The berries and leaves of Juniper have been used as a healing medicine for many moons. Taken internally, it can be used to aid in digestive issues, gout symptoms, to bring about menstruation, and to kill parasites. However, externally it has been shown to have antifungal properties (killing Candida Albicans!!), antibacterial properties, anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidant properties, stimulate circulation, and relieve arthritis pain. All of these properties blend together to create a beautiful tonic for your skin. For centuries the leaves of Juniper have been used to treat various skin conditions like psoriasis, acne, and eczema.

The addition of pine needles and pine resin incorporates high levels of vitamin C, a potent antioxidant that can help boost collagen production and protect the skin from sun damage. The flavonoids and terpenes in pine are also anti-inflammatory, reducing redness and irritation in the skin.

Oak bark's high tannin content makes it the perfect ally for inflammatory issues, such as skin irritations, wounds, and hemorrhoids. Oak bark is astringent, anti-inflammatory, and anti-bacterial.

All foraged here on our farm in Leesville, SC, combined together, slowly infused into rich, organic olive oil, and blended with tallow fat from cows that I raised myself makes this medicine extra special. Tallow is high in vitamins A, D, K, E & B12. It is non-comedogenic, meaning it will not clog your pores. It penetrates deeply to prevent dryness at a cellular level, something we all need as the days are finally getting colder. Tallow is antimicrobial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory. The addition of beeswax to the salve not only stabilizes the product, it also offers the benefits of skin-softening, enhancing skin elasticity, is anti-allergenic, anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, anti-bacterial and germicidal.

When creating this blend, not only did I have skin nourishment in mind, I also heard the voice of my dearest friend in my heart. I gifted her my earliest formulation, including lavender and arnica oil and she used to to heal scar tissue on a labial tear from her first birth (seven years ago!). She urged me to create a tallow formula that was specifically for the delicate tissues of the vaginal and perineal areas. So that's exactly what this is. Not only can the Juniper Moon Butter nourish your face, hands, arms, legs, etc. it is also perfectly gentle on scar tissue, fissures, hemorrhoids and other feminine issues and imbalances.
