This all purpose salve can be used for all sorts of ailments. It is helpful with aches and pains as well as skin issues. The three herbs listed below blend well to make this a must-have in your “wellness cabinet”!

Cottonwood buds contain salicylates which are anti-inflammatory. The aromatic resin is anti-oxidant and antimicrobial which makes it stimulating to skin cell proliferation.  These properties make cottonwood buds an excellent ingredient as a helper for muscle/joint pain relief and for soothing scraped, chapped or sunburned skin. It’s balsamic scent, to me, is pure heaven so I do not add any other essential oils to this salve. I wild harvest the buds in late winter from fallen branches.

Arnica is a pretty little yellow flower that has also been used by many for bruises, sprains and strains. This fine herb can get things moving in congested areas. My arnica flowers are purchased from a sustainable, organic source.

St John’s wort  is another little yellow gem that can be a great helper in calming nerve pain. My St. John’s wort is respectfully wild harvested. This plant has no sustainability issues and grows in glorious abundance in the summer. Some people have the nerve to call it a weed!

*Those who are allergic to aspirin should avoid plants or trees with salicylic acid, such as cottonwood and willow. *This salve should not be used on open wounds

    This salve is delightful, I was first drawn to it’s unique scent. It reminds me of the Cottonwood trees that used to grow along the creek back home. I use this on my face whenever I get diabetic raw skin spots and it is soothing and healing. Thank you Karin for this wonderful salve!!

    I have tried every single cream and remedy for my daughters eczema. I was very sceptical when my mom found this and ordered it but I gave it a try. After using it for oy 2 weeks I could see major improvement with her eczema. I am absolutely satisfied and would recommend anyone to try it
