Soothing Salve is a great aid to skin repair, as well as having marvellous properties for soothing tempers and headaches. It is also fantastic at promoting peaceful rest - and so much else! This might be a very simple salve, but it's amazingly effective.
It contains just a handful of wonderful ingredients.
Apricot kernel and almond oils are nature's top offering when it comes to nutrition for skin. They are packed with oils and vitamins to aid cell growth and restore skin texture.
Lavender has been known for millennia as a superb skin healer; it is antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and pain killing. When blended with quickly absorbed, vitamin-rich nourishing nut oils it works to regenerate and nurture the skin.
Lavender has been named as one of the most useful of the essences for the relief of anxiety and stress. It's very good at calming over-wrought babies and young children and soothing headaches. It can help with sleeping too.
Lastly, beeswax offers not only a natural substance for 'setting' oils but it acts as a great preservative and has its own health-giving characteristics.
