Blood Orange Rosemary Salve
Hoof cream or herbal salves have been in existence almost as long as we have harvested herbs for medicinal use. Hoof cream or salve is a healing ointment for the skin with antibacterial qualities. It contains no water so it forms a separate layer over the skin. This layer protects the skin while carrying the active ingredients to the affected area.
The base of our hoof cream is St. Helena Olive Oil Co. extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil and beeswax. Olive oil has a myriad of skin benefits. It is rich in vitamins and antioxidants and is a highly effective component in neutralizing the free radicals that damage healthy skin. Olive oil also helps balance your skin's moisture. Coconut oil prevents drying and flaking of the skin. Because of its antioxidant properties, it also delays wrinkles and sagging of the skin. Beeswax is the closest thing to human skin. It has antibacterial properties and and forms a barrier on the skin to protect it from irritants.
Our hoof cream is designed for hands and feet but works well on chapped lips or hands, cracking heels, diaper rash, cuts, scrapes, sunburn, bites, stings and for rubbing into sore muscles and aching backs. To maximize results, put hoof cream on hands and feet at night, cover with gloves and socks and have sweet dreams.
Our citrus essential oil blend is not only designed for its uplifting aromatherapeutic effect but also because of the benefits to the function of your skin. The orange essential oils assist the lymphatic system, helping it to detoxify skin. The action of its tonic supports collagen formation on the skin which is good for dry, irritated and more mature skin. Rosemary oil improves blood circulation and decongests the skin while the lavender, rose geranium and cedarwood oil bring healing and balance.
