Heal-All Salve

The go-to salve for all variety of your daily dry skin needs. A valued companion for the adventure of life.*

About Heal-All Salve: We start with vibrant green organic olive oil and combine it with a unique bouquet of organic and Biodynamic® herbs from Avena's garden. These herbs infuse into the oil for 14 days at 100F, resulting in a deeply rich botanical oil. We then melt in enough organic beeswax to add firmness. The result is one of the highest quality all-purpose salves available. We've been following herbalist Deb Soule's same recipe for over 35 years, making Heal-All Salve one of our top selling and most revered products!

Deeply moisturizing and nourishing to the skin, this salve provides exquisite after-care to a busy day in the garden or any activity that dries out the skin. Apply to your face, hands, fingers, feet, body, or lips for optimum natural skin support.

Heal-All Salve supports healthy tissue growth, integrity, and a healthy inflammatory response after vigorous exercise. Our 2-ounce and 4-ounce glass jars of salve are perfect for daily use, and our 1-ounce metal tins are conveniently pocket-sized with a twisted lid for travel, camping, gardening, carpentry projects, and all of life's adventures!

Plant Profiles:

  • Calendula (Calendula officinalis) - These sunny flowers are as generous in healing benefits and gifts as they are joyfully and abundantly growing in Avena's gardens. We hand-gather over 100 pounds of fresh flowers each summer and carefully lay them out to dry for our salves, crèmes, and oils. When used topically on skin and mucous membranes, calendula supports healthy tissues. The highly resinous flowers’ soothing and vulnerary qualities have an affinity for removing mild redness and irritation.
  • Comfrey (Symphytum officinale) - We gather and dry both the leaf and root from Avena's Biodynamic gardens for more of the Comfrey magic. Comfrey has an uncanny ability to support healthy skin growth at a superficial level, which makes for an excellent lip balm, to soothe occasional dry or marked skin, and for massaging our Heal-All Salve into tired hands and feet. A giving, strengthening, and wonderful plant.
  • Plantain (Plantago major) - The leaves of Plantain are wide and soft. We gather them from our garden pathways and gently dry them. This plant favors high traffic areas, and is a good one to know when enjoying the outdoors. Plantain contains both astringent and moistening qualities that are important for healthy skin growth. The leaves also have a "drawing" quality, making it particularly helpful for the occasional bug bite or splinter.
  • St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) - Known for "letting in the light", St. John's Wort flowers add a special energy to Avena's Heal-All Salve. Their vulnerary qualities support the physical tissues of the nervous system, ease occasional irritation of fingers, toes, and perineum tissue, and offer warmth and light to the heart. Beloved through time, this plant has an ability to soothe and offer vitality both topically and internally.
  • Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) - The deep green of alfalfa, packed full of a variety of minerals and vitamins including A, B, C, D and E, offer soothing, moisturizing, and revitalizing benefits to the skin.
  • Basil, Sweet (Ocimum basilicum) - A surprise ingredient in our Heal-All Salve for soothing and rejuvenating the skin. Besides drying for our salve, we also enjoy eating lots of fresh Basil in salads, pesto, and in fresh green juices alongside Dandelion, Sorrel and Parsley.
  • Borage (Borago officinalis) - The beautifully blue Borage flowers attract hundreds of bees in Avena's garden. We gather and dry the leaves for our salve as they ease occasional redness and irritation, and soothe the skin.
  • Red Clover (Trifolium pratense) - Red clover's soft mauve-colored flowers ease mild redness and irritation of the skin. We encourage Red Clover to grow along the edges of our garden, as their flowers are beloved by bees.

Suggested Use: Apply to dry areas of skin including hands, lips, faces, and feet. Store in a cool place out of direct sunlight.

Safety Considerations: For external use only.
