Rash Be Gone Salve
This salve has won fans throughout Columbus for its emollient healing properties that eliminates those painful patches more quickly than most things folks have tried.
This salve used to be called "Eczema and Psoriasis". While this salve will not cure either condition (auto-immune diseases and allergic reactions manifesting through the skin require other additional treatments and possibly dietary restrictions- see "How to Use" section), it will ease inflammation, pain, itch, and regenerate new skin under the patch.
Rash-B-Gone comes in one ounce tins.
Ingredients (locally sourced whenever possible): Extra Virgin Olive Oil*, Oil of Rosehip Seed, Beeswax*, Calendula*, Comfrey Root*, Vitamin E Oil*, Essential Oils of Myrrh*, and Carrot Seed* (*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 destroy 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 salve is good for all rashes and skin eruptions. It was specifically formulated for eczema and psoriasis, but works for all rashes and hives. Use topically as often as needed on the affected area.
Psoriasis is an auto-immune disease that requires not just a topical treatment. Herbalists recommend immunomodulators, like Reishi mushroom, as well as other adaptogens and a lifestyle that eschews endocrine disrupting chemicals in body care, cleaning products, and gardening (see ewg.org for a list of endocrine disruptors).
Eczema is a skin eruption usually caused by internal (dietary) allergies/sensitivities. We recommend eliminating all dairy (milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream- everything!) from the diet for three months (this is the soonest you may see improvement for skin manifestations of food sensitivities.) in addition to a topical treatment for flare ups. It looks a lot like contact dermatitis, which is usually caused by external allergies (like laundry soap or latex gloves).
