Leigh's Bees Salve
This product is amazing! It's my very first creation and my best seller. I have been perfecting this recipe for a long time, striving to make a superb healing salve. The ingredients are only the best and are hand-made in small batches to ensure top quality. The salve is hand poured into clear, glass containers and labeled with my handmade label. We offer our regular salve and salve with extra honey. The salve labeled as "extra honey" contains more honey that you can really feel on your skin for a quicker result. They all smell amazing and will make your skin feel at its best. Warning- Dogs LOVE this stuff!!!!!
Summer Vs. Winter:
So! You may be wondering, "What's the difference between the two salves?" I have sent my salve to friends living in warmer climates, only to find out that it melts to a complete liquid!!! They still love it and use it, but I wanted to create a salve with a more solid base to prevent it from melting so easily. So, I created my Summer Salve, which has the same ingredients as my Winter Salve, except contains more beeswax. Although won't easily melt, the salve will still do so if kept in a super hot environment. We recommend storing the salve in a cool place for best results, or even in the refrigerator! My friends in Vermont also love the Summer Salve for summertime when it gets really hot, as well as birthdays during those hot months.
- Certified Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil- Why unrefined? It doesn't go through the same processing as refined does, such as high levels of heating and extensive filtering methods. After experimenting with both refined and unrefined in our salves, unrefined was the clear choice. Refined was just dead to us, and didn't really smell as nice or as strong as the unrefined.
- Certified Organic Unrefined Olive Oil- Basically the same reasons that we use the unrefined coconut oil.
- Beeswax and Honey- Both come from our very own beehives, which we care for only through natural methods. The beeswax is purified by hand and our honey is extracted though hand pressing and straining. Our busy bees make this salve truly unique and healing. The honey is the most important ingredient to me in this salve, which is why it is hand stirred in each individual jar to provide an equal distribution of the honey.
- The Herbs (Calendula, Dandelion Leaf, Comfrey, Nettle)- All of our herbs in all of our products are grown, cared for, and harvested by my team and I on my property. We only use organic and biodynamic methods, and only use hand tools when dealing with our herbs. It doesn't get much better than that!
Apply Leigh’s Bees Salve directly to dry skin areas or over entire body immediately after showering, when skin is most susceptible to drying. It can also be applied to sooth and renew irritated skin or cuts that are in the healing process.
