- Razor burn
- Insect bites
- Diaper rash
To use: Rub a small amount onto the affected area with clean hands 2-3 times daily. Safe for dogs and cats as well!
Do not use on: Weeping wounds.
Calendula is a bright yellow and orange flower that has historically been considered as one of the best herbs for treating local skin problems. It is anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antimicrobial, and helps bring and retain hydration in your skin.
Plantain is a green-leafed, skin-healing ally. Commonly written off as a weed, plantain contains multiple antiseptic constituents useful for disinfecting wounds, and healing epithelial tissue by reducing inflammation non-suppressively. Plantain loves dry skin, bringing moisture and smoothness to areas in need. Similar to Comfrey, it contains the constituent allantoin, which promotes cell proliferation + tissue healing. Herbal skin actions: vulnerary (pain relieving), disinfectant/antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antihistamine, astringent/demulcent, emollient.
Yarrow is one of the oldest known botanicals known to humans, undoubtedly due to its multiple actions that promote healing in the skin. It fights against infection-causing bacteria, soothes the skin through its anti-inflammatory effects, restores moisture content, and promotes healing of cuts while reducing scarring. It also has an analgesic effect, providing mild pain relief and irritations while the healing process takes place.
Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is moisturizing, rich in vitamins and antioxidants, and helps fight bacteria that can disturb your skin’s health and appearance.
