Golden Salve Review

With three kids, we have a lot of bumps, cuts and scrapes in our house. Sure enough, the day that I received The Golden Salve™, one of my children fell of their bike while another took a tumble out of a tree. The Golden Salve™ by Equinox Botanicals™ is a natural blend of high quality herbal ingredients including propolis, goldenseal root, comfrey root, yellow dock root, calendula flower and balm of gilead bud which are “slowly cooked in organic extra virgin olive oil, cold pressed safflower oil, coconut oil and beeswax.” I studied herbal remedies when my daughter was diagnosed with severe eczema and asthma. I was very impressed with the quality of the ingredients and the passion that the company has in making this product for over 30 years. I decided to try this on my daughter’s eczema patches which were quite severe on her feet and I was afraid that it might get infected. Just a small dab of The Golden Salve™ stopped her itching, soothed the open areas of the skin and helped it to heal. I keep a small tin of The Golden Salve™ in my bag when traveling for those inevitable scratches and scrapes. I appreciate that The Golden Salve™ is created in small batches on a farm in southeastern Ohio. My husband, an Ohio farm boy is proud that this product is an Appalachian treasure from his home state.

I am a huge fan of using botanicals for healing and I am really impressed with the quality and effectiveness of The Golden Salve™. You can purchase or learn more about The Golden Salve™ at the Equinox Botanicals™ website.
