Rocky Mountain Bliss Balm and Desert Chaparral Salve

So in the spirit of making things happen, I decided to nudge the energy in the right direction by whipping up some lovely new salves. I need a few bucks to pay for gas to NM this weekend for the Shaman's Path gathering, and enough for a little food in the coming week, so I'm offering these special salves to all my lovely readers!

As always, the beloved chaparral salve, so helpful for any number of skin conditions, especially the hot, red, itchy and infected kind. Dry irritated eczema, psoriasis, insect stings, cuts, scrapes, burns and the like. The all purpose salve of the desert. Made with sun infused fresh chaparral in olive oil and beeswax. This is the salve I get calls for from as far as New York and Chicago. Get it while you can. It will go fast!
I have four 5o ml jars of this salve available for 10$ each (plus shipping).

I also have a special salve made with the nicest oils made with fresh wildcrafted mountain plants, Yarrow flowers, Monarda leaf, Rose flowers and St Johns Wort, in olive and sesame oil, shea butter and beeswax- I'm calling it Rocky Mountain Bliss Balm, since all the herbs were harvested during my time in the Rockies in Colorado. The times I spent collecting herbs and making medicines were few, but they were indeed blissful, so share some of the bliss!
This is a beautiful red salve, with antiseptic, analgesic, antiinflammatory and astringent wound healing medicine. This salve is more appropriate for wounds with a tendency to infection and inflammation, since there is no comfrey included. (You should always be careful about putting salve on an infected wound as the wax can sometimes seal infection in.) This is cooling and soothing to inflammations and antiseptic, with mild pain relieving effects. Give this one a go for summer sunburns, insect bites, heat rash and minor cuts and scrapes. The yarrow, rose and monarda are also excellent blood moving medicines, so this salve can be of help in stagnant bruises and contusions and sprains as well. A nice versatile pot of medicine eh?

I have three 2 oz tins for $12 each (plus shipping) and one 50 ml jar for $10 (plus shipping)

If you are interested in either of these salves, contact me and I'll get one in the mail to you. Payment can be sent via paypal or check in the mail. As always, I appreciate your support, and hope you enjoy the fruits of my labor of love.

Hi Darcey! Although I make my own Chaparral oil here from dried herb (none fresh in CT) and it works very well - I LOVE yours especially! It works even better,(you probably use fresh plant?) and has been a saving grace for my cat who gets odd infections on his leg and sometimes abdomen. It works wonders every time I use it! It's the best.

Awww thanks! Yes, I'm very partial to fresh chaparral oil. Dried works, but...fresh is so much better! I guess i'm not very humble about my opinion though.
I'm glad to hear it works so well for you!
