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.
To create the essence of true French Lavender, we have blended our organic Napa Valley lavender essential oil with three other lavenders selected from around the world. The “Lavande” scent which evokes the true, clean, fresh air scent of lavender is hard to accomplish with one single oil. We feel we were able to capture that true scent without relying on any single chemical constituents. The soothing and anti-inflammatory action of the lavender essential oil will have a balancing effect on the skin and is helpful with dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and acne.
