Herbal First Aid Balm

After gathering herbs and preparing infused oils and tinctures for almost a year, I finally had all the ingredients for a batch of Joybilee Farm Hemp Rescue Remedy.  There will only be one batch of this powerful herbal healing Balm made each year as it takes many weeks to gather and prepare the fresh tinctures and infused oils that go into it.  Balm of Gilead is harvested and prepared in March.  Comfrey is gathered and prepared in June, Wild Rose is gathered and prepared in July along with St. John's Wort.  Calendula takes all summer to grow and is harvested after frost in September, about the time the local bees wax is available.

People have been coming to the farmer's market raving about how our Joybilee Farm Hemp Hand Balm heals sunburn, and soothes the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis.  How it heals their dry, cracked skin from gardening.  Joybilee Farm Hemp Hand Balm contains the powerful healing properties of St. Johns Wort, Calendula, along with the anti microbial, anti fungal and anti inflammatory essential oils of lavender and certified organic tea tree. 

And for years we've been using the healing properties of organically grown Wild Rose, Calendula, St. John's Wort, Balm of Gilead and Comfrey to heal the pain of inflammation, sciatica and other joint pain in our home and with our livestock.  Now we've combined these herbs into a healing balm for those minor cuts, burns, aches and pains for our friends.  From insect stings, sunburn, diaper rash, cradle cap, to minor burns and cuts and joint pain from strains or arthritis, Hemp Rescue Remedy is available to help.  We combined these healing herbs in a base of certified organic hemp seed oil, natural bees wax, olive oil, jojoba oil, cocoa butter and coconut oil for their skin softening and moisturizing properties. Then added the healing and anti microbial, anti fungal power of certified organic tea tree, lavender, rosemary and geranium essential oils. 

This is gentle and safe for babies and powerful enough to handle those daily first aid needs.
