All-Purpose Herbal Salve, 2 oz.

All-Purpose Herbal Salve:  During the times that herbal remedies were common knowledge among households, salves were quite popular.  And useful.  The All-Purpose Herbal Salve is handcrafted with an infusion of the organic herbs of comfrey, plantain, calendula, yarrow, burdock, and lobelia in an olive oil base.  The salve also contains evening primrose oil, castor oil, beeswax, vitamin E, and an essential oil blend that includes lavender, tea tree, bergamot, and ginger.  This salve comes in a 2 oz tin (by volume) with a screw-top so that the lid won’t come off if you have it in your purse, first-aid kit, or wherever.

Following is a list of the herbs used in the infusion and what conditions/purposes that herbalists traditionally use them for.  (Disclaimer:  This is in no way offering medical advice or medical claims.  This is simply sharing information about common uses of these herbs by herbalists and other professionals, practitioners, and individuals.)

  • Comfrey:  Healing, relieves inflammation and pain, and encourages new cell growth.  Allantoin is a substance found in comfrey and is responsible for some of these therapeutic properties.  It is traditionally used to heal wounds, sores, bruises, and even broken bones.  Comfrey is not recommended for internal use.  It is safe for use by men, women (before, during, and after pregnancy and nursing), children, and animals.
  • Plantain:  Plantain leaf is an excellent “first aid” plant to have around and is touted for being a contact healer.  Fresh leaves, when crushed or chewed, can help stop the bleeding of an open wound, help to reduce pain and inflammation, relieves itching from bites or stings.  Plantain has also been used to treat diaper rash, eczema, psoriasis and other skin ailments/conditions.  It is safe for use by men, women (before, during, and after pregnancy and nursing), children, and animals.
  • Calendula:  Calendula is a popular healing herb.  It soothes skin inflammation and helps to heal burns, wounds, sores, cuts, scrapes, bruises, and rashes (including diaper rash).  The phytochemicals found in calendula are fungicidal, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory.
  • Yarrow:  This herb is especially useful for respiratory problems (colds, flu, fever) and for problems with the urinary tract.  However, it is used in this formulation to reduce inflammation and to assist with healing wounds, burns, sores, rashes, and to help stop bleeding.
  • Burdock:  Burdock is a great herb to use for chronic skin problems, such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis.  It is useful for poison ivy/poison oak and helps to relieve itching.  This herb is also commonly used to aid with allergies, bronchitis, arthritis, rheumatism, and urinary tract infections.  It is safe for use by men, women (before, during, and after pregnancy and nursing), children, and animals.
  • Lobelia:  Lobelia is useful for treating poison ivy, rashes, insect bites, bruises, inflammation, sprains, swelling, and ringworm.  It is said to help with muscle spasms and respiratory problems as well.  It is safe for use by men, women (before, during, and after pregnancy and nursing), children, and animals.
