Bug Bite Begone Salve

$10.00

Salves are traditionally used to help soothe the skin and rehydrate the affected area.  Our salves are a carefully composed recipe of herbal infused olive oil, beeswax and benzoin resin.  We start by infusing our olive oil with dried herbs to ensure the oil absorbs as much of the biochemical properties of the herbs as possible.  This process happens at a low temperature for an hour while constantly mixing and grinding the herbs to break them down further and further.  The herbal oil is then heated in a saucepan at a very very low temperature while benzoin resin is added and melted and then beeswax is added slowly, testing the firmness of the salve with every half oz of beeswax added to ensure all salves are firm but not rock solid.

The Bug Bite Begone salve features plantain leaf, calendula, and activated charcoal in the herbal infused oil. Traditionally, these herbs all have their own biochemical properties used in medicine or cosmetics.
