Created for my children and family for easing bites and stings. We keep on of these jars in every first aid kit we have. A Basic Balm recipe with Activated Charcoal added. Activated Charcoal is an absorptive agent that seems to reduce pain and swelling from some bites. 1 oz glass jar.
Ingredients: Shea Butter, Olive Oil, Beeswax, Activated Charcoal, Lavender Essential Oil.
“…thanks to Summer McCreless of Mothering Herbs, I can attest to the amazingness of activated charcoal! She’s got an activated charcoal balm that cleared up my ant bites in two days. They usually effect me for over a week, with inflammation, blisters, and weeping, itchy grossness. But after applying the activated charcoal balm, the itching stopped and swelling went down considerably, and the next day they were nearly gone. Amazing stuff I’ll carry with me everywhere!!” C.

“Summer, your charcoal balm is awesome!! Wishing I didn’t need it, but I guess it’s an occupational hazzard. :)” K. Dial
