With 20-30 women visiting the store each week, I get to hear a lot of needs. I recently had a mama with some rashes around her cesarean scar that weren't healing well. On the journey to come up with something that would help her, I turned to our vendor Ruthie Turnbo with Smarty Plants Healing Herb Farm. A few days later she appeared with HEALING SALVE! A quick look at the ingredients and I knew this would be a winner for healing, cost and ease of use.
This formula contains a few key ingredients that make it especially beneficial for healing. Let's look at the benefits of these herbs, then I will discuss the many conditions they will benefit.
The Plantain Herb has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties which can help reduce the risk of infection. It is also anti-inflammatory so it can relieve pain and burning, and can also stop itching in bites or rashes. Plaintain Herb also has the ability to draw things out, which is useful for splinters or boils.
The other key herb in this blend is Comfrey. Comfrey has been known as "knitbone" for it's ability to speed the healing process. It is an anti-inflammatory like Plantain, but also contains allantoin, a substance that helps new skin grow. Comfrey is also sometimes used as a pain killer.
This blend also contains some amazing oils, coconut oil being the most valuable for healing. It is antibacterial and antifungal which helps to keep infection away. Coconut oil also contains Lauric acid which can speed healing. It is also soothing on irritated tissues.
There are more than 101 uses for HEALING SALVE, some of them being:
Postpartum Perineal Care
Rashes including Diaper Rash
There are so many uses for this HEALING SALVE. If you are preparing for birth, you'll want to have this in your hospital bag and some on hand for after birth for perineal or cesarean healing. If you are a mom, you'll want to have this on hand as your little one grows and starts exploring for when they sometimes will get an "ouchy".
From a customer: "I purchased this salve for my hemorrhoids which were burning and stinging. This salve is amazing! I have had burning all day and it took the pain right away!"
