Frequently Asked Questions

What is a salve?

A salve is a healing ointment that is applied to the skin to soothe and alleviate a variety of skin conditions. The Botanical Balm Company's salves are made with all natural products, such as herbs, oils, and beeswax. Salves work by quickly penetrating the skin to provide deep, restorative healing. 

Salves are commonly used to treat skin irritations such as rashes, insect bites, and minor cuts or burns. They are also often used to alleviate joint and muscle pain, such as arthritis or sore muscles.

At its core, a salve is a natural and effective way to address many common skin and muscle issues without the use of harsh chemicals or prescription medication. 

Whether you are looking for a natural solution for a skin condition or seeking relief for joint or muscle pain, a salve may be the perfect solution for you. With its healing properties and all-natural ingredients, a salve is a safe and effective option for anyone looking to improve their skin or ease their aches and pains. 

What is an herbal oil infusion?

An herbal oil infusion is a process in which herbs are steeped in oil to extract their medicinal and beneficial properties. This infusion process creates an all-natural, plant-based oil that can be used in a variety of applications. 

To make our organic herbal oil infusions, high-quality organic herbs are placed in a jar, covered with an organic carrier oil (such as sweet almond or avocado oil), and then infused for 8 weeks. This allows 100% of the active compounds in the herbs to be extracted into the oil, creating a potent and therapeutic product. 

At The Botanical Balm Company, we take great care to ensure that all of our herbal oil infusions are made with the highest quality organic herbs and oils. We use very low heat (<110 degrees Fahrenheit) to ensure that the beneficial compounds are extracted without damaging the delicate plant material, resulting in a pure and potent oil which we use in our products.
