Organic Herbal Salve
Chock full of soothing, certified organic herbs infused in a base of organic, extra virgin olive oil and unrefined beeswax, this salve is amazingly multi-purpose and therefore economical. Apply it to rashes, bug bites, wounds, dry, cracked skin, bruises, diaper rash and more!
St. John's wort has historically been known to help speed up the healing process and prevent scarring, Echinacea has a long history of success with venomous stings and bites and is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. Comfrey and yarrow both have astringent properties and have been used to promote cell regeneration and healing. Plantain is acclaimed for its ability to relieve bee stings, insect and spider bites and rashes. Grapefruit seed extract is an excellent anti-fungal agent.
Keep a jar of this on your counter top! It is safe for your children to grab and put on their frequent summer scratches, bites, and rashes.
This is a natural product, and it will soften and even liquify in heat. Keep in a cool place. If you want it to harden up fast, just put it in the fridge. Up here in Minnesota...it never melts.

bee sting pain gone
Posted by Linda Seibel on 5th Jul 2014
Today while hanging out the wash a bee decided to fly into my shoe as I was walking. Of course it stung me right in the foot. At first it wasn't too bad but in about one minute it really started to hurt, I ran inside and got out my salve and within just a few minutes the pain was gone. I've only been stung one other time when I was younger and I am pretty sure it hurt much longer. Love the results, I'm hoping to never be stung again but if I do I know right where to go! Thanks
So happy to have found this product!

I found the Apple Valley Natural Soap company through the post on this salve at Keeper of the Home blog. Based on that post and the reviews here, I bought two, one for the house and one for my purse. That was a good decision! We've only had it for a few days, but have already used it on bumps, bug bites, scratches and sun burned cheeks. It has soothed everything so far! Great to replace all the commercial anti-itch and "boo-boo" creams. I really appreciate knowing that what's in it is healing and helping my kids. It smells nice, too!
Powerful Healing Salve
Posted by Kim S. on 12th Jun 2014
This salve is amazing! Without a doubt the best we've found. My husband's hands get so rough during the winter with dry, red skin and deep, painful cracks. We've tried several creams, salves and lotions with little or no result. This past winter I purchased Appke Valley's Organic Herbal Salve with quite frankly low expectations. Oh my, was I happily surprised! Every night I rubbed this salve into my husband's hands. Within three days, his hands begin to heal. Within a week, they looked and felt amazing. On the days he worked outside, I would do a preventative treatment with the salve. Now that summer is upon is, I'm using it for scrapes, bug bites and all those skin issues that summer brings. My only (and only) complaint is the smell; it's a little strong. But who cares? It's worth it to have a natural and quick healing! I've recommended this and other AVS products to others.
Great Herbal Salve
Posted by Becky A. on 11th Jun 2014
I have used this salve mostly to treat sunburns. I was amazed at how it soothed the burn and relieved the discomfort, and also how quickly the burn healed. Also, I noticed there was little to no pealing of the skin.

Thank you so much for providing this great product. It didn't disappoint! I had gotten scratches while working outside in the yard, and when I put the salve on, they started healing right away. Thank you again.
Very soothing, quick results

I have rather sensitive skin which is irritated by quite a few things, including many natural ones. I tried a new naturally scented bar soap, and my hands were itching within a couple minutes. After 10 minutes of itching and faint red spots, I decided to try applying the herbal salve, and the itching stopped almost immediately and the redness quickly went away. I've also seen this work well on other rashes, including diaper rash. And because of the olive oil base, it moisturizes nicely too. It has a very "green" scent, but it doesn't linger long.

My husband works in a "uniform" which is scratchy and washed somewhere with who knows what. He complained of a rash on both lower legs. Viola almost gone with nightly application. Thank you
Great on burns/other
Posted by sandy gruhlke on 6th Feb 2014
Great on burns, better than aloe because it's almost impossible to find pure aloe in the stores anymore. We also love it on cuticles, small irritations on facial skin, and have even liked it on acne.
Soothing and Healing Herbal Salve
Posted by Shannon on 17th Jan 2014
This is my second purchase of the Apple Valley Organic Herbal Salve. I was quite surprised to find from my first purchase that the salve worked quickly to heal, soothe and protect my skin from abrasions, burns, itchy skin, etc . We use it daily and will always keep a little tub of it handy.

My baby has had the most stubborn, awful looking rash for several months--swollen red blisters and open sores. Already the rash has stumped two doctors and has been resistant to a variety of prescription topical and oral treatments. This salve has been the only thing that has actually made a difference. After applying it at every diaper change for two days, it is much less red, the sores are closing and the blisters are shrinking. I can't wait to see what other miracles this salve can work (and I'm buying several more pots so that I always have it on hand!).

I wish I had taken before and after pictures of the scratches my kitty gave me, so you could see just how well this stuff works! I had one set of scratches near my clavicle, and one set of scratches on my deltoid. I was fairly religious about putting this stuff on the clavicle scratches (once in the morning and once at night), but less so on the scratches on my shoulder (I didn't want to get the salve on my sleeve, but I also refused to wear bandages.) Well, I should have used it equally on both sites, because the scratch on my clavicle healed up beautifully in a few weeks with no scarring, and I still have a scar on my shoulder now, months later! This is also very soothing to put on bug bites, as it really helps to stop the itch. This will always be a part of my first aid kit!
Nature at it's Best!

I didn't realize I would have a need for this the day it arrived in the mail. Most of my large yard is a garden, so there is only a small portion that needs mowing. However, it always happens that river rock from the garden ends up on the lawn. And, when the lawn mower kicked up a rock and sent it flying into my leg, just above the knee, I thought I was going to die. I bruise easily and it takes forever for them to heal. However, I used the salve instead of the antibiotic cream with pain relief. And let me tell you, this stuff works BETTER. It helped the pain, swelling, bruising and the part of the wound that was actually open heal in record time. I am in love with the Herbal Salve. Thank you so much!
Most amazing stuff EVER!

My son got a gash on his cheek, and I applied this several times a day, and it healed up so quickly that even my husband noticed! :) I've also had great success using this on bug bites, sunburns, and diaper rash. It's my go-to salve when I have a skin problem that needs remedying!
I love green salve!
Posted by Andrea Smith on 30th May 2013
I have tried many green salves made by many companies, and this is up there with the best. I consider herbal salves to be an essential part of my first aid kit and turn to it when rashes, scratches, bites, burns, etc. turn up. I even purchased a small container so I could take some of this with me on my last vacation (and we USED it). Thankfully a little goes a long way. I like this salve because of it's rich, vibrant green, and it's slightly softer texture. In Alaska, I hate having to use my fingernails to dig into the salve I want to apply to my child's wound because the main oil solidified in the cool temperatures. This is always easily spreadable. I do not know how many infections our salve has prevented or owies healed in record time because I have no control to compare it to, but I trust this stuff implicitly and hope to always have some nearby.

I'll be honest, I was a little skeptic about how well this would really work but I thought I'd try it. My kids love it for their bug bites! We've always used an alcohol based rub on for bug bites in the past and my littler kids would cry at the sting and my big kids would complain. This salve works just as well at relieving the itch and there is no sting. My 3 yr. old especially loves it. It also worked really well on a long scrape my 9 yr. old had down his leg. It took all the redness out within 24 hours and healed very quickly. I must admit, I'm quite impressed and will continue to order and use the salve.

I love this product because it is all natural and gentle enough to use for anything from scrapes to diaper rashes. I have even used it on what has seemed to be a fungal diaper rash, as I would prefer to go natural instead of using clotrimazole. It did a great job! Almost done with my first container... Time to order again!

This salve is absolutely one of the best products I have used. Having quite sensitive skin there have been no untoward issues with this salve. It works very well on bug bites, scratches, scrapes and just plain ol' dry spots.
Perfect for big bites!

Our family has been using this on bug bites this summer and it works so well. Helps with the itch and healing!
Posted by Diana on 9th Jul 2012
I've been using this salve for over a year now and it is, by far, the best ointment I've found for my children's bottoms. It takes care of any sort of rash or redness within 1 application!
But we use it for all kinds of things too - bug bites, cuts, scrapes, small burns. It's been awesome to have on hand with so many small children running around!
Great for bug bites
Posted by Stephanie on 9th Jul 2012
My toddler has very bad reactions to bug bites. This salve helps the swelling to go down and makes the itch go away so she doesn't want to scratch them all the time.
Best Diaper Rash Cream EVER!
Posted by Rachel on 24th May 2012
Cleared my son's diaper rash right up, like nothing else I've used! And I have 3 kids, I've tried it all. Even the hard to get rid of yeast bumps were gone overnight. AMAZING!
A must have!
Posted by Debra on 6th Apr 2012
We really enjoy having this around for bites, burns, and cuts. It's a must have!
Posted by Micah on 3rd Apr 2012
My children beg for Herbal Salve to be put on all their scrapes and bumps. My 2 year old "finds" many places for me to put it on him whenever any of his siblings ask for some. I keep it on the bar in my kitchen so I have easy access to it. It has a bit of liquid on the top (not much and it is warm in our house) so if the tub is laid on its side, it might leak out a little; it hasn't been a problem for us. We use Herbal Salve every day!

This is the best natural itch reliever. My dad has psoriasis and I gave him some for Christmas. He says it's the best thing he's ever used for itching. It's great for bug bites and cuts/scrapes.
