Winter continues to settle its cold claws in the back of the Northern Hemisphere and those residing in that part of the world could benefit from such homemade compresses as the Six Senses Thai Herbal Poultice. Instead of stocking up on pills, rubs and everything else in between to kick (or perhaps avoid) that inevitable cold, it provides a relatively easy do-it-yourself remedy for even the most stubborn afflictions.

Poultices are soft, moist substances that work in a medicinal manner to draw out infection and speed up the healing process when applied directly to the skin. The Six Senses Thai Herbal Poultice does just that, but in a way native to Thailand. It was first created in Thailand's Ayutthaya period for wounded soldiers returning from war. Refinery29 writes, "The recipe below is designed to increase blood flow and circulation, relax tense muscles, and alleviate pain and inflammation."
