History

I took an herbalist course in 1998 and a form of this salve was one of the projects we had to complete.  After researching some of the best herbs for skin healing I tinkered with the original salve formula a bit.  I used my family as guinea pigs, asking them to use the salve for everything skin related.   Shortly thereafter my granddaughter (Meghan, shown at right) was born and my son and daughter-in-law used the salve on her bottom to help with severe diaper rash.  It worked beautifully!  It instantly soothed the burning rash and started the healing.  Once her initial rash was cleared up regular use of the salve helped keep her diaper rash away.  The salve was a hit for sure.

 

I continued giving out the salve to friends and family, telling them to use it for everything from burns to bee stings, cuts and scrapes, rashes, and of course infant diaper rash.  After a while I started hearing, "You really should sell this stuff!"

In 2003, after a bit more research and learning of the powerful antiseptic and antibacterial properties of lavender essential oil, I began adding some to the salve.  It adds to the healing properties while imparting a soothing lavender fragrance.  And I kept hearing, "You really should sell this stuff!"  So I decided to do just that.

In 2018 lip balm was formulated and added to the salve lineup, per customer request.
