Salve

Herbal Salve

Salves are an effective aid that use oil infused herbs known for their healing properties to promote healing of skin. Our salve is made in a reusable/recyclable metal tin that can be easily slipped into a purse, pocket or your first aid kit. The salve is semi-solid at room temperature and softens for absorption once applied to the skin. Beeswax is added for it’s protective, soothing, emollient, nourishing and healing benefits.

To make my salve, I use the solar method which takes several weeks for the salve to infuse into the oil. This method ensures the healing properties of the herbs are protected. Some others may heat theirs to infuse, which is quicker, but does risk damaging the herb healing properties. Salves should be stored in a cool location where they will remain semi-solid and will not continue to re-melt and re-solidify.  If stored correctly, the salve will last for about 2 years.
