Traditional Siberian Recipes in Agafia’s Rubs

Traditional Siberian recipes in Agafia’s Rubs Indigenous peoples of Siberia have long used medicinal herbs and other natural ingredients given by Siberian nature to make traditional remedies. They applied herbal balms to sooth muscle and joint pain, combat cough and cold, speed up the healing of skin injuries, etc. Many traditional recipes have been forgotten by now, but thanks to Agafia’s Rubs some of them are experiencing a second birth.

Agafia’s Rubs is a line of cosmetic balms that have a therapeutic effect and help to treat some conditions. None of them can be used as a primary treatment, but they effectively relieve some of the most unpleasant symptoms. All balms labelled as Agafia’s Rubs are based on natural animal fats that have been used in traditional medicine for centuries. They include goose fat, bear fat, badger fat, and mink oil.

These animal fats are rich in essential fatty aids and have a wide range of useful properties. For example, goose fat its valued for its ability to speed up the healing of minor injuries and the treatment of some skin conditions. It also makes the skin softer, prevents premature skin ageing, improves complexion, and protects the skin from harmful environmental factors.

Bear feat has pronounced toning and rejuvenating properties. It is a key ingredient in anti-cold balms because it produces a warming effect, relieves cough, and helps to get rid of mucus in the chest. Bear fat also reduces inflammation and relieves muscle and joint pain.

Badger fat is also known for it analgesic properties. Natural balms with badger fat help to treat sore muscles and some joint conditions. It also helps to prevent weather-beaten, dry and flaky skin. Finally, mink oil (also known as mink fat or mink grease) is valued for its regenerative and anti-age properties. It smooths out fine lines, produces a strong moisturising effect, and helps to regulate sebum secretion.

Alongside animal fats, natural balms by Agafia’s Rubs contain blends of herbal active ingredients obtained from plant raw materials harvested in Siberia, the Russian Far East, the Kamchatka Peninsula, and Altai. The plants are hand-picked in ecologically clean areas. They are extremely rich in useful substances because Siberian plants have to accumulate as much nutrients as possible in order to survive in the harsh climate of Siberia.

Agafia’s Rubs offers in a wide range of products, including body balms, cosmetic balms with a therapeutic effect, hand and foot balms, and lip balms. Each balm contains a combination of animal fat/vegetable oils/beeswax and herbal extracts and has a unique formula based on traditional recipes collected and recorded by Siberian herbalist Agafia Yermakova.

One of the most popular products labelled as Agafia’s Rubs is Warming Cosmetic Balm for Strains and Sore Muscles Rub No. 153. It is based on badger fat and a blend of 25 Altai herbs. Thanks to its original formula, the balm quickly and effectively reduces muscle and joint pain, relieves muscles tension, produces a topical warming effect on the skin, and stimulates microcirculation.

Such a formula ensures its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, rejuvenating and toning effect.
