Specs per manufacturer: This versatile salve quickly and effectively takes the pain and itch out of insect bites, bee stings and poison ivy. It soothes and softens rashes, alleviates chapped, irritated skin, and even eases the discomforts of eczema. Heals wounds with minimal or no scarring. A must for every home!
Findings: I recently spoke with the owner and founder of Motherlove. This lady knows her herbs! She told me she developed Green Salve when she was living off the grid back in the early 70′s in Colorado and needed something serious to help alleviate the itch from backcountry bugs. Impressive, but I needed further convincing. My daughter provided the perfect testing scenario. She had 10 (she always counts them) big mosquito bites on her thigh. She was clawing and scratching at them furiously. I whipped out my little jar of green salve and put a small amount on each bite. Results? She said the itch was gone! We had to reapply about 3 hours later, but had the same great results. The only downside is that green salve comes in a small glass jar–not super practical for the backcountry. I do plan on using it at home all the time though. Good work Motherelove! (And if haven’t tried their nipple cream before, you must. As a lactation consultant, it is my all time favorite product.)
