Mend is an all-purpose, herbal skin salve that is made from healing, simple plant allies that I’ve ethically and reverently foraged and harvested from the woods and fields surrounding my home in Maine. This rich ointment is perfect for any season! It deeply hydrates, nourishes, and protects skin.
Use this versatile balm to heal and repair areas of dry, chapped, cracked, itchy, irritated skin and as a preventative to keep skin healthy and supple. Great on heels and elbows! Use it as a lip balm, a cuticle conditioner, or to tame fly-away tresses. This herbal preparation also makes a safe and effective first-aid, as it soothes and heals minor cuts, scrapes, and wounds (apply after cleaning them). It is also a remedy for minor burns and sunburn, and can take the itch out of bug bites.
This therapeutic blend is made from fresh plant matter (with some of the initial moisture released) and by slow infusion method over the course of 6+ weeks away from the light of the sun, to both honor the plant and deeply extract its medicine. Ingredients include a balance of yarrow, goldenrod, plantain leaf, St. John's Wort, self-heal, dandelion blossoms, and comfrey leaf. **Some of the ingredients in this salve may not be safe for use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. Please see product safety information below.**
My nourishing oils of choice for this salve include extra virgin olive oil and safflower oil. The base is made of beeswax.
∆ It comes in a 1oz. leak-proof tin and will last you a long time.
∆ No essential oils were used in this formula.
