How and when ozocerite is used at home
Ozokerite is a natural substance with a wax-like consistency. It is an oil product whose deposits are located in the Carpathians, in Canada and on the islands of Britain.
Currently, treatment with ozokerite is quite common. This mineral raw material has found its application in heat therapy. Mountain wax, as it is also called, is an excellent material for this technique. Ozokerite is plastic, which allows you to give it the necessary form, and perfectly keeps the heat in a heated state.
Therapy with the use of mountain wax is used for articular pathologies (arthritis, arthrosis and osteochondrosis), and also in the period after surgery to accelerate the recovery of the body.
How to apply ozocerite?
Ozokerite at home can be used quite successfully. The implementation of this procedure does not require the availability of special equipment, and its methodology is quite simple. For home heat treatment will need two pans. One of them should be smaller, and the other should be bigger. Take ozocerite. It can be purchased in the pharmacy chain or in the online store.

To ensure that no water gets into it, cover the small saucepan with a lid.
At home, liquid ozocerite is poured into a shallow container (tray or baking tray), the bottom of which is pre-filled with medical oilcloth or some material that can withstand high temperatures. Molten mountain wax resembles thick kissel in its consistency and is evenly distributed.
The medical product is finally ready in fifteen to twenty minutes. To verify this fact you will need a wand or a toothpick. The resulting layer is pierced in several places. In the case when the liquid does not appear from the inner layer, prepared ozocerite is ready to be used for heat therapy at home.
A layer of rock wax is applied to the sore spot, kneaded along the contour of the body, and covered with a thick cloth cloak. The procedure lasts thirty to thirty five minutes. This method helps heat penetrate into the deeper layers of tissue. This provides a permanent and strong effect.
