder, neck, etc... this has proved to do its job.
I recently hurt my shoulder in a sports injury. After just one application of this, I felt so much relief. I have been using it now for 2 weeks and I am completely over my should er pain. This is far different from other times I've done the same thing. It normally takes a month before I can go out and play again. Not this time though. Great product and I like that it is completely pure. Happy I chose to purchase.
After only two wees of using your Ailments Joint Cream, I noticed a significant difference in the way my knees felt. I can move more freely and I have less pain. Thank you for a great product!
I absolutely love this body butter! It leaves my skin soft without feeling greasy and I love that it can be refrigerated.
