his salve is comprised of herbal infusions of wild rose hips and comfrey in castor oil. Here are some of the reasons why I chose castor oil as the main component of this salve:
Castor oil stimulates lymphocytes in the body. Lymphocytes speed and enhance the healing process. This accelerates the healing of acne wounds and scars.
The oil hydrates softens, and regenerates skin - it is a "dry" oil and does not clog pores, thus it is very safe to use on your face for acne scars. Castor oil is also anti-inflammatory and thus will soothe any inflammation caused by blemishes or acne.
I gather wild rose hips in Autumn and crush them with a mortar and pestle so that the vital oils in the seeds are usable. Rosehip seeds have one of the highest sources of vitamin e of any plant, and vitamin e stimulates the formation of collagen on the skin, making it one of the best additions in a salve for scar healing.
Other ingredients in this salve are cacao butter, shea butter, rosehip seed oil, and a therapeutic essential oil blend. The essential oils of neroli, lavender, and cedarwood were specifically chosen for their skin regenerative benefits.

Our salves are made by a Certified Herbalist, using traditional herbalist methods of steeping herbs in a south-facing window for 4-6 weeks in our North Georgia sunshine. This solar infusion method is the most effective way to extract the healing properties from the herbs.
To Use: Apply to skin as needed. Consistent use equals the best results, use at least once a day, a few times a day is better. Apply heat as needed with a heating pad after applying to the skin for even better results.
I have been studying herbs and creating herbal apothecary items for over 17 years. I create everything with loving intention and healing energy.
I use the finest ingredients I can find for my body care products. Organic and local as much as possible. A lot of the herbs are grown and/or wildcrafted in North Georgia and I only use herbs and essential oils to add fragrance - no chemical fragrance oils.
All body care and apothecary products are created in small batches by hand to ensure their authenticty.
