Cedar Green Salve
The latest natural skin remedy in the Sweetlife Farm arsenol!
A formula derived from Pacific Northwest botanicals. Cedar Green Salve serves as an antifungal, antimicrobial ointment to heal and rebuild cracked, chapped or irritated skin, contact dermatitis or eczema.
Western Red Cedar is a powerful antimicrobial and the predominant ingredient in this healing salve; our native ancestors discovered long ago that its oils are the tree’s medicine to repel insects, molds, fungi, bacteria and viruses. We harvest branch tips in the fall when the aromatic oils are at their peak.
Cedar tips, along with calendula, jewelweed, California poppy and horsetail botanicals are infused into coconut, hemp, olive and almond oils. The carefully curated mixture is emulsified with cera bellina wax (a hydrophillic derivative of beeswax which has been heated and vacuum extracted) and cetyl alcohol (a fatty alcohol) to create a silky gel consistency to glide smoothly over irritated, rough skin.
