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, 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.

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.
