Rose Geranium 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.
Rose Geranium is a balancing oil. It acts to balance the function of the oil glands so it can be used for both dry and oily skin. It is healing and antiseptic as well as a cellular regenerative. It's most helpful to older, aging or damaged skin. When inhaled it is uplifting, averts tension and can be stimulating to the psyche.
