A word from the creator: "From my experience with my own horses and dogs and the issues I found with inflamed and raw skin from flea bites, ticks, and eczema, I decided to make my own infusion, without having to rely on drugs or liver damaging prescriptions. I was told to use steroids, creams, drugs, etc. But I wanted an alternative solution from conventional medicine that wasn't harmful to my animal's liver and systems. One day out of desperation for one of my dogs that had a major reaction to a flea bite and had rubbed his skin raw, I spent weeks researching the healing properties of active biochemistry plant constituents from my prior years of studying herbal medicine. I wish I had taken before and after photos - the results were incredible; my dog's hair grew back, and the essential oils used in the formulation alleviated further itching and also acted as a deterrent to future parasites and itching. The salve soothed his dry and itchy skin and aided in his fungal and yeast infection which is very common in dogs. It also helped with my horse's mud fever caused by bacteria and dampness and provided a nourishing barrier with the beeswax, to prevent further irritation." Our formulation is created over weeks of cold-infusing organic herbs into Omega 3,6 & 9 rich oils. The constituents and healing properties of the plants seep into the cold oils without damaging any of the healing benefits. The oil, in a few weeks, goes from pale to a dark green colour. Cold-infusing by cooling down or freezing the herbs into the oil will ensure that the fragile medicinal properties within the leaves are not lost in the process. The only essential oils used after the herbal infusion and added to the Beeswax base are natural Lavender and Cedarwood. Do not use on skin then place hands back into the product. This can contaminate the balm by introducing bacteria from your hands. Please use gloves or disposable spoon etc. Please consult a vet first if any animal requires stitches, has an infection or requires surgical extraction or internal antibiotics. This salve is not an antibiotic or antiseptic. It is formulated for sensitive healing, cracked and flaky skin, inflamed skin, bacterial and yeast irritations and barrier protection. Please consult a vet if symptoms persist.
