Achilles Charm is a deep herbal treatment for your skin. The balm is a blend of potent herbs macerated in organic botanical oils for many weeks to extract their skin-soothing properties.
You can use this salve to help soothe any skin irritations from bites and stings to scrapes and cuts, scars and dry, itchy skin conditions. This salve is also recommended for tattoo aftercare! The salve itself is unscented and suitable for sensitive skin.
The active ingredients inside this salve are:
Plantain - a plant traditionally used to heal wounds, it's particularly well known for its ability to soothe insect and snake bites, nettle stings, eczema, psoriasis and burns.
Yarrow - With the Latin name Achillea millefolium, yarrow is named after the Greek hero Achilles, who it's said used this herb to help heal his soldier's wounds. Yarrow contains anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and styptic properties as well as astringent tannins and resins that help aid skin repair.
Calendula - Also known as pot marigold, this flower is found in herbal salves that treat and soothe various skin conditions, from eczema to acne.
Jojoba seed oil - A natural emollient, jojoba oil’s similarity to sebum allows it to absorb easily and readily into your skin, making it a gentle, skin-softening moisturiser for all skin types.
Rosehip seed oil - An oil that is highly moisturising, light, non-greasy and full of antioxidants, vitamins and essential fatty acids that are known to correct dark spots and hydrate dry, itchy skin, all while helping to reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
Beeswax - Unrefined beeswax sourced locally, from a small-scale beekeeper in Essex. It's naturally antibacterial and creates a protective barrier on the skin which in turn helps aid skin repair.
Each Achilles Charm salve comes in a beautiful 60ml amber glass jar decorated with illustrations of the ingredients inside, drawn by Louise who handmakes each of the Salix Moon products from her home in Essex. Store your lip balm in a cool dark place and use it within 6 months once opened.
