Salve to Quiet the Storm (the Base)

 

Salve to Quieti the Storm

Salve to Quiet the Storm is the base for all our products, except for the sugar scrubs. It is our own family recipe, combining the goodness of calming herb infused olive oil with moisturizing, healing oils and butters. 

 What's in it?

Calendula (Calendula Officinalis)

A potent yet gentle herb with many uses. It helps maintain healthy skin, promote minor wound healing, and calm skin inflammation. Those allergic to plants in the Asteracea family may be sensitive to calendula.

Lavender (Lavandula Angustifolia)

Well-known flower whose use dates back to ancient times. Its aroma has been shown to have calming properties, while topical application has antibacterial, antifungal, and antiseptic effects.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Olea Europaea)

A widely used, versatile oil. It is a good choice for skin healing infusions, as it is very stable. It is also rich in oleic, omega 3, and omega 6 fatty acids, which help maintain healthy skin function.

Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera)

 

Coconut oil is very mild, making it suitable for sensitive or inflamed  skin. It is high in saturated fatty acids (medium chain triglycerides),  and is an excellent moisturizer. It helps serve as a protective layer for the skin, decreasing moisture loss.

Shea Butter (Vitellaria Paradoxa)

Also known as Butyrospermum parkii is the vegetable fat from the nut of the Karite tree. It is rich in vitamins A, E, and F, and is an intensive moisturizer. Shea not only hydrates and protects skin, it helps heal and rejuvenate damaged skin. Not recommended for those with a nut allergy.

Sea Buckthorn Oil (Hippophae Rhamnoides)

Berries and/or seeds are used to make this oil, which has a unique composition of essential fatty acids, vitamins, and other nutrients. Its restorative and regenerative properties help damaged and injured skin heal.

Plantain Oil (Plantago Major)

Plantain leaves have anti-inflammatory properties that help heal inflamed skin and minor wounds. As plantain oil  also soothes itching, it is a good choice for skin irritation and lesions such as insect bites. 

Lemon Essential Oil (Citrus Limon)

Citrus limon not only has as a fresh aroma that is energizing and uplifting, but also has antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
