Best for ALL skin things

I have tried A LOT of skin salvbes, but this one is by far the best I have tried yet. Been suing it a few months now, and it is great for skin that is dry, itchy, bug bitten, irritated, it worked on soothing my face after a breakout, works awesome on razor burn, after gardening--you name it, it works. So glad I tried it!!

Healing at its best!

I love this salve for the nicks, small burns and seasonal dryness between my fingers.
Works great on grandkids little outdoor scraps as well. I feel like it does help those oven and woodstove burns heal faster.
A good lightweight item for camping too, for those branch rashes!

Relives itching and burning

So I had the not so joyous shingles for the 5th or 6th time and found that your Essential Salve was so helpful in relieving the itching and burning once the blisters opened up as well as helping to heal them. What a great product!

Ooooh, boo, bummer on the shingles, but super stoked to hear that the Essential Salve helped! Thanks for sharing this!
Will never use anything else!

Love this salve! Been using it for over 5 years and will never use anything else! It’s magical and works for just about anything and everything.

Wow Daphne! That is so cool to hear! Thanks for the support after all of these years!!! <3
Healthy nails again!

After 3 surgeries and years of heavily chemical manicures, my nails were a mess. Mel’s Essential Salve is helping the ridges, dryness and hangnails! Excellent product. My nails are growing again!

Oh that’s so wonderful to hear & happifies my soul! Thank you for sharing I’m so happy it’s helping you!
Excellent for Healing my Work Hands!

My hands get banged up from mechanic work and restaurant work. It makes it very hard for small cuts and wounds to heal when having to return to work day after day without sufficient time for hands to recover. I was amazed at the difference I saw with how well my hands started healing literally the first day after using this product!!

great for eczema!

i work in a kitchen & it aggravates my eczema somethin awful. i’ve tried a bunch of different things(including bag balm). the only thing that helped was some prescription stuff, until now! i just use essential salve after work & a little here & there, & it’s done wonders!


I take blood thinner shots and often get bruises. This salve makes the bruise go away in about a week, without it took over 3 weeks! Also, my daughter got a nasty cut on her finger that ended up blistering pretty bad and causing her skin to peel. Just a few hours of having the salve on has made more of a difference than days of neosporin and antibiotics. So glad my friend recommended this amazing stuff!

Andy, thank you so much for your feedback! These stories make what we do so worth it! I'm so glad your friend recommended it too! :)
Not bad

Does the trick. But I’m not fond of lavender or rosemary scents. My brother likes it, though.

HI Amy, Thank you for your review! I'm happy to hear it does the trick for you, and that your brother likes it. Sorry you're not into the smell of Lavender and Rosemary. Those organic essential oils are in the blend for the functionality they bring to it, not so much for fragrance value. Though, many others really enjoy it. Thanks again for the review!
Love this product.
