The Surly Herbalist is not only interested in nourishing human skin but she does own two Chinese Crested hairless doggies who need very specialized skin care as well. Skin Soother Salve for pets is made with an infusion of organic calendula petals and rich emollient kokum butter to soothe and protect delicate skin and keep them feeling soft but not greasy. You'll only need a small amount but one try and you'll probably want to use it on yourself as well! We've kept this formulation free of fragrance or essential oils because your pet's nose is far more sensitive than ours (cats are 14 times that of a human and dogs at about 40). Not to mention most essential oils are a big ole no-no for cats
Directions: rub small amount in thy hands & massage over freshly bathed skin. Put it not in thine eyes or on broken skin. If it be irritating, use it not! - FOR TOPICAL USE ONLY
** CALENDULA IS SAFE AND BENEFICIAL TO USE ON ANIMALS HOWEVER, AS WITH ANY AND ALL HERBAL PRODUCTS, CHECK WITH YOUR VET PRIOR TO USE IF YOUR PET IS PREGNANT OR LACTATING!**
This skin soother salve is 100% vegan and made with natural kokum butter. Crystallization may sometimes happen due to the nature of natural butters. We do not add chemicals or beeswax additives to prevent this. If your product starts to feel grainy, simply warm in the microwave (without the lid) for bursts of 15 seconds until fully melted. Then pop in the fridge until fully cooled.
Contains: olea europaea (olive) oyl infused with organic calendula officinalis (calendula) petals, organic virgin cocos nucifera (coconut) oyl, garcinia indica (kokum) butter, behentrimonium methosulfate (and) cetearyl alcohol, emulsifying wax
From the earliest of times there was the role of the healer. The herbalist. The "Wise Woman". She possessed knowledge of healing herbs and botanicals which was handed down from previous generations back. As a healer, the wise woman was usually the first stop for the average person when they were sick or had a health issue to address. Of course in the Medieval and Renaissance era, the wise woman may have been called a witch or a heretic and discouraged from practicing her art as women were not allowed a profession in that time. This of course would make any herbalist surly as hell!
It is up to us to cultivate our garden.
