She only uses local, certified organic, and biodynamic oils and essential oils in all products. All ingredients are food grade, completely non-toxic and of the highest quality.

“I used Herban Myth Botanicals First-Aid Salve on my left hand after surgery and I felt that my healing time was half the time as that after my right-hand surgery. Also, the scars are pretty much invisible. I love the fact that it rubs in so well and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling. I just had some dermatology treatment on my face, and I can’t wait to try it on my face to see how it heals.”
-Sheril N.

“I have been using Herban Myth Botanicals Salve for years on everything from rough skin, bruises, cuts and scrapes, and burns. It always has healed me quickly. I also like the feel and smell of the salve. Recently I had some moles removed on my face and was horrified when I removed my bandages to see 6 stitches on my right cheek, and 2 across the bridge of my nose. The plastic surgeon gave me a few suggestions of scar creams to use. I started using a scar cream from the drug store and didn’t notice much of a change in my skin redness or texture where the stitches were, even after over 2 weeks. Then I started using what I normally use on everything- the salve. Within one week of using it, my scar was dramatically lighter and much smoother. Now, 2 weeks after using salve only my scar on my nose is 90% unnoticeable and the large one on my cheek is so much better. The salve just seems to heal everything way faster and I feel good knowing exactly what’s going onto my skin.
I’m a client for life.”

“That salve was the best thing for me when I would get mango-sap burns! It sped up my healing process.”
-Chris M.

“I have your salve, and it rocks my socks off! I think you sent it my way over a year ago, and it’s so potent that I still have tons left…a little goes a long way! Love it for burns, cuts, etc. So dang good!!!”
-Kate M.

“I use it on my horses face. He was so bit up from flies that he was super grouchy. It has helped heal his bites and keeps the flies away. In turn, he no longer tries to bite me!”
-Chelsea P.

“I use it for all kinds of skin owies, bug bites, plant rashes, cuts, scrapes, bruises, I use it on my dogs too. Mosquitos love me so I use it a lot. It provides relief immediately, as soon as I put it on it stops the itching. I can’t be without it, so I have one at work, home, and purse! A little goes a long way so it lasts too.”
-Charlotte W.

“Herban Myth Botanicals First-Aid Salve soothes and heals. I used it on a sore and bruised toe after hitting it hard on the leg of a piano bench. The salve felt wonderful on my skin!”
