This salve was created especially for the autoimmune condition, lichen sclerosis, but also for other skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, or other annoying skin problems. We have chosen the ingredients in this salve carefully, especially for the lichen sclerosis condition.
We have created a number of products to provide relief for this condition and recommend that you alternate use of appropriate salves to help avoid "tissue fatigue". It is often good to take a brief break from one product and use another for some time.
Although these conditions are best treated internally, having a salve that can calm the itch and support skin health is good. All ingredients are organically grown or ethically wildcrafted and all are safe for most people.
The product contains the following herbs which have been infused into a combination of olive oil and jojoba oil. Please note that there are NO essential oils in this product. Essential oils are too strong to put directly on an area so tender. The herbs used in this product are gently and slowly infused into the ingredient oils.
