This pure and simple salve uses a blend of three traditional herbs - chamomile, calendula and chickweed - all well-known for their healing, soothing and calming properties.
Chamomile is used for its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-allergenic and gently sedative properties. Calendula (or marigold) is an all-rounder, known to reduce itching, redness, pain and swelling of insect bites and rashes, soothes sunburn, cuts, scrapes and dry or chapped hands. Chickweed is also well known to calm irritation and inflammation, and supply cells with vital vitamins A and C.
All three herbs are infused in easily absorbed, light, organic sunflower seed oil for at least three weeks to gain maximum healing power. Sunflower seed oil is medically proven to help maintain the skin's proper balance, particularly in young babies, as well as being recognised for its nutritious, skin calming qualities. We use beeswax (local when we can get it) to thicken and help preserve freshness, and provide healthy moisture resistance and retention.
