  2. Apply to the affected area and allow it to absorb for 30-45 minutes maximum.
  3. Or apply 2-3 times a day to the affected area with a cotton ball and allow it to dry.
  4. Enjoy quick relief.

Tip: The solution will stain, so be cautious of where it comes in contact with. Do not touch any mucous membranes after application. If eye contact is made with the solution, rinse with water thoroughly.

Limitations and Contraindications

  • Since EBW is a topical analgesic, it works best for treating more surface level injuries or ailments than deep internal injuries or ailments. The deeper it has to penetrate, the less effective it is.
  • Not recommended for treating abdominal pain or hip issues.
  • EBW is considered broad-spectrum, but if you use it repeatedly enough and notice little effect, it might not be the proper treatment.
  • Do not use over the sacrum or abdomen while pregnant.
  • Do not wrap in plastic and use it as a compress- not letting it breathe can cause blistering.
  • It is safe for use on children, but watch for irritation.

Makers note: Most people have no idea that what we get in the USA is an inferior quality and most herbalists might not even think that much about it. The real winner and what makes it magnitudes better, is the herb quality. Making it with B or C quality herbs (which is what is commonly available and sold by US suppliers) and then craft it with imperial grade herbs (2-5 grades above normal) is basically a different product.

Evil Bone Water has no animal products. Furthermore, non-GMO, gluten-free, cruelty-free, pesticide-free, contaminant free.

Every herb is microscopically tested not only for proper variety and contaminants, but strength. We make sure they are all sustainable and ethically sourced. Everything that goes into that bottle comes from the finest ingredients on the planet.

When we craft our product, I always ask myself- What do I want on my skin? In my patient’s body? My own family?
