Prairie Gold Balm - Product Spotlight

Prairie Gold Balm - Product Spotlight

Let's talk about our "everything balm", our Prairie Gold Balm.  This is the go-to product that we run for in our home whenever there is skin irritation that needs to be soothed. I'm talking EVERYTHING:

  • cracked heels
  • scraped skin (frequent kid injury here)
  • minor cuts
  • chapped, rough skin
  • extreme dry spots
  • rashes
  • stretch marks
  • scarring
  • cradle cap (we are past that now but it was used effectively a few times over the years)
  • bruised, swollen sprains or strains
  • sore arthritic, inflamed joints

See? I meant everything!  So you're maybe wondering, but "how?".  The herbal properties from the infused herbs are powerhouses.  We infuse calendula (from our garden), comfrey and goldenrod (from the wild) into oil to make the balm.  These three herbs cover an array of skin soothing properties and this is why we refer to them as "prairie gold". 

Calendula, grown fresh in our garden, is known for its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, making it a popular choice for helping skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne. Its soothing and healing properties make it a great addition to this balm and many more of our skin care products for dry or irritated skin. Read our blog all about calendula in skin care here.

Comfrey is another herb that is highly valued for its skin healing properties. It contains allantoin, a compound that helps promote cell regeneration and repair, making it effective in helping cuts, bruises, and burns. Comfrey is also known for its anti-inflammatory and hydrating properties, making it a great ingredient in skin care products for promoting overall skin health. We foster its growth on the edge of our yard and sustainably harvest it every summer. 

Goldenrod is a wild prairie herb that is often used for its astringent and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps to tighten and tone the skin, making it a great addition to this balm aimed at reducing stretch marks or scarring. Goldenrod also helps to soothe and calm irritated skin, making it a great choice for those with sensitive skin.

We find that these three herbs, combined with shea butter and nourishing oils and beeswax, and skin-loving essential oils... creates GOLD. 

Incorporating our Prairie Gold Balm into your skin care routine can help to promote overall skin health and address a variety of skin concerns. Whether you're looking to soothe irritation, promote healing, or improve the overall appearance of your skin, this gold can offer a natural and effective solution for your skin care needs, becoming your own go-to balm.
