Living in Minnesota, a state that experiences some of the coldest, driest air in the world several months of the year, skin moisturizing products are a necessity, not an option. Unfortunately, most of the skin care options available are petroleum based, filled with toxic chemicals and, quite frankly, don’t work very well. Most of those that are safe and effective are outrageously expensive.
Striving for a non-toxic lifestyle, we decided over 20 years ago that there had to be a better alternative. After much trial and error in the kitchen we came up with a salve made from beeswax and sunflower seed oil that we could easily brew up at home and worked great.
