Olive Oil contains vitamin E, antioxidants, and compounds such as squalene and oleocanthal which help nourish and repair skin. Olive oil is non-toxic, anti-microbial, and hypoallergenic.
The healing, calming and soothing properties of Olive Oil nourish, soothe, moisturise and repair all skin types. Unscented with no colouring agents or additives, our original Herbal Salve is ideal for dry skin, eczema, rashes, bites and burns. It's gentle on babies also.
Our Signature Botanical Infusion | The botanical nutrients found in our Herbal Salve Formulas are denser and of a higher quality due to the signature in-house Botanical Infusion method we use. The 6-week process begins with nutrient-rich wild-harvested mullein and Sugarloaf Cottage organic lavender, rosemary and rose. Through a methodical, temperature-controlled, six-week extraction process, every ounce of nutrition is captured and optimally infused in virgin olive oil. The skin recognises the botanical molecules, and puts the nutrients to work, supporting its natural ability to heal and renew.
How to Use | Apply to dry areas of the skin that need deep hydration as well as to affected areas on the face and body to reduce eczema, dermatitis, dark pigmentation and pre-mature ageing. Also, a soothing salve to help relieve sunburn and can be used as a nourishing all-over face and body moisturiser, makeup remover or remedy for cracked heels. It is also useful for bug bites, nappy rash, scrapes and grazes. Store below 28°C and refrigerate if required. Discontinue if you develop any irritation.

Herbal Salves vs Herbal Balms
