Exactly why I don't have a page for salves on my web site, I couldn't tell you. Simple to make and highly effective, it took me making a salve for my own issues to realize I need to put these on the web site. Hopefully I'll get that up and running in the next few days but, of course, revising web pages is a major hassle! I'll definitely include the salve I made for hemorrhoids but will also have some with single herbal ingredients as well. Offhand, I can see an offering of salves for things like respiratory issues, skin conditions, burns, muscle ache relief, and headaches and single herbal blends like calendula, yarrow, lavender, lemon balm, chamomile, etc. If there's anything you'd particularly like to see included, let me know, otherwise I'll be creating on my own and hoping something hits your fancy when you take a peek.
I've always thought the subject of hemorrhoids was embarrassing and something no one would ever admit to, much less discuss freely. However, having recently been diagnosed with same, I turned to my trusty herbs to produce a salve that would help. Boy does it! I put together a salve with a base of Evening Primrose, Avocado, Safflower and Olive oils, infused it with Calendula, Chamomile, Witch Hazel Bark, Plantain, Yarrow and St. John's Wort and then gave it the salve texture with some beeswax. This gave instant relief and it lasted for hours. You can bet I'll be adding this for sale on the web site soon. I'll probably change the oils a bit because it would be too expensive otherwise but since I've heard from the gastroenterologist that the majority of people have hemorrhoids, I think it's high time the subject wasn't so taboo to discuss ... and treat successfully.
I worked on a custom order today - 75 light body lotions, 75 tea tins with 3 bags of Lisa's Sleep Blend and 75 lip balms. The lip balms are Lavender/Spearmint - yummy. Lisa's Sleep Blend tea has Chamomile, Rose petals & buds, Wood Betony, Spearmint, Valerian and Allspice. The light body lotion has Mandarin, Lavender, Ylang Ylang and Spikenard in Shea butter, Sunflower oil and Jojoba. Lots of work but the best part is that there's always a little left over from any batch I make, and I'm the lucky recipient!
One advantage of working in hospice is that I get to play with all the therapy dogs. This is Asher, a Corgi.
