I use the Herbal First Aid Salve on tense muscles which helps and I also put it on dry lips, especially when I'm sick. It's great aromatherapy when you rub a little bit on the side of your nose and forehead to open the sinuses. I also use it to help relieve minor skin problems, cuts, and if you get a rash from Candida. It helps with mosquito bites, since I'm very allergic; when I get bit my skin puffs up a lot and the Herbal First Aid Salve clears it up in a couple of days. ~O. L., Tampa Bay, FL
As for the Herbal First Aid Salve, I used it on insect bites and it was very effective. Southern Botanicals Echinacea is the best I have found anywhere. - D.T. Burlington, NJ.
I work as a Certified Nursing Assistant. I use 'Universal Precautions' in which I use vinyl gloves and constant hand washing. As a result my hand became irritated. The skin and cuticles broke down. Skin tegrity was non existent with areas of eczema. I started using the Herbal Salve twice a day, sometimes more. Within 24 hours I noticed a difference. Within 1 week I had healing skin, the cuticles are coming back. Now my hands are well on their way to being completely healed. Thank you very much! - D.D.M. Clearwater, FL
I use this for everything, cuts, abrasions, etc.~Tom W.
