Petroleum Jelly has found its far superior replacement. This is one of the most used products here at the Fat and the Moon household. Sunflower oil infused with calendula, St. John’s wort and homegrown yerba mansa has healing and regenerating medicinal properties that are both gentle and effective. Calendula is great for treating slow-healing cuts and stimulates the production of collagen at wound sites which minimizes scarring. St John’s Wort has healing properties both internally and externally and works to treat cuts and burns. Yerba mansa is a lesser known herb, native to these here parts in CA--the leaves promote skin repair.
This salve is great for healing scrapes, cuts, burns and bites as well as chapped and cracked hands. We also use it as a lip balm, and a knee and elbow softener.
