Have you walked down the body care aisle at your local supermarket lately? Thousands of colorful skin care bottles and tubes vie for your attention. Every day most of us use products that we think are safe; but the truth is that they are NOT. Manufacturers don’t have to tell us so. Ever since 1938 – when the FDA granted self-regulation to the cosmetics industry – such products can be marketed without government approval of ingredients, regardless of what tests show!
Thankfully, more and more people are starting to become aware and find other sources.
God’s gift of natural herbs, as our ancestors knew – properly grown and prepared – can effect a much better outcome than anything the skin care industry can offer. Why not consider a better way, the way of herbal healing?
The Salve Garden
Lately, I’ve not been able to make everything myself. I searched for a source of truly natural herbal healing products and found The Salve Garden for the smaller health challenges of life -diaper rash, eczema, dry skin, bug bites, poison ivy, bee stings, etc. Ingredients are nothing more than healing organic herbs and ingredients I already love:
Extra Virgin Coconut or Olive Oil
St. John’s Wort
Aloe Vera Powder
Best Herbal Healing Salves
Ashley over at The Salve Garden desires to help you live a simpler, healthier life by providing natural, affordable alternative to body care products and over-the-counter creams. It is her goal to leave you feeling satisfied about product performance and to promote health rather than destroy it.
We’ve had the quick results I expect with Ashley’s hand-picked selection of healing herbs. Living on a working farm/homestead, we often have need of healing for the skin; my choice would always be herbal. Each is handsomely packaged in a generous-sized 4 oz. tin.
Would you consider supporting a real family like Ashley’s rather than a multi-million dollar company that doesn’t care what they add to their products as long as they make a profit?
“In Tudor times, in the sixteenth century, the pantry could be described as the control center of the domestic economy. It was here that the countrywoman would store her precious herbs and spices, and make lotions… and distillations. In doing so, she could be described as the family doctor, pharmacist, herbalist, perfumer, candle maker and pest controller all rolled into one, and the health and well being of everyone in the household was her responsibility.”
