Our first all-purpose skin balm is ready for purchase. It’s been very exciting for me to combine my love of farming with 20 years of experience as a cosmetic formulator, and begin offer to our Corva Bella Farm personal provisions!
This is our “Erbario” balm, completely handcrafted here on the farm. Slow-rendered and filtered, pure white leaf lard is infused with organic & skin-friendly herbs such as Calendula, Comfrey, Stinging Nettles and Plantain. Organic raw beeswax and Vitamin E are added, as well as organic/wildcrafted essential oils of Cistus, Niaouli, Clary Sage, Palmarosa and Carrot Seed.
This balm has a distinctive herbal fragrance and is pale green in color from the infused herbs. It’s meant to be used externally wherever dry, itchy or irritated skin persists. This is the way our ancestors cared for their skin, before plant oils persisted. Lard, also known as pig tallow, strutto, manteca, or saindoux- is the closest to our skin’s own natural sebum.
2 oz net weight in a heavy glass amber jar with full color/waterproof labeling.
