Boo Boo Balm
As a society, we overuse antibiotics. They are in hand purifiers, overprescribed, and even in plastics! This contributes to bacterial resistance and has led to catastrophic effects: we now have MRSA and other antibiotic resistant strains running rampant (outside of hospitals)! Use Boo Boo Balm instead. The herbs and essential oils used kill bacteria, viruses, fungus, and yeast without adding to this problem.
This is an effective way to prevent infection that not only does not contribute to this problem, and it is petroleum free!
Boo Boo Balm comes in half ounce paperboard sticks for ease of application.
Ingredients (locally sourced whenever possible): Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Raw Coconut Oil, Beeswax*, Vitamin E Oil*, Oregon Grape Root*, Goldenseal Root*, Thyme*, Essential Oils of Tea Tree*, Myrrh*, and Thyme* (*indicates organic)
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:
This is a salve is ideal to use in place of an antibiotic ointment. Kids love it's "magic properties" You can use it on cuts and scrapes as well as burns and blisters. Until a scab forms, please keep your wound covered. After the scab forms, you can continue using Boo Boo Balm to soften the scab and keep it from coming off before it's ready.
