Salve: Saint John's Wort
A rich organic salve, containing the healing herbs of St John's Wort, Calendula, and Comfrey, to help dry and damaged skin. Great all purpose salve. We have used it for dry cracked hands and heels, minor superficial burns, sunburn, itching rashes, and other minor skin irritations. Ida used this salve during radiation treatments.
Ingredients: Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil infused with Organic St. John's Wort, Organic Calendula and Organic Comfrey Leaf; Organic Unrefined Beeswax
Directions: Apply directly to affected areas. Not to be used on open wounds.
A note fom Ida: I used many of my salves while undergoing radiation treatment for breast cancer. I used the St. John's Wort salve the most, applying it immediately after every treatment and rotated the other salves throughout the day as needed. I had no problems with skin breakdown. Please remember that each of us is unique and there is no guarantee that it will work for everyone. My Radiation Oncologist was quick to point out that we do not know how my skin would have faired had I simply used the lotion that was supplied.
I just wanted to say how much I love the St. John's Wort salve. After having surgery, I started using this on my incisions once they were healed over, and it is amazing how much it soothed and helped heal the scars. There was one in particular that I thought would end up an ugly, raised scar, but quickly shrunk down to normal-looking skin by using this every day. I've also found it works well on acne scars. Can't wait to try out the other two I'm ordering! Beth, Wisconsin
