Review - Island's Own Herbal Savior

An excellent multi purpose, first aid healer from head to toe. For cuts, scrapes and infected wounds as well as all kinds of rashes: eczema, diaper and the unknown source rash. All will respond well and will heal in days with an application of 3-4 times per day. Don?t forget your pet?s wounds too! Comes in three sizes.

So this salve is definitely on the earthier-crunchier side of wonderful-ness but it works so well I thought I should report. The company is based on Martha's Vineyard (off the coast of Cape Cod in MA) and all of the ingredients are grown locally and then made into their many wonderfully healing moisturizers and other body products. I haven't personally tried anything but the salve-which I will elaborate on- but they look really nice and even relatively inexpensive for hand-made goodness!
So the salve was given to me by a friend from the Vineyard who swears by it. Normally, I really do enjoy things like salve, and other more natural healing agents. So I was excited to try it. I have to say, hands down one of the nicest and most healing concoctions I have tried so far. It smells very natural sort of like the chamomile and calendula flowers and maybe also lavender. The most exciting part is it's ability to heal and sooth eczema and other little skin irritants. It makes burns feel better and even reduces heal time. I have used it on my hands when they are super chapped from the winter freeze, and on my lips in a pinch. If you like to try the natural route I would give this a try, it is wonderful.

Randomly came across this review, and I totally agree! a friend gave it to me when I had a few bug bites, and it worked so well that I have been buying it for the past 2 years. The Muscle & Arthritis Salve is also another awesome product. Thanks :)
