This is the very first salve that we created, containing a healing quality that helped to make us one of the best! It is an oil-based salve, which is used to keep the skin moist and the herbal compounds idle on the skin’s surface, to do what they do best.
As discussed elsewhere on this site, cracks that form in the skin layer may actually become a giant doorway to a microscopic pathogens, allowing easy and immediate access. Some organisms may actually have the ability to swim in our skin layer as we do in the water. It may create a protective barrier from immediate pathogens, as it contains compounds they prefer to avoid.
It contains a bit of bloodroot, which is popular by its use in many drawing salves. We prefer the more gentle, consistent approach of using it, in combination with other herbs. It has highly medicinally respected resins, frankincense and myrrh, both with abilities to draw out impurities themselves. I incorporate poke root for its lymphatic capabilities when applied topically. It is topped off with the medicinal scent of the essential oil combination of frankincense, myrrh, and tea tree. Therefore, not only does it have the resins but it also has the extracted oils of their essences!
It is safe to use on animals and children. It offers a deep skin treatment and works amazingly for support with stretch marks, minor wounds, scratches, blemishes, and lesions. You can use it after a thorough washing on areas like the bottoms of the feet. You can use socks to cover them while sleeping, which may be an ideal time to use it anywhere!
