Ingredients: olive oil infused with herbs of comfrey, calendula, echinacea, st. john’s wort, beeswax
Comfrey: is the base herb we use in the salve, and it’s well-known for it’s ability to heal wounds of all kinds.
Calendula: an herb which can boost the healing rate on a wound and to prevent infection.
Echinacea: has anti-biotic properties to promote healing.
St. John’s Wort: mostly known as an anti-depressent herb, but surprisingly has pain-relieving properties.
Note: there is some controversy over the herb Comfrey. Our family has grown it’s own comfrey plants for the last 12+ years and have never had one problem, internally or externally. Basically, in my understanding, you would have to consume about 3x your body weight every day for about a year and a half in order for comfrey to have a negative effect. Below is a link that is balanced and informative on the subject. Either way, please don’t let us talk you into anything; do your own research and/or speak to a doctor if you have doubts about comfrey.
