Be it the result from too much sun, a mishap with a hot pan or as an aid for skin damaged, an herbal Burn Care Salve can significantly aid in healing.

If you suspect your burn is deeper than first degree consult your physician before treating it yourself.

This St. Johnswort based salve is also wonderful for your pets. Not all breeds have the skin protection of thick body fur and are susceptible to sun burn. Very healing for those tender noses and ears if over-exposured. Check with your veterinarian before using on cats. Essential oils can be toxic to a cat's liver if ingested.

First step for burned skin is to cool down the damaged skin with wet, cold compresses. Don't use ice water or ice cubes. Once the burn is cool, it is ok to apply applications of this soothing salve. You don't want to apply it before the skin is completely cooled or you'll be trapping in the heat. The advantage of a salve is that it stays put and provides protective coverage without needing a bandage, therefore the burn has needed exposure to the open air.

St. Johnswort is a summer solstice-blooming yellow wildflower that blooms around June 21st here in the Northeast. The buds and flowers contain hypericin, a treasure responsible for the plants reputation. You know you have the correct plant if the buds bleed red when squeezed.

Many healing balms contain the garden herb, Comfrey. The allantoin content in this living medicine chest contributes greatly to this salve.

Each of these herbs had been infused in cold-pressed extra virgin organic olive oil.

Coconut oil is wonderful for its cooling nature and often used for burn remedies for not only its beneficial properties but to provide the needed moisture.

Added are three very beneficial essential oils: lavender, rosemary and carrot seed.


Sunburn Care Salve is available in a choice of a 1/2 oz 1 oz 2 oz. or 4 oz. size plastic jar.

"My son and his girlfriend returned from the beach with the kind of sunburn that fast forwards every mother's fear of future skin cancer. They applied this sunburn salve twice the evening they came home, were still achy the next day, but within a week realized they never peeled! I'm not sure how many days they used the salve but it must be good stuff!"

"The cream I used for my sunburn was fantastic! I usually peel and I didn't at all! It gave my burning pain a soothing feeling. :D"
