About: 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!
