Why Salves?

"Salve to put on your eyes, so you can see" - the Bible

Used from the time of ancient civilisations, salves harness the healing properties of natural ingredients to restore, remedy and relieve. Through the use of mineral-rich clays, botanicals and other natural ingredients, these salves were widely used throughout the ancient world for a variety of purposes. 

Yet even though today we now live in modern and urban settings far removed from the lives of our ancestors, the perennial human need for healing has remained unchanged. In fact, the modern soul - harried and worn down by the wear and tear of urban life - is arguably even more in need of such comfort.

salve: the philosophy

Inspired by the ancients and their belief in the natural healing properties of raw ingredients, our aim is to reimagine the salve for the modern soul

More than just literally making salves (though we certainly do that), we take the philosophy undergirding the concept of salves - to harness nature's healing properties for increased wellness - and apply it in the formulation of all our products, salves and beyond. 

We are passionate about taking raw ingredients from nature and putting them together into all-natural products that you can safely apply on your skin without a care. Nothing more, nothing less.

our ingredients

All our products combine the powerful therapeutic effects of essential oils with the deeply moisturising properties of natural oils and butters, creating a wellness experience for both your mind and body like no other.

Essential Oils: Nature's healing powerhouse

Essential oils are the essence of a plant, distilled through scientific methods to create concentrated natural compounds. Various essential oils have different chemical makeups, and contain numerous benefits for the body and mind - changing how you feel physically, mentally, and emotionally.

All our products are all scented with 100% therapeutic grade essential oils - safe for topical application and of the highest possible quality. 

Natural oils and butters: Nature's original skin food

Did you know that our skin is the largest organ of our bodies and since it is porous, it absorbs whatever we put on it? Yet from day to day, we mindlessly layer on our skins product after product with ingredient lists filled with unpronounceable chemicals and artificial additives.

We make our products from oils and butters that are entirely natural. No additives, no parabens, no sulphates, no toxic chemicals. You can enjoy our products with full confidence in the safety of what you are applying on your and your loved ones' skins. 

And that's it! These are literally all that our products are made of. You won't find a drop of anything more.
