Eastern Red Cedar with the scientific name juniper virginiana is named so because it is actually a juniper and not a true cedar. This botanical was used in traditional western herbalism to apply topically to wounds, skin rashes, hair loss, eczema, acne, warts, fungal skin infections, and hemorrhoids. They also rub it onto joints for rheumatism, and onto the chest for asthma.. The plant contains highly anti-microbial molecules, and applied topically to certain blemishes, can reduce redness and promote even skin tone. Eastern Red Cedar found in our products is sustainably wildcrafted along the Ohio River deep in the hollows of West Virginia. Extraction of Eastern Red Cedar was done using avocado oil due to its unique profile of omega fatty acids. The combination of this regenerative herb and moisturizing oil will provide an overall beautification and nourishment of the skin.
Using a salve, for individual blemishes only a small amount is required. Rub onto the desired area and then across the skin until hands come off dry. For larger areas such as the scalp and chest, one can use the product liberally. Allow to absorb into the skin before donning clothes as the contents may transfer to clothing. The salve will change consistency with temperature. Best used within 6 months, but keeping the product refrigerated will extend shelf life.
