About the ingredients:
Plantain: Plantain is widely regarded as one of the great herbs for wounds. It has natural antibacterial, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties which make it great for speeding up wound recovery time. It also works wonders on blisters, itching caused by bites, stings, poison ivy, poison oak and sumac as well as itching and pain caused by skin disorders such as chicken pox, diaper rash, eczema and psoriasis. Native American cultures use plantain as a traditional treatment for insect and animal bites since the antibacterial action helps prevent infection while the anti-inflammatory action helps to relieve pain, burning and itching.
Calendula: Calendula is known to stimulate physiological regeneration and skin healing. For centuries, it has been used to treat skin disorders and enhance the wound healing process. This herb has a high amount of flavonoids, which can help reduce inflammation and thereby speed up the stages of healing. These same flavonoids also fight off bacteria, viruses and other pathogens protecting the wound from infection.
St. John's Wort: St. John's wort has a vulnerary action on the skin, which means it helps the skin to regenerate and heal. It is an anti-inflammatory - helping to reduce the redness and inflammation that can lead to a scar.
Rosemary: Rosemary hastens wound and bruise healing. It is a helpful healing agent for chapped skin, diaper rash, eczema, cuts and scrapes.
Beeswax: Beeswax locks in moisture protecting and encouraging the skin to heal. It is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. It is also helpful for dry skin itching, dermatitis and eczema.
Oregano Essential Oil: Oregano essential oil is a powerful antimicrobial that can help fight infections. It also has antibacterial, antiviral and anti fungal properties. It helps to relieve bug bites, rashes, acne, psoriasis, eczema and rosacea.
Tea Tree Essential Oil: Tea tree essential oil has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties to help treat wounds and speed healing. It has been documented to kill many strains of bacteria, viruses and fungi. It is useful in helping acne, chickenpox, cold sores, fungal infections, psoriasis, eczema, toenail fungus, dry cuticles and blisters as well as insect bites, sores and sunburns.
Rosemary Oleoresin: A naturally occurring mix of oil and resin extracted from the leaves of the rosemary plant. It is a powerful antioxidant that also acts as a natural preservative.
