Jewel of a Salve
Formerly known as "Poison Ivy & Bug Bite", this salve has helped many a Columbus gardener and hiker! (Locally sourced) Jewelweed is nature's Poison Ivy antidote and we double this salve's effectiveness with Plantain- which works out toxins from the skin (which is great for both the plant's oils and venom from mosquitoes and other parasitic insects).
This salve comes in one ounce tins.
Ingredients (locally sourced whenever possible): Extra Virgin Olive Oil* infused with Jewelweed* and Plantain*, Beeswax*, Vitamin E Oil*, EO of Myrrh*
We use only local sustainable beeswax in our salves. The beekeepers we patronize care about pollinator health and survival above all else. The bees need our help- so support your local small beekeeper! We do not use vegan waxes in our formulas, because many are sourced from the rainforest (where they clear the earth's lungs to make the way for this crop) or extracted using harsh toxic solvents, which is bad for you and the planet. Beeswax is renewable, sustainable, and medicinal.
How to Use:
Apply liberally to a bug bite or Poison Ivy rash when you get them- this salve can also help prevent Poison Ivy if you apply it proactively on areas where clothing meets- such as wrists above a gloveline where it meets a sleeve.
