(Don’t) Feel the Burn salve
- ingredients: chickweed (Stellaria media), plantain (Plantago major), calendula (Calendula officianalis), violet (Viola odorata), olive oil, beeswax, tulsi (Ocimum tenufolium) essential oil
This salve utilizes some of our most abundant and often overlooked ‘weeds’. Popping up right under your feet are your new bffs. Chickweed, plantain and sweet violet possess the ability to cool, soothe and soften irritated skin, relieve pain and draw out toxins such as dirt, venom from stings and even splinters. Calendula joins in to encourage the body to heal and repair damaged tissues. Tulsi has the ability to ease stress, protect healthy cells from infection and it’s aroma is undoubtedly uplifting. Use this salve on all manner of skin afflictions, burns, bites, stings, scrapes, rashes, eczema, random itchy patches, boo-boos, etc… The little plants inside are our humble allies. In the most simple things we find the greatest virtue and isn’t that what summer is all about?
