May help relieve discomfort associated with dry cracking skin, skin rash, eczema, psoriasis and athletes foot.
This ointment/salve can be used to help alleviate many different skin conditions. The main use is for providing relief from the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis. In some cases it can clear up eczema and often sooth’s the itch and dryness experienced with psoriasis. This salve is also very effective at treating some varieties of pre-cancerous skin lesions (I would like to stress that the modern medical system always recommends that any skin cancer be professionally examined to insure that is not malignant). We have had many people swear to us that it removed sun spots and cleared up sun damaged skin as well.
This ointment/salve is also effective at relieving the symptoms of athlete’s foot and when used continuously for at least one month can cure toenail fungus.
Dry cracking skin on the heels and hands is a problem that many of us experience. Curing cracking heels takes longer that fixing dry cracking skin on our hands and fingers. With cracking skin on the heels apply a moderate coat of the ointment/salve and then put your socks on, this is often better done right before bed. The Hands crack or become red and irritated for different reasons. Sometimes it is the weather or a side effect of the work we do. Many construction workers suffer from hand issues as well as nurses and others whose hands are exposed to chemicals or are washed too often. All of the conditions will benefit dramatically from the use of the Greasewood ointment/salve.
Greasewood or Chaparral grows throughout the desert regions of Arizona and beyond. When it rains here you can smell a rich earthy scent that permeates the air where it is growing. Many creatures make their homes under the ground beneath the branches of this healing bush. It blooms twice a year filling the desert with yellow flowers and than white puffs of seed. We gather from these bushes by stripping the fresh green leaves from the stems that appear right before they bloom. Pulling a handful at a time and slowly filling our cloth bags. When they are full we walk home, emptying the bags onto drying screens in our drying house. After they are dry we crush the leaves from the stems and separate out the big stems. Later I grind the leaves just before mixing with the other oils and ingredients that go into this incredible ointment/salve. Organic Avocado oil, Kukui nut oil and Shea nut butter are used because they are all purported to be beneficial for eczema and psoriasis.
