In a short time, this drug has become very popular.

This drug is a complex of substances specially created by nature, designed to accelerate the healing of affected tissues. The balm is unmatched in the treatment of moderate burns, including sunburn. The remedy is effective even for burns of the cornea of the eye, including severe chemical burns.

At home, the sea buckthorn fruits, after squeezing the juice, crushing and drying, are infused in sunflower oil in a warm place for two weeks, filtered. In this case, an oily liquid is obtained with a high content of sunflower oil and a lower content of biologically active substances.
Higher quality sea buckthorn oil is easy to make yourself. For this purpose, the juice is first manually squeezed out of the berries. The remaining cake is dried in the oven at a temperature not exceeding 100 ° C, placing it in a sieve or on a grid covered with gauze. Oven-dried berries are high in oil. Dried cake is crushed using a coffee grinder. Then it is advisable to separate the seeds by sifting through a coarse sieve. A third of the crushed mass is placed in a glass or enamel dish, filled with an equal volume of refined sunflower oil and tightly closed with a lid.
Such a mixture is kept in a dark warm (50-60 ° C) place for 2-3 days, while stirring it at least twice a day. Then the oil is squeezed out of the cake and the next portion of the cake is poured into it, and the used one is poured with a fresh portion of the oil. Threefold extraction from three portions of cake is sufficient to obtain sea buckthorn oil of satisfactory quality. Sea buckthorn oil does not cause side effects.
In case of anemia and exhaustion, sea buckthorn fruits are used in food in any form. Leaves and young twigs are brewed and drunk like tea.

If we take into account all these conditions, then sea buckthorn should have disappeared from the face of the earth long ago. But she lives!
