Fat & the Moon

Balm and Buds Salve

$14.00 USD

Lemon Balm, Peppermint and a touch of Licorice coalesce to provide your lip-age with some stellar botanical support. These plants have evolved brilliant, Aikido like moves, over millennia to resist a whole range of pathogenic bacteria, fungi, and viruses. Sun exposure, stress, or other offenses compromise the bod’s ability to keep opportunistic pathogens at bay. Plants do one hell of a fine job as comrades in our resistance. 

 

HOW TO USE

 

Apply to the lips or nose area when you’re feeling that twingely, compromised feeling. For optimal relief, first apply our Balm and Buds Tincture, and seal with the salve. Apply as needed.

ABOUT FAT & THE MOON

FAT & THE MOON | Plant Potions for your Bod Garden

Continuing a family legacy of herbalists and natural healers, Fat and the Moon founder Rachel Budde has built her company around providing handcrafted, herbal body care products to those seeking a natural alternative to chemical-filled products. Like a witch over a cauldron, Budde experiments with age-old ingredients and recipes passed down from various healing traditions to craft innovative and simple products that are good for the body and the earth. Fat and the Moon started as an alternative to the toxic, mass production body care industry aiming to provide nourishing ingredients and nourishing messages of self love, and self care.

And if you were wondering why 'Fat and the Moon'....

She says, "Fat as the first word in the name of my business has gotten me in some interesting discussions. People ask me about the name all the time because they can hardly believe I would use a word that has such negative connotations,­ especially when it is used within ‘beauty care’."

"I use the word ‘fat’ to be provocative; I don’t believe fat is a dirty word. But most of the fat in Fat and the Moon comes from my love of the material- oil is the medium of external herbal medicine. Fat in the form of oil, is the gift of the seed. Fat, both in plants and animals, is where energy is stored. The richness we taste in food, and the suppleness we feel on our skin after a good slather of bath oil, is our bodies recognition of and pleasure in that vital energy. Oil from plants, in and of itself, is medicinal. I feel honored as a medicine maker to indulge in the play of fat and herbs, especially under the influence of the moon."
