In making our salve, we chose to combine several oils that each have their own beneficial properties.
We begin by infusing almond oil (which is a very emollient oil that conditions and softens the skin) with our own organically grown calendula blossoms (which have been valued for ages for their healing and skin rejuvenating powers) for several months to get the most out of its' healing attributes.
Then we add unprocessed beeswax and propolis from our own lovingly tended hives (this serves as an anti-bacterial agent that coats the skin with a protective barrier so that it retains moisture). We also add coconut oil, apricot kernel oil (which is superb for protecting and softening without leaving an oily feel), olive oil, vitamin E oil (a natural anti-oxidant and preservative), tea tree oil (which is a broad spectrum anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral agent with a wonderful scent), raw shea (which heals dry skin and is protective in harsh conditions) and essential oil of lemongrass to create our wonderful and unique healing salve.
This salve can be used to hydrate and heal very dry skin on any part of your body, even lips. Slather hands and feet with salve and cover at bedtime and wake up with super soft skin!
Great for little people too. It is also effective as a medicinal balm for cuts, burns, inflammation, rashes, irritations, stings, or abrasions. Holistic remedies have been used for centuries and contain no harmful chemicals.
We hand-craft items using only natural ingredients, most of which we grow here at the farm. We make products from our herbs, plants, bee wax & propolis. We believe in using quality ingredients in all our products.
