Promotes healing & prevents infection in minor wounds

Use First Aid Salve as you would a conventional antibiotic ointment. It is handcrafted with powerful healing herbs to boost the immune system and provide antibiotic, antiviral, antiseptic action to help prevent infection in minor cuts, scrapes, boils, and insect bites.

Plantain is a powerful first aid herb that soothes irritation, reduces inflammation, helps tissues recover more quickly, and treats infection in wounds. It is also astringent, which helps to stop bleeding and can aid in drawing out dirt or debris that may not have been removed during cleaning.

Yarrow is another wonderful herb for first aid. It is a strong antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. It helps to stop bleeding, prevent infection, and reduces inflammation in cuts and scrapes.

Tea tree is antiseptic, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory. It is helpful for preventing infection and treating fungal infections or rashes.

Usnea is anti-bacterial and helps to improve the body’s ability to fight off infections and heal itself. It is particularly helpful in the treatment of infected wounds.
