Petroleum Jelly has found its far superior replacement. This is one of the most used products here at the Fat and the Moon household. St. John’s Wort and homegrown Calendula, Comfrey and Yerba Mansa infused sunflower oil have been used by our ancient grannies and grandaddies for their healing and regenerating medicinal properties that are both gentle and effective. Calendula is great for supporting the bod with slow-healing cuts and stimulates the production of collagen at wound sites which minimizes scarring. St John’s Wort works to treat cuts and burns. Yerba Mansa is a less known herb, native to these here parts in CA- the leaves promote skin repair. Comfrey is known for its freakish ability to close open skin- so a smaller dose does it in the All Salve to allow enough time to kick out lingering bacteria.
This salve is great for scrapes, cuts, burns and bites as well as chapped and cracked hands. We also use it as a lip balm, and a knee and elbow softener.
