Healing Salve

Healing Salve

Plainspeak: For skin wounds.


Flowerly Overindulgence: I try and refrain from ancedotal evidence whenever possible, but this is absolutley my favorite product, and my personal results with it have been spectacular.  My attempt at conveying the incredible nature of this salve feel somewhat curbed, as I can't find a combination of words that accuratley coagulate my enthusiasm.  Most of my products aren't essential items, they're focused on anti-aging, and it's somewhat of a luxury to worry about aging.  But everyone gets cuts and scrapes, and skin infections can get very nasty very fast, so I feel an obligation to get this into everyone's cabinet.

    Wash your hands! Always wash your hands before treating wounds. 

    Shipping to hot areas:  This salve melts at about 90 degrees, so shipping to hot areas can be problematic.  In such instances, the lotion will be chilled and insulated and should go unmelted, provided it doesn't have to sit for hours in a hot mailbox.   If it does melt, it's still perfectly fine to use.

    Allergy test:  Always allergy test skincare products before you use them!  Rub a little bit on your inner bicep, and wait for 30 minutes.  It shouldn't hurt, turn red or break out.

    Usage Notes: Unless your'e getting wounded all the time, this jar will last you between 4-10 years.  You're going to want to follow certain protocals

    1.  Keep it in a cool dark place with the lid on tight

    2.  Don't get the salve out of the jar with your fingers, use a clean spoon or some type of instrument so that you don't introduce any pathogens.


    In 2015 I got a rather innocuous scrape on my thigh.  I didn't take care of it, which was normal for me.  It got infected and it was sore and hurt for a couple of weeks, but eventually healed up on its own.  Afterward, there was an area of my skin about the size of a grapefruit that was numb.  I asked my dermatologist about it, and he said the infection probably damaged some nerves and that the feeling may or may not ever come back.  Not long after, my son got a staph infection, which healed up fine, but it was scary nonetheless.  Over the next few years, I was transformed from someone who didn't know anything about wound healing and never even paid attention to my own wounds, to someone who took meticulous care of them.  

    When I'm coming up with a formulation, so much time and energy is spent researching and planning and sourcing, that when the time comes to actually make and test the product it's really exciting.  The day finally comes to make the salve, and I make it, but I there's nothing to test in on.  It felt truly odd to be kind of excited for my next injury, and I had no idea that later that night I would receive the worst flesh wound I'd had in my entire life.  

    I'm at work, and a rusty nailhead was sticking out of a board, and it caught my nipple as I moved quickly past.  Initially, I typed a much more descriptive account of the injury in this space, but it's kind of gross and not really necessary, suffice it to say that my nipple was ripped.  It was not exactly how I envisioned testing the salve I made earlier that day, but still, it was probably the perfect opportunity.  I applied the salve 5-6 times a day, and over the next week, I was so astounded by how fast it was healing that I would just stand in the mirror and stare at it.  It was like I couldn't believe what I was seeing.  So far I've had 2 other people report the same thing.  Hoping to grow that to 2 million or so.  

    An update on my leg, as of writing this (March 26, 2021) that area of my skin is still numb, although I think the feeling is coming back because I get 'pins and needles' sometimes, and sometimes it feels like it's on fire (although that's only happened 3 times, they've all been this month).  It feels so weird when I touch it, as I can only 'feel it' in my hand and not my leg, the first few years after the injury I would rub it all the time, and even to this day if you hang out with me for more than an hour you'll probably see me reach down and rub my hand over the outside of my left thigh.
