What Are Salves

 

Chagrin Valley Salves are semi-solid healing ointments used to nourish dry skin and soothe minor irritations. If you are my age (over 60), you remember topical ointments and salves from the corner drugstore. Unfortunately, these ointments were made primarily of petroleum products, like petroleum jelly, and were not truly agents of healing.

Chagrin Valley salves are made with USDA Certified Organic ingredients. It does not make sense to create a healing product with ingredients that contain GMO's and are sprayed with pesticides, irradiated and fumigated. We use . . .

  • Certified Organic Oils
  • Certified Organic Herbs & Botanicals
  • Certified Organic Essential Oil

There are no artificial ingredients, no petroleum products, no synthetic preservatives or emulsifiers and no synthetic fragrances.

Organic herbal salves work because they rely on the medicinal properties of nature.

To make a basic salve, all you need is an oil and beeswax. But the magical part of a healing salve comes from the herbal infused oils we use to make them.

Herbs are plants that contain a life force of their own. Slowly infusing herbs into oil transfers the healing properties, scent, and color to the oil, and is one of the oldest forms of medicine-making.

We have many different salve formulations. The herbs, botanicals, and oils we use depend on the end result we are trying to achieve. 

Whether you call them balms, salves, or ointments, Chagrin Valley organic salves are combinations of healing herbs, botanicals, and therapeutic soothing oils. Some salves contain pure essential oils for their healing and/or aromatherapeutic properties.
