Small batch handmade goods by Foundroot using only organic and natural ingredients, plants grown in our gardens, or sustainably wildcrafted herbs we collected ourselves. Handmade with love in Haines, Alaska.

This salve is one of the very first products we offered at Foundroot aside from seeds over 10 years ago and it is truly a labor of love. It hasn't made an appearance in nearly that long due to the overwhelm of farming and how labor intensive it is to make. We are so grateful to have brought it back. If you like it, we'll try to keep making it. Very limited quantity. Once this batch is gone, we'll have to wait for the 2023 harvest to make it again. 

In the late winter/early spring, we go out and collect wild Cottonwood Buds full of sticky resin along the river. We grow Calendula Resina, a particularly rich and potent variety, in our garden and collect the blooms all summer long. In late summer, we harvest fragrant Yarrow to add to the mix. The herbs are soaked in different organic oils for a minimum of 3-6 months and then blended with pure beeswax and fair trade organic shea butter. We use it for cuts, rashes, bites, dryness and anything that's chapped, chafing, or cracked. We find it very healing and gentle for the whole family. 

This is a rich, concentrated formula that should be used like an ointment, not a lotion. A little goes a long way. Safe and gentle from head to lips to baby bottoms to toes.
