Welp, guys..this is a crazy story for you, but I made this right after I made our bar soap formulation. My goal was to get off of lifelong skin steroid creams. A pretty big ask. After lots of research on skin barrier function, experimenting with infusions and different ratios of powerful natural ingredients, the Essential Salve was made. And it worked. Seeing this product take on a life of its own (helping chemo-impacted skin, kids with eczema, etc.) has been one of my greatest joys.
PERILLA SEED OIL: This oil contains anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, is potent in antioxidants and omega-3's, and is rich in polyphenols and triterpenoids. This ingredient is key for helping maintain the skin barrier against water loss, which is critical for damaged or dry skin.
BORAGE SEED OIL: One of the highest natural sources of GLA (gamma-linolenic acid), this oil is one of the most effective oils for common skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis, or dermatitis.
HELICHRYSUM: Native to France, this essential oil is antiseptic, fungicidal, anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, and should maybe change its name to "liquid gold."
Essential Salve: perilla seed oil*, evening primrose oil*, borage seed oil*, calendula infusion (in olive oil)*, chamomile infusion (in olive oil)*, shea butter*, helichrysum essential oil*, jojoba oil*, beeswax*

** PLEASE NOTE THE MOST CURRENT INGREDIENT LIST ABOVE. Due to a 2020 label shortage, the label on the product you receive might have a different ingredient list than above. Listed above is the most current ingredient list for this product.
***Please note this product can have a deep honey & strong oil smell because it is made with the highest quality unrefined organic ingredients & oils (like beeswax, perilla seed, and evening primrose oil) that are rather pungent on their own. Many "unscented" products do carry a natural and sometimes pungent smell. Our favorite example of a product that is "unscented" but has a strong natural smell is vitamin C, notoriously given the loving nickname "hot dog water" in the skincare community.
