Deep Tissue Salve and Oil
Not only can herbs be taken internally by mouth, they can also be applied to the skin. The skin is our body’s largest organ and what we put on it is absorbed into the body. One way to apply herbs to the skin is with oil based preparations, such as herbal infused oils or salves. Herbal salves are simply herbal infused oils thickened to a spreadable consistency with beeswax. Traditionally herbs have been chosen for herbal oils and salves that extract well into oil and support healthy skin. Many of our herbal oils and salves contain rosemary leaf and/or Vitamin E oil which helps to prevent rancidity of the oil and preserve the goodness of the herbal oil or salve.
