Ina's Salve


Ina (ee-nah) means “mother” in the Lakota language.

Ingredients: Sunflower Oil, Beeswax, Plantain, Calendula, Rose Petals

The recipe for Ina's Salve was created by Megan L. Schnitker, a traditional Sičangu Lakota herbalist and mother to seven daughters. The plants used in this salve have a wide variety of medicinal benefits! Both calendula and rose petals are anti-inflammatory and gently heal scrapes and/or rashes on sensitive skin, and plantain soothes irritated skin and prevents infections. This salve is unscented, plant-based, and safe for both moms and babies!

Product comes in a 4oz glass jar.

Uses: For soothing relief of sore, dry, and cracked nipples after breastfeeding. For external use only.

How to Use: apply small amount to nipples immediately after breastfeeding

Salves should be kept in a cool, dry area.  Do not let salves freeze or melt as this will cause the consistency to be off. The product should still work as intended if this happens, but the consistency will make it more difficult to apply.
