Combining several herbs used to relieve itching and promote healing and infusing them into an oil, this salve is a need for any outdoor first-aid kit.
Arnica is used externally for treatment of physical trauma, sprains, bruising. Use immediately after injury to prevent, relieve and reduce swelling, bruises and pain. External use only. Not to be used when pregnant.
Calendula was traditionally used for its anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and healing properties. Calendula oil is often used to aid in lessening scarring after wounds heal and after stitches are removed.
Chickweed tincture has traditionally been used to nourish the kidneys, bladder and liver, as well as for irritated skin conditions and cooling the body during fevers or hot flashes. Dissolves cysts, cools fevers, infections, hot flashes, rheumatic pain, decreases appetite.
Plantain has been used in inflammation of the skin, malignant ulcers, intermittent fever, etc., and as a vulnerary, and externally as a stimulant application to sores. Applied to a bleeding surface, the leaves are of some value in arresting hemorrhage, but they are useless in internal hemorrhage, although they were formerly used for bleeding of the lungs and stomach, consumption and dysentery. The fresh leaves are applied whole or bruised in the form of a poultice. Rubbed on parts of the body stung by insects, nettles, etc., or as an application to burns and scalds, the leaves will afford relief and will stay the bleeding of minor wounds.
Two ounce tin.
