Pilgeröl ® - Pilgrim oil
7 herbs, 7 oils - a complete care concept - not only for pilgrims!
No matter how far the distance you would like to walk is, going on a pilgrimage always means a particular challenge for body and mind needing very special intensive preparation. Hiking or pilgrimage tours of several days are also a physical challenge because nowadays people are not used to walk and carrying loads at the same time. Help needing not much space and of low weight but offering the highest effect is useful here.
The combination of high-quality oils and traditional healing herbs has a calming effect and stimulates metabolism - with our pilgrim oil you have the complete care program in one product: Irritations subside, tensions are relaxed. After excessive sport activities our Pilgrim oil improves heavily stressed parts of the body like shoulder, back, legs or feet. It is also a great help for shorter walking distances and relaxes on the way.
As preventive care the Pilgrim oil provides for a smoother skin and avoids blisters.
Tip: Also suitable as massage oil for relaxation of the entire body.
The Pilgrim oil is closely associated with BIOTURM founder Martin Evers. The idea for this special product came to him on his first pilgrimage on the Way of St. James. After he had prepared his feet with it for the second pilgrimage from the Westerwald to Rome, he actually arrived at St. Peter's Square after more than 2,000 kilometres without blisters or problems and knew that he had found the recipe for a very special product which, on the one hand, is specifically designed for the long strains on the body during the pilgrimage, but, on the other hand, is also a great help for every shorter strain on foot.

Arnica Montana Flower Extract
Arnica (Arnica montana) is a traditional medicinal plant of Central Europe. It has anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and soothing properties. Arnica is used in the treatment of bruises, haematomas, swellings and irritated skin, arthritis and joint pains. Furthermore it is used for muscle relaxation. ATTENTION in case of allergies against daisy family!
St. John's wort
Hypericum Flower/Twig Perforatum Extract
St. John's wort is native to Europe, West Asia and North Africa. It has wound-healing and antibacterial properties and inhibits the formation of staphylococci strains which especially damage the skin of people suffering from neurodermatitis because the skin’s natural barrier function is affected. St. John's wort is traditionally used in case of blunt injuries, poorly healing wounds and first-degree burns, in case of light inflammation of the skin as well as impure skin. The extract used by BIOTURM does not contain any photosensitising hypericin.
Evening primrose oil
Oenothera Biennis Seed Oil
Evening primrose oil is extracted from the seeds of the evening primrose (Oenothera biennis L.) It is native to the Northwest of North America and can today be found throughout North America and Mexico as well as in East Asia and Europe. Primrose oil has a high content of linoleic acid and γ-linolenic acid; both fatty acids are important components of the skin’s lipid layer. Transepidermal water loss is reduced; coarse skin is softened and regenerated. Evening primrose oil is suitable for all skin types but is particularly used in case of flaky and irritated skin as well as for skin prone to inflammation and allergies.
