It has a long tradition in Native American culture for the healing of many maladies. This is further boosted by the addition of Marigold, one of nature's all round healing salves and is especially effective as a skin healer.  With creamy coconut oil and the antibacterial properties of beeswax - this salve is a must have in any herbal medicine cabinet!
