Boo Boo Balm

As a society, we overuse antibiotics. They are in hand purifiers, overprescribed, and even in plastics! This contributes to bacterial resistance and has led to catastrophic effects: we now have MRSA and other antibiotic resistant strains running rampant (outside of hospitals)! Use Boo Boo Balm instead. The herbs and essential oils used kill bacteria, viruses, fungus, and yeast without adding to this problem.
This is an effective way to prevent infection that not only does not contribute to this problem, and it is petroleum free!
Boo Boo Balm comes in a one ounce tin.
We use only local sustainable beeswax in our salves. The beekeepers we patronize care about pollinator health and survival above all else. The bees need our help- so support your local small beekeeper! We do not use vegan waxes in our formulas, because many are sourced from the rainforest (where they clear the earth's lungs to make the way for this crop) or extracted using harsh toxic solvents, which is bad for you and the planet. Beeswax is renewable, sustainable, and medicinal.
(Real) Ingredients: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Raw Coconut Oil, Beeswax*, Vitamin E Oil*, Confrey root*, Thyme*, Essential Oils of Tea Tree* and Myrrh* (*indicates organic)
This is a salve is ideal to use in place of an antibiotic ointment. Kids love it’s “magic properties” You can use it on cuts and scrapes as well as burns and blisters. Until a scab forms, please keep your wound covered. After the scab forms, you can continue using Boo Boo Balm to soften the scab and keep it from coming off before it’s ready.
How to Use Herbal Supplements (Generally Speaking)
Herbal remedies, supplements, and tonics are fundamentally different from pharmaceuticals (and we like it that way). They are designed to restore your body and its systems to homeostasis gently- working with your body.
We post basic dosage guidelines, but keep in mind if you have more body mass or a faster metabolism than the average bear, you may need to take a larger dose than indicated. If there are hard-and-fast limitations on how often you can take the product, it will be listed on the package. Most can be used up to six times daily without problems (but we doubt that you would need to do that).
Remember, there are no “magic bullets” in life, and any product (herbal, pharmaceutical, or otherwise) claiming 100% success without knowing you, your constitution, and your lifestyle is lying and trying to get into your wallet. Often, herbalists (and MDs) need to try several products before we find the one that works for your unique biochemistry.
Feel free to email us if the product didn’t quite do the job, we can recommend another that could do the trick. We are blessed with many plants that have the same action in the body- and often it’s just a matter of finding the right one for you.
