Consecrated Calm Salve
Lavender has been used to treat an array of skin conditions and maladies for thousands of years. Used by the Egyptians for mummification, prescribed by medieval physicians to treat epilepsy and migraines, and for centuries English farmers put lavender flowers in their hats to prevent headaches. For skin, lavender is anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial making it a fantastic tool to combat eczema, dermatitis, dry and chapped skin, acne, and dandruff of the scalp. Lavender has also been shown to be a circulatory stimulant and a cell-regenerator, making the salve a wonderful anti-aging spot treatment and scar and stretch mark treatment. Calming and grounding to the senses, the scent of lavender has anti-depressive qualities and is used extensively in aromatherapy to mitigate anxiety, insomnia, and mental exhaustion.
Peppermint is anti-inflammatory, relaxes nerves and relieves pain, increases blood flow, and helps to stimulate the skins oil production so it can be used on dry spots or to treat a parched area of the complexion.
Use a small amount of Consecrated Calm Salve as a rejuvenating lip and face balm, a light and all natural perfume, makeup remover, to treat and cool sun and windburn, eczema, psoriasis, and scars or anywhere that skin is irritated or needs extra hydration. May also be rubbed into temples during episodes of headache or migraine.
