Perfect for all insect bites, mosquitoes, bees, hornets, black flies, etc…. It can also be used as lip balm or a general skin salve on your hands, feet, cuticles, etc….very healing for cuts and scrapes!
The real star in this salve is the plantain which I sustainably wildcrafted from our chemical-free farm here in Maine. Plantain is my favorite herb for bug (insect) bites and bee and hornet stings. It is so soothing, eases the pain and itching and helps it to heal faster. It is infused into organic hemp seed oil, along with organic lavender and organic chamomile, both very soothing herbs to bug bites and stings.
Available in a few different container options: 1, 2, and 4 oz plastic white jar, 1 oz glass jar, or a 1/2 oz plastic white twist up tube (this is a mix between a large lip balm tube and small deodorant tube)
Peppermint essential oil is known to: provide itch relief, keep insects away, stimulate blood circulation, be antibacterial, and more.
Lavender essential oil is known to be: antimicrobial, soothing to bites, healing for burns and scars, and more.
Hemp Seed Oil is known to: dramatically decrease skin dryness to alleviate itching and irritation. It is also known to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which help sooth bites.
Organic Beeswax is known to: protect against irritants while still allowing the skin to breathe, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral (for skin irritation and bites/stings).
Olive Oil is known to: be a good skin cell regenerator (because it is high in oleic acid), attract external moisture to the skin, & soothe inflamed skin.
Castor Oil is known to: be soothing and lubricating (it’s rich in fatty acids) and to reduce scars. It is a humectant that attracts moisture to the skin .
T-50 Vitamin E is known to: be a preservative to prevent the oils from going rancid so it will last a long time.
To Use: Apply to insect bites and stings as soon as possible and apply as needed. Can also be used as a lip balm or salve for skin.

I have been studying herbs and creating herbal apothecary items for over 21 years. I create everything with loving intention and healing energy.
I use the finest ingredients I can find for my body care products. Organic and local as much as possible. A lot of the herbs are grown and/or wild crafted from right here on our sustainable farm. I only use herbs and essential oils to add fragrance – no chemical fragrance oils.
All body care and apothecary products are created in small batches by hand (by me!).
