Panacea was a minor goddess in Greek mythology but her name survives today as a term used for a cure-all or remedy for all ills or diseases. Panacea means "heal-all" and the goddess personified healing through herbs. In the Middle Ages, the name was applied to a mythical herb supposed to possess a cure-all quality. Some herbs that have been considered panaceas include mistletoe, yarrow, and valerian.
This salve, is specifically meant to help heal and protect the ends of hair. Although there is no way to mend split ends, this butter will help damaged hair by smoothing the cuticle, helping to keep dry ends moisturized, and prevent protein loss.
Post-Shower End Protection: Rub a pea-sized dollop between the palms. Starting at the very ends of towel-dried hair, press palms gently together and slide over the ends of the hair. Repeat as necessary, starting up higher on the length of the hair each time until palms are clean of salve. If hair appears greasy when dry, use a smaller amount next time and apply carefully, being mindful to spread the salve evenly. With only such a small amount needed, this jar will last you a very long time!
Deep Treatment: Apply liberally to length of damp or dry hair, let sit under shower cap for 1-2 hours. Wash.

- Certified Organic Shea Butter- Shea butter is an excellent emollient, meaning that it helps smooth down the cuticle of hair, meaning fewer tangles and less breakage. An upraised cuticle also allows precious moisture to escape from the hair, smoothing the cuticle helps keeps moisture within the hair shaft.
- Herbal Infusion of Rooibos- A flowering plant and a natural hair conditioner, it’s not only great as tea, but also fantastic for your hair. In a study commissioned by a processor of rooibos for use in cosmetic applications, and carried out by an independent laboratory in France, rooibos was perceived to positively affect the hair and 63 percent considered their hair had become smoother and more shiny.
- Pure Refined Coconut Oil- Damaged hair is often protein deficient, and coconut oil is the only oil tested and proven to penetrate the shaft of the hair and reduce protein loss, helping to stop further damage and keep hair strong.
Evening Primrose Oil– Evening Primrose Seed Oil is pressed the seeds of the Evening Primrose plant, Oenothera biennis. The yellow flowers only open in the evening, hence their common name. Evening Primrose Seed Oil is a rich source of gamma linoleic acid, an Omega 6 fatty acid and nourishes the scalp, hair, and even your nails.
Nettle-Infused Oil– Fixed or essential oils are not obtained from this plant but extracts are produced, although not by distillation. The plant, organically grown, is macerated in virgin olive oil to produce nettle oil which contains the lipid soluble constituents. Used for treating eczema and other conditions causing itching of the skin and is natural deep cleanser useful for oily skin and hair. Nettle is also said to promote hair growth.
- Vitamin B5- This critical vitamin helps makes hair more manageable, softer, and shinier.
Horsetail (Shavegrass, Equisetum arvense)– Horsetail, not to be confused with cat-tail, is possibly the most abundant source of silica in the plant kingdom, helping to keep hair strong. Many people believe that horsetail can help speed up hair growth. Some of the ways to take horsetail is to drink it in your tea, take it in capsule form or apply it directly to the scalp and hair.
Burdock Root(Arctium lappa)- Contains mucilage and starches that soothes irritated skin and membranes and is one of the most effective herbs for promoting hair growth and reducing the amount of hair shed.
Unfortunately this is a necessity so bear with me while I go through this. I hope you will use common sense and thoroughly research the herbs and oils in my products before you use them, but research is no substitute for seeking the advice of a licensed practitioner.

The Importance of Allergen Testing:
Although our products are made with all natural ingredients, many people are allergic to natural ingredients such as certain plants, nuts, and oils. An ingredient that is very mild and soothing for one person can be an allergen for another! Each product description on our website includes a complete list of ingredients. Please read through all ingredients listed. People who have food allergies are not always allergic to the same items in skin care products. In case you are in doubt do an "allergy patch test."
Allergy Patch Test:
Apply a small amount of item you are testing* on the upper part of your inner arm (at the crook of the elbow) and cover it with a bandage. Choose a time of day where you can leave the patch test in place for least 24 hours without getting it wet. If you are sensitive to any of the ingredients, a reaction such as reddening, burning, itching, or other irritation, should occur within twenty-four hours of application. If you don't see or feel any reaction, the preparation is probably safe to use. (See note under Allergic contact dermatitis.)
*If you are testing herbs, mix a small amount of herbs with water to make a paste. Apply the herbal paste for the patch test.
Why Patch Test? Patch testing is a way of identifying a substance that causes contact dermatitis (inflammation of the skin). There are two types of contact dermatitis: irritant contact dermatitis and allergic contact dermatitis.
Irritant contact dermatitis: An irritant reaction does not involve the immune system. It is most pronounced immediately after the patch is removed and fades over the next day. Although a substance that causes an irritant reaction may exacerbate skin conditions such as eczema, the reaction will not get worse with repeated exposure to the irritant.
Allergic contact dermatitis: An allergic reaction is due to substance called an allergen and occurs only in those who are allergic to that particular substance. These reactions involve the immune system. Since an allergic reaction may take a few days to develop, if you are an allergic type person it is important to keep an eye on the patch area for a few days after the patch is removed before using the product. A substance that causes an allergic reaction should be avoided completely. The more times the skin is exposed to the substance, the worse the allergic reaction can become.
