A salve is a natural healing ointment. First we infuse our blend of organic herbs in non-GMO grapeseed oil in glass containers in cold and dark conditions. This extracts the nutrients and healing properties of the herbs into the oil and not any toxins that would leach from plastic infusion containers. Then beeswax is added to provide structure and protection, as well as organic raw coconut oil and a touch of castor oil to offer soothing and emollient. Vitamin E is well established to have benefit to the skin and extends the shelf life of the otherwise preservative free salve. This process has been used by herbalists, grandmothers, mothers and families for thousands of years, and now we continue the tradition. There is no better way to keep baby rash free than keeping skin dry by changing diapers often, avoiding food triggers, and avoiding diapers, detergents and other products that may cause irritation. Rashes do sometimes occur though, and when they do, we reach for our Baby Salve. We also use it to simply clean babies. Wash and dry hands, and then use a small amount of salve to swipe out little shmutsy rolls and folds.
