Spruce Resin & Pine Oil Salve
The sap of coniferous trees has powerful antimicrobial properties and has long been used as a traditional natural remedy for conditions ranging from dry and irritated skin to eczema. Loaded with antioxidants and flavonoids, this salve combines Finnish spruce resin and pine oil along with organic rapeseed oil and carnauba wax for a soothing, moisturizing balm with a pleasing woodsy scent. This potent formula is packaged in a lovely, sculptural container made of natural Finnish pine.
With no added water, this formula goes a long way. Use it on hands, feet and body. Made by Hetkinen, known for its sustainable, plant-based products from the Finnish forest.
These carefully chosen and crafted pieces represent a considered mix of the esoteric and the highly pragmatic. Many of these simple things reflect the hand of the artisan or the quiet genius of the inventor. They are useful in ways that are difficult to quantify but, if pressed, we would say they make life a little more efficient and a lot more beautiful.
