All the good things about being in a Canadian forest - minus the mosquitoes and the bears! This hydrating, all-purpose wildcrafted salve is inspired by summertime hikes through the Boreal forest and made with plants selected for their properties of repairing broken, dry, inflamed and irritated skin. Soothing, moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, anti-fungal and rich in antioxidants, vitamins and aromatic compounds. Our salve can be used for burns, bruises, wounds and ALL the other skin conditions that come with living in our harsh Canadian climate.
Each plant in this salve is sustainably and ethically collected at peak potency during late spring or summer, dried, and then solar-infused in organic oil. Each healing, botanical infused oil is then strained and combined with organic Alberta Beeswax.
Due to the seasonal nature of this product, limited quantities are available.
