We made this offering with fresh local plants and herbs to soothe temporarily itchy skin brought on by dry skin, insect bites and stings, temporary hives and rashes, tight or scratchy clothing, or eczema. See your doctor, nurse practitioner, naturopath, or clinical herbalist whenever itchy skin persists because itching can signify an underlying health condition.
To use: Apply to itchy skin using well-washed clean fingers, as needed. Stop using if your skin doesn't like this salve. Visit your healthcare professional if itching persists.
Ingredients: Organic olive oil infused with local plantain leaf (Plantago lanceolata), stinging nettles (Urtica dioica), peppermint (Mentha piperita), chickweed (Stellaria media), calendula (Calendula officinalis), and holy basil tulsi (Ocimum tenuiflorum), plus local beeswax.
Relationships and sourcing: We work as grateful learners and partners with local plants, flowers, lichens, herbs, forests, and fields who we consider kin, elders, and friends. The plants in this offering were either grown here at Ritual Mischief or ethically gathered on friends' trusted land--by us--on Whidbey Island. We receive local beeswax from Hive Harvest on the Olympic Peninsula and Maya Farm here on Whidbey. Sometimes a batch is topped off with a tiny bit of local beeswax from Brambleberry, located in Bellingham, WA.
Size/packaging: Reusable, 2-ounce, metal screw-top tin. See the Packaging page of this website for more details.

To make well-informed decisions for yourself, seek the guidance of your qualified health professional, such your medical doctor, nurse practitioner, naturopathic physician, and/or clinical herbalist with questions regarding your medical conditions, dosage information, and possible ingredient interactions with prescription drugs. This is especially important if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking prescription drugs, have a chronic disease or any chronic health concern, if you have allergies, or if you have never touched, worked with, or used products with these plants in them before.
