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 economical. Apply it to rashes, bug bites, sun burn, 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 & Yarrow 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. Calendula is impressive because of its ability to speed healing, improve the appearance of the skin, lower inflammation, and protect the skin against infections. Rosemary has natural antiseptic properties, which makes it a superior disinfectant for our skin. It can also help protect skin cells from damage often caused by the sun and free radicals. 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 liquefy in heat. Keep in a cool place.

This salve works so well I almost couldn't belive it. My daughter had a cut on her knee that was struggling to heal and with 2 applications it looked so mich better. I will never go another summer without this on hand!
THANK YOU for bringing this back. It is such a blessing to be able to treat cuts and scrapes naturally.
I have used this salve for a couple of years mainly to treat sunburns, and when I use it, the sunburn usually heals quickly and there is very little pealing. I was thankful I had some on hand when recently undergoing radiation therapy after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Radiation is very damaging to the skin, and because of my fair skin they were preparing me for an intense reaction. I added the Organic Herbal Salve to the regimen I followed as I attempted to prevent as much damage to my skin as possible. I was thoroughly impressed with the results, along with the staff at the radiation clinic. While I did experience some tenderness and redness for about two weeks, it did not get nearly as bad as the doctor predicted and healed very quickly once my radiation therapy ended. I highly recommend this product!
This product is great!Worked on rashes and my sons winter psoriasis.
This is so great i put it on at night before going to bed and keeps my hands and arms so soft!
Used this on a bump on my shin and it's almost gone along with the discoloration from the bruise as well. Suggestion: I would love it if the packaging listed all the uses of this salve. Being new to this product, I had to go online to read the reviews and learn what I could use this salve for.
My daughter has very sensitive skin and breaks out with psoriasis if she uses any fragrance-based products. I received this gem of a product and in a day, the psoriasis on her face significantly went away! LOVE IT!!
I have chronic dermatitis on my hands and I am allergic to ingredients in most hand products I have tried. I have been using this herbal salve as hand cream every night and I have had no irritation, no rash, just soft lovely hands. This salve has amazing healing ingredients and is a bargain because you get a lot for the price and I will buy it again when I run low.
Desperate for relief from winter skin and my baby's sore nose from being sick I bought this. And voula! Cracked hands- cured! Baby's sore nose- cured! (Bonus-only thing I could put on her nose she wouldn't fight!) Love this stuff and see it lasting a long time!
Sometimes my skin dries out (living in a dry climate), and the Herbal Salve has been very helpful in keeping my skin healthy.
My son works all day landscaping and this is the only thing that helps with chaffing
I love it that I now have this anazing natural ointment to use on myself, my husband and my dogs without having to worry about chemicals!
I've only had it for a short time, but the kids have used it several times and they now, ask for it before even a Band-Aid.
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
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
Our family has been using this on bug bites this summer and it works so well. Helps with the itch and healing!
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!
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.
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!
We really enjoy having this around for bites, burns, and cuts. It's a must have!
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.
