This is my most effective all purpose healing salve. As a wildcrafting herbalist, I'm often deep in the woods gathering plants and get thorned, brambled, poked by sticks, catching poison ivy, get attacked by hordes of mosquitoes and biting insects, then return home and slather on some Hiker's Balm for some super fast healing and relief from itching.
What sets this apart from other healing salves is the attention to herbal energetics. For example, Cottonwood buds are astringent (tighten swollen & leaking tissues) is anti inflamatory, and it is a pain reliever on account of the salicins present. This is one of several ingredients. I also use a large amount of pinion pine resin infused oil, I haven't found anything more effective for the relief of bug bites than this. The key word here is infused oil. I take whole herbs and infuse them in oils as opposed to simply using aromatic essential oils mixed with a base oil. While essential oils are nice for some purposes, the only action they can give is aromatic, and frankly when it comes to healing swollen tissues and repairing the skin, aromatic actions will not be very helpful.
These are time honored, herbalist prepared medicines combine to form super healing salve. I use 100% wildcrafted and organic ingredients of:
Pinion Pine Resin
St. Johns Wort
Pumpkin Seed Oil
Tea Tree Oil
Vit E oil
and local Beeswax
They come filled to the brim in screw locked 2 oz container.
I believe this is the best healing salve, I really do. I'd like to thank you for taking a look through my shop and reading this. It is my pleasure to help you in any way.
