Freshly made as are all of my products, this nettle salve has extremely favorable benefits for skin and scalp. Made with quality organic nettle seeped for weeks or months in quality olive oil and then added to beeswax and coconut oil and a drop of Vitamin E for preservation. It works wonderfully as an ant-wrinkle salve too, best applied at night as it tends to be a little greasy. Definitely worth trying!
The oil is an excellent treatment for hypersensitive or stressed skin and scalp as it helps reduce irritation, and reverse inflammatory reactions. Warm Nettle oil has been traditionally used as restorative anti-wrinkle facial masque for thin sensitive skin. It helps combat irritations, redness, itching, improve skin conditions in sensitive areas.
