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.

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, 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.

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!

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!

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 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.
