Ingredients: lavender, plantain, comfrey, yarrow, calendula (marigold), chamomile, arnica flower, ginger root, peppermint, and magnesium oil infused in organic sunflower oil and ethically sourced organic beeswax.
Use: for temporary topical relief from pain and spasms such as restless leg syndrome, as well as some nerve pain.
Application: apply small amount on affected area. Wait 30-60 minutes and add another thin layer if necessary.
Note from Megan: This salve is two years in the making. I began developing this salve when my daughter Arrow (Wahiŋkpe) developed a sudden severe pain in her legs. Since then, it has moved into her left arm as well. After extensive testing, doctors found she has a rare genetic nerve pain disorder, which has no noticeable triggers other than cold temperatures. So, I developed this salve using medicinal plants that have been used for generations by Indigenous peoples, to help Arrow without having to rely solely on pharmaceutical medications.
