Sage Salve: Healing Skin Balm
Don’t leave home without this salve! It’s the perfect pocket companion to all your adventures. Use it on anything from dry skin patches to itchy bug bites to minor cuts and scrapes. Locally harvested herbs and beeswax soothe and protect irritations as white sage works its healing magic.
Native to Southern California, white sage is sacred to many Native peoples. Unfortunately, it is in danger of being over harvested as world wide demand increases. We proudly grow our white sage on Maui from seeds lovingly harvested nearly a decade ago in the Santa Barbara mountains. The spirit of this plant is graceful and powerful, gentle and aromatic, and entirely devoted to healing. I feel a sense of great protection in her hands.
Calendula flowers offer their gentle anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties while wild harvested plantain comforts and soothes. Comfrey and marshmallow root moisten dried skin, heal scrapes, and create a protective layer. Maui honey and beeswax offers an antimicrobial boost from bee helpers lovingly tended on the slopes of Haleakala.
Apply to soothe dry skin, mild cuts, scratches, scrapes, rashes, burns, bug bites, or any skin irritation. Best used within 18 months and stored in a cool location.
