Few of the varieties of old-style salves, liniments, tinctures, and balms produced during the 1700 and 1800s are available today. The traditional method was replaced with a commercialized process which often mixes mineral oil or petroleum-based emollients with synthetic additives and harsh fragrances.
Traditional applications didn’t include synthetic ingredients. When infused in a particular way, botanical properties are magnified. Old-style botanical infusions are still well known for their genuine medicinal properties. Families before the turn of the century and earlier would journal practical knowledge like salve and tincture recipes in cookery books to record and annotate instructions for younger generations.
The Apothecary Company offers self-care products that were made using these traditional methods which infuse essential oils and botanicals into lush oils and butters to furnish a natural scent alongside with the healing nutrients and aromatherapeutic properties.
Our old-fashioned balms and salves are packed with tons of botanical micronutrients to feed your skin, beard, and hair – Vit. A, B, C, E, Folic Acid, Biotin, and Minerals. Salicylic acid also provides active acne relief and natural exfoliation.
Your skin is the largest absorbing organ in your body. What you put on it matters!
FOR DAILY USE: Scoop a pinch of The Balm! Plain into your hand when your skin is feeling dry, your beard is out of sorts, or you’re going out. Work the mixture into a paste and smooth it over your body, nails, and hair.
