THE MULTI-TASKER FOR BOO-BOO'S
Life can get chaotic. The tension of a headache, the pain of cracked skin or the swelling from an injury can often be the signal we need to slow down and tune in. Pain is often a signal to listen a deeper wisdom. While the best medicine can often be rest, water, and a home-cooked meal, it’s helpful to have a few herbal salves that can support the healing process. Our salves are infused with organic herbs that synergistically work together to keep inflammation down and moisture levels up. In a nutshell, regular application can help repair skin damage, reduce scar formation, restore suppleness, and speed up recovery.
Our bodies are permeable. Studies have shown that skin, our largest organ, can absorb up to 60% of what it comes into contact with. What goes on goes in. This is why personal care products should be as fresh and wholesome as the food we eat. Yet many product lines require preservatives that are linked to breast cancer (parabens), or add synthetic additives that can cause skin discoloration (fragrance), contribute to immune system toxicity (formaldehyde), disrupt hormones (phthalates), and irritate eyes and scalp (sodium laurel sulfate). That’s scary. Our botanical skincare is handcrafted in small batches using the highest quality organic and ethically foraged plants we can find.
HEAL HERBAL INFUSION INCLUDES
Calendula: An excellent aid for sunburn, bruises, and inflammation of the skin, calendula speeds up the healing process due to its ability to reproduce new skin cells. It also keeps wounds from hardening and forming scars.
Arnica: An extensively researched flower for its benefits in the treatment of pain, studies have proven that arnica decreases joint pain and stiffness and improves function for those with osteoarthritis. Arnica has been used to effectively aid arthritis, eczema, knee pain, and sore muscles.*
Comfrey Leaf: Rich in the skin healing compound allantoin, research has shown that sufferers of acute ankle sprains experience more rapid recovery with the application of a comfrey leaf infusion. Comfrey leaf reduces swelling, alleviates pain, and helps improve joint mobility.*
Marshmallow Root: This sweet, gel-like herb soothes and softens tissue, while controlling bacterial infections. Marshmallow root also has an enzymatic action that leads to boosting the dermis, reduce sagging skin, and diminishes inflammation.*
Turmeric Root: Curcumin, the primary active compound in turmeric root, has been reported to inhibit histamine release. Histamine can trigger eczema outbreaks, increase inflammation, and cause constriction of smooth muscles in some people with asthma. Much of the antihistamine and anti-allergenic power of turmeric has been attributed to its strong antioxidant properties.*
Our balms are crafted by hand in very small batches (about 36 at a time) with love and care. We combine unrefined butters and cold-pressed botanicals that have been solar infused with therapeutic herbs for 21 days. Mass-produced products often add water to their balms, which create an unstable formula. These require emulsifiers, preservatives, and other synthetic additives to keep mold at bay and extend shelf live. We believe in a more traditional, time-honored process using high quality, cold-pressed oils that are naturally anti-microbial and antibacterial with properties that nourish skin from within.
