Why We Love It

Here are some of the reasons why we love Self-Heal...

1) WOUND HEALING - A wonderful combination of both astringent(ability to draw out, and constrict) and demulcent (soothing and moistening) makes self-heal amazing for wound healing. It also helps stop blood flow from a wound. 

2) RESPIRATORY AID - Commonly used as an upper respiratory aid with sore, dry, scratchy throats and colds.  It can be used whenever you feel symptoms coming on or as part of an immune-boosting formula.

3)  DEFENDER - Self-heal has been used as an anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, skin protector and an infused oil is great to heal after burns, wounds, herpes and other skin issues.
