What ingredients do you use to prepare this anti-septic salve?
Our salve is made with organic turmeric, organic virgin coconut oil and beeswax. All ingredients used are certified as organic by the FDA, vegetarian and not tested on animals.

What are the healing properties of this salve?
The turmeric-coconut oil-beeswax combination assigns anti-septic, anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal healing properties to this salve. These properties allow for effective disinfecting of wounds and burns to the skin.

How should this salve be applied?

Natural turmeric is known for staining yellow. Does this salve stain?
Yes. You may see a temporary yellow stain on your skin upon application. However, the stain should disappear within a day or even earlier. We recommend being careful with accidentally staining your clothes.

Does this salve produce any allergic reaction or other negative side effects?
This salve is a 100% natural product made from organic turmeric, organic virgin coconut oil and beeswax. These natural ingredients have been proven effective and devoid of any negative side effects or allergies. However, every skin type is different and reacts differently to anything that is applied to it. So, if you are allergic to any of the three ingredients used in this salve, we recommend checking with your healthcare provider prior to applying it to your skin. Additionally, as with any healing product - organic or synthetic, there is always a possibility of negative side effects or allergies when using this salve. We therefore recommend performing a small patch test or consulting with your doctor if you have any concerns or have special medical conditions, are pregnant, nursing, taking medication or being treated for any health-related condition or allergies.

What is the shelf-life of this salve?
This turmeric-based salve is made only from natural organic ingredients and does not contain any artificial colors or synthetic and chemical preservatives. Therefore, unlike chemical-based products, this salve is not made to last for years at end. Once opened and used, this salve should last for a period of 1 year, depending on usage. Please bear in mind that once opened, this salve is exposed to moisture as well as various elements in the air such as bacteria, allergens, etc., which affects its shelf life. For a prolonged life, ensure that the lid is kept tightly shut after use to avoid direct exposure to air and moisture.

Does this salve have any specific storage requirements?
There are no specific requirements in terms of storing this salve. However, we would recommend keeping the container closed when not in use, thereby avoiding any exposure to the moisture and air around it.

Does this salve contain Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)?
Absolutely not! This is the very simplest, natural and basic form of salve containing organic turmeric, organic virgin coconut oil and natural beeswax. As mentioned previously, all ingredients are certified as organic by the FDA.
