Healing Herbal Soap, Salve & Lip Balm

I have several types of healing soaps and salves at the market now. The basic Healing Herbal Salve is very popular and is healing rashes, eczema and other skin ailments! It contains a mix a 8 healing herbs that are either grown in my garden or harvested from the wild. They are hand dried and hand processed so you get only the best parts with no additives or preservatives. Natural oils, including coconut, are infused with the dried herbs and made into both salve and soap.

Usnea Soap and Salve

 


Usnea is a lichen that grows in the forest, usually near water. Though lichens appear to be single plants, they are really a combination of fungus and algae that grow together for their mutual benefit. 


I'm sure most of you have seen usnea and just didn't realize how valuable it is! It's often called "Old Man's Beard" and hangs in long bunches from high up in the trees. There are many tree lichen out there in the forest, some are toxic, so make sure you know what you are harvesting. 

Usnea is high in usnic acid so go lightly on tea with usnea, if you are sensitive to acid in foods. It is anti-viral, anti-biotic, anti-fungal. Usnic acid, which is the main medicinal ingredient, is not water soluble so is best used in oils, vinegars, or alcohol to make salves, soaps and tinctures.

More Peppermint Soap

Peppermint Soap, one of my favourites! Its invigorating and refreshing when you're tired, or not awake yet, and need a boost. I just made a fresh batch of peppermint soap today, blue, of course. My peppermint soap is always blue. 


I will have it for sale at the next Farmer's Market in the Elk's Hall on Saturday, January 8 (Our new location!). The Fort Nelson Farmer's Market is located in the Elk's Hall on the corner of 55th (Dump Road), across the highway from Lamplighters.
