Wild Harvested Creosote Salve

Sold Out

Creosote is an evergreen shrub, with small waxy leaves, that thrives in desert climates. Known as "la hediondilla" or stinky one, because of its distinctive smell that most Southwesterners say reminds them of the desert in the rain. Early native Americans held beliefs that it treated many maladies, including sexually transmitted diseases, tuberculosis, chicken pox, dysmenorrhea, and snakebite. A special formulation exclusive to Kindred Black, creosote salve is an incredible remedy for abrasions, sun-damaged skin, red scaly patches, scratches and bug bites, itchy feet, and almost anywhere that needs a little TLC. In a hand blown glass jar, made in the USA, with cork closure.
