PEPPERMINT with organic rosehip oil: is wonderfully nourishing and cooling for skin. This salve is a real BUG REPELLANT & is outstanding for pain, particularly in an immediate way; use for sprains, joints, toothache. It is really antioxidant, a rich source of vitamin C! It is a stimulant, but relaxes sore muscles and that is because it brings the blood to the surface. Rose-hip oil (known to reduce fine lines & minimize scars) was used by the Mayans & the Egyptians. My organic peppermint salve with organic rose-hip seed oil repairs sun damaged skin. I have seen it but a kabash on advancing poison ivy DEAD, truly keeps mosquitoes away. It is excellent for lips – ever so invigorating & it sparkles up the inside of the mouth! All Louise’s salves are edible, of course. Again, the peppermint is out of this world in keeping bugs away (but will smell delightful to you)! It is also wonderful for enlivening your feet & disposition! This is said to be effective in reducing cellulite. Just a great addition for the counter-top or bathroom medicine cabinet.
