We put together a little guide, to help you choose the salve that’s right for you.
The Salves are medicinal herbal infusions for everyday wellness, formulated with hemp paraffin and 1000mg of full spectrum hemp extract. The paraffin in the formula helps seal in moisture, making the blends extra rich and emollient, and quickly absorbing. Below we featured our two new additions – the rosemary blend + comfrey blend.
We found that it works better than CBD isolate, because the isolate doesn’t contain the rest of the cannabinoid compounds – like CBG, CBN and CBC. While those are being studied individually (finally!) we know that they’re a crucial part to CBD working in full force. There have also been some recent studies that show that CBC may specifically be super beneficial for skin irritations.
The Salve with Rosemary + Geranium + Sweet Orange essential oils:
Multi-purpose everyday salve.
Here’s why we made it:
Rosemary is a natural protectant from sun damage and free radicals. It has natural antiseptic properties, and promotes healthy moisturized skin. Often used for acne, it’s known to reduce microbial and inflammations.
Combined with sweet orange essential oil and geranium, it is a potent skincare remedy. Sweet orange essential oil is calming, and in aromatherapy it has shown to relax the mind. Geranium essential oil is often used as an anti-inflammatory.
The Salve with Comfrey + Clary Sage essential oil:
The comfrey is organically grown in Oregon. It is then picked at its peak and its properties are extracted by letting it sit in organic olive oil in sunlight for 40+ days. Then that oil is blended with a mix of rich butters, beeswax & hemp paraffin and 1000mg of hemp derived full spectrum CBD extract.
Here’s why we made it:
Comfrey has been used in Japan for over 2,000 years as a traditional treatment for muscle sprains, bruises and join inflammation. The roots contain chemical substances called allantoin and rosmarinic acid, which help skin regenerate itself and relive pain and inflammation. We felt that this would pair wonderfully with clary sage, another favorite herb of ours.
Clary sage is often used for dermatitis, and skin inflammations, but can be used as aromatherapy to relieve depression and anxiety. “One small study done on women undergoing a stressful medical test indicated that when inhaled, clary sage essential oil elicited feelings of relaxation and helped to reduce blood pressure.” “Another small study with menopausal women indicated that inhaled clary sage oil reduced cortisol, the stress hormone, and produced an antidepressant-like effect.”
You can apply this blend topically to your forehead when you feel stressed out or at the first symptoms of a creeping headache. This blend can also be used for painful menstruation and cramps when applied topically to the lower abdomen. **
The Salve with Calendula
Gentle yet potent.
Did you know that Calendula is an edible medicinal flower? It can be used internally for many purposes, but we used the extract to formulate one of our original salves.
Calendula is known to help heal wounds and scarring and for general skin health because of its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. It is also often used for skin irritations, eczema and psoriasis*.
The calendula is organically grown in Oregon. It is then picked at its peak and its properties are extracted by letting it sit in organic olive oil in sunlight for 40+ days. Then that oil is blended with a mix of rich butters, beeswax & hemp paraffin and 1000mg of hemp derived full spectrum CBD extract.

The Salve with St. John’s Wort
The holy-grail herbal blend.
Formulated with st John’s wort extract, arnica & calendula, it has been one of our all around best selling blends. It’s a multi functional product for all kinds of skin problems, including muscle aches, scrapes, scarring, and irritations.* Arnica “is one of the most popular medications in complementary medicine and is widely employed in tincture, ointment, cream, gel, and tablet form. It is a herb native to the mountains of Siberia and Central Europe, and has been used to treat various pathological conditions, including pain, stiffness and swelling associated with trauma, postoperative clinical conditions (including contusions and sprains) and for symptomatic relief in osteoarthritis”.

The flowers are organically grown in Oregon, and extracted by adding them to organic olive oil, and letting them sit in sunlight for 40+ days. Then that oil is blended with a mix of rich butters, beeswax & hemp paraffin and 1000mg of hemp derived full spectrum CBD extract.
