Organic Comfort

CAD $6.00CAD $27.20

Developed in 1994 for soothing sore skin, it is a multi-purpose ointment for all households and has more than lived up to its promise. After much research, we settled on a combination of jojobachickweed, plantain, comfrey and lemonbalm. To this day, we see people from gardening forums trying to figure out how to get rid of those pesky weeds. However, despite having two acres of land, we find it hard to grow enough of them to fill the orders for our Organic Comfort salve!

To these healing plants, we added a variety of fast penetrating oils that deliver the nutrients in the plants to the skin. Then 100% pure therapeutic essential oils add antibacterial properties, and act as additional healers, natural scent and preservatives. Over 20 years old, we have never altered this recipe. It is amazing for all kinds of skin issues including a variety of rashes, eczema, bites and burns, blisters, and more!

It is a concentrated formula that is high in minerals vitamins (A, C, B1, B2, Beta carotene, thiamin, niacin, rutin, calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, zinc). Safe to use on children and animals an non-stinging. Fast-absorbing, it quickly makes a noticeable difference.
