Eden Salve Give Away

Let me tell you about something I am NEVER without.  

I keep my Eden Salve on hand and have used it for many different problems.

WHY IT WORKS… We formulated this salve using an effective blend of herbs and natural ingredients to numb pain, as well as heal and soothe.  It acts as a astringent to draw out infection and poisonous bites.  It is an antiseptic and fights bacteria.  

  HOW TO USE IT… Apply salve generously to cleaned wounds, rashes, insect bites, boils, and chapped, cracked, or dry skin.  Use externally as often as needed for adults, children and infants.

 INGREDIENTS…  Echinacea root, comfrey leaf, propolis, plantain leaf, echinacea purpurea, yarrow flower, rosemary leaf, beeswax, pure olive oil and grapefruit seed extract.  


My family and I have used it for mosquito bites, ant bites, spider bites, bee stings, rashes from grass, dry skin, diaper rash, and to sooth and clean cuts and scrapes.  We have used Eden Salve for about 5 years and can testify to its effectiveness! 
This is what my current salve looks like.  LOL  
Time for me to order more! 

I have this NEW Eden Salve – pictured below – for  the winner of the “RESULTS” for the Slow-Carb Diet Contest!  I can’t think of a better product to take into the Spring season.  

Be sure to stop by the BULK HERB STORE and look around.  They have everything from heirloom seeds to herbal teas for specific purposes.  They will also teach you the benifits of these wonderful gems God has put in the earth.  

I learned from my Shoshanna how to make my own 
“The BEST itch cream EVER!”
 See how I did it and how I use it HERE.

I am HIGHLY attractive ♥ to mosquitos and other biting bugs – how nice – so I went on a mission to find the BEST way to stop the scratching… and this is what I found …
the BEST “itch medicine” I have ever used.
And I made it from my back yard!!
Plantain is an herb, often thought of as an ugly, annoying weed that grows in almost everyone’s yard.  After learning about this and using it, I promise you will change your opinion about it and want to harvest it!  In North America, the Native Americans use plantain to heal bites of all kinds: snake bites, venomous creatures, rattle snake and even mad dogs bites.  It is a “drawing herb” meaning that it pulls out toxins, infections and other foreign substances from the body.
I make this plantain tincture and keep it close to relieve the pain and itch from bee stings, insect and spider bites, poison ivy, and if ever needed, a snake bite.  In the case of a snake bite, I would apply the tincture and then seek medical attention.  This herb is known as “Nature’s Eraser”  I have noticed when using it on mosquito bites and bee stings, it doesn’t just temporarily relieve the symptom, but it heals the spot!  I love this stuff and hope you will try it.
  • A bunch of plantain leaves
  • A glass jar with a lid
  • Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Cheesecloth or a clean, white T-shirt
  • Dark glass bottles for storage
1.  Go explore your yard, or your neighbor’s if you keep yours in pristine condition 🙂
This is what it looks like.
The leaf is smooth and has veins on the underside.
2.  Gather up a bunch of the leaves and then wash them.
3.  Tear the leaves and make sure to bruise them.
I usually twist them tight, and then tear.
You can even crush them with the bottom of your jar.
4.  Put the leaves in a jar that can be sealed.
5.  Pour Organic Apple Cider Vinegar over the leaves
until they are covered.
6.  Store in a cool, dark place for 2 weeks.
You will need to shake the jar once a day.

Grab your tincture, a clean container,
and your cheesecloth or white t-shirt.


Put your cloth over the top of the jar to strain the leaves.

Now you can discard the leaves and you are left with an
AWESOME tincture!
I like to have a large storage container to keep the tincture stored in the refrigerator (should be labeled :)),
 a smaller one to keep in the first aid kit,
and a purse size to have with me at all times.
Store in dark bottles to retain its potency for much longer period of time.
You can use a dropper to get it in to the smaller containers.
Try it out and let me know what you think!



Coconut Oil has been described as the “Healthiest Oil On Earth” 

It is rich in
Here are some health benefits:
  • hair care
  • skin care
  • stress relief
  • maintaining cholesterol levels
  • weight loss
  • increased immunity
  • proper digestion & metabolism
  • relief from kidney problems
  • heart diseases
  • high blood pressure
  • diabetes
  • cancer
  • dental care
  • bone strength 

Check out The Coconut Research Center for a list of various references on scientific research done on coconut oil.

This is what Dr. Oz has to say about the 
amazing benefits of coconut oil:


Diabetes This is one fat that diabetics can eat without fear. Not only does it not contribute to diabetes, but it helps regulate blood sugar, thus lessening the effects of the disease. Island people have consumed large amounts of coconut oil for many generations without ever encountering diabetes, but when they abandoned it for other foods and oils, the results were disastrous.

Weight Loss The connection between coconut oil and weight loss is interesting. Farmers in America discovered this early last century when they tried to fatten their cattle by feeding them coconut oil. Instead of gaining weight, their cattle lost weight! So again, this is not news. Do a simple Internet search such as “benefits of coconut oil” and you will get plenty of details.

Bone and Dental Health Coconut oil improves calcium and magnesium absorption in the body, which in turn is greatly beneficial to dental and bone health. The improved calcium absorption created by coconut oil use ceases tooth decay and aids in the development of strong teeth. The combined increased calcium and magnesium absorption are of great benefit to middle-aged women who may become afflicted with osteoporosis.

Coconut Oil: A Good Saturated Fat? You may ask, isn’t coconut oil a saturated fat? And aren’t saturated fats harmful? Yes, coconut oil consists of 90% saturated fats. But whether or not saturated fats are harmful depends on who you ask. Among mainstream nutritionists, the idea that saturated fats cause heart disease is an “absolute truth” that is never questioned. Those who question this belief, however, point out that mankind has been consuming mainly saturated fats – in the form of butter, lard, coconut oil, etc – for thousands of years, yet heart disease was rare before the 1920s. If anything, the rise of heart disease in recent decades may correspond to the increasing use of polyunsaturated vegetable oils like corn, safflower and canola, as well as margarine.
