Salves & Balms
An age old herbal application
Salves are a semi solid preparation made using an herbal infused oil base and beeswax. These ointment like formulations are used to carry the herbal benefits directly to the tissue that needs them. some salves are used to draw splinters and stingers from the skin while others are used to nourish dry, irritated skin. Balms come in handy when moisture is needed as these formulations have an added butter component. Typically shea or mango. These help to further encourage moisture retention for the effected area.
