    small but mighty

    I've used other herbal balms before, but this combo of ingredients is working really well for my skin—it's helping heal a burn and a few other cuts I have very nicely without scarring. I like that it's light and not too greasy, so I can use it during the day and not leave stains everywhere.

    Very popular

    This salve is great for so many skin ailments. I can’t purchase enough of them! I gave one to my husband and then he continued to use mine up. I gave one to my elderly Dad and then he asked for another one so I gave him mine. I ended up ordering two more from your website for him before I left.

    The local store in Brooklyn seems to sell out fast too! Maybe you should make bigger jars or a gift set of three. 😊

    Great product

    I actually bought this salve several years back and it sat in a drawer. Yesterday I had a bike accident and scraped my knee and elbow pretty badly. Just by chance I was looking did something to put on the rounds and found this salve. It has helped tremendously with the healing.

    Bought this for my daughter and she loves it. She's very picky and will only use sustainable products. Fat of the Land is one of the very few brands she enjoys very much.

    The ultimate salve. My only regret is not buying more. I’ll be placing another order to stock up for one to leave in my bag, at my partners house, etc. - I can’t go anywhere without it. (Makes a stellar lip chap, too). I’m usually very sensitive and easily experience allergic reactions but not with this!
