Our bites, stings, & itches salve is a proprietary blend of organic and wild-crafted plant ingredients with organic coconut and olive oils, and beeswax. It is for topical use only.

This salve may support a healthy histamine response, and assist the skin to recover from rashes! It can also be used as a moisturizer and to protect against winter dryness. We chose herbs for this salve with these objectives in mind; while plantain may impart an antiseptic action on insect bites and may draw out irritants, bee balm and jewelweed may reduce welts, rashes, and itching.

Because we do not add aromatic essential oils to our products, this salve only has a gentle, slightly vegetal scent unnoticeable to others within your vicinity. Your natural body heat will melt this oil-based product and allow small amounts to spread easily across the affected area.

PLEASE NOTE: this product is not intended for use in cases of Poison Ivy rashes, as oil based topicals are likely to further spread this rash! 

Because we know the power of full spectrum plant extracts, we use herb infused oils rather than essential oils as the basis for the beneficial actions of our salves. Our topicals are made from raw plant matter precisely extracted with low heat into the finest organic oils. They are then blended with locally sourced beeswax to enhance texture and preserve the beneficial herbal properties.

Our skilled in-house herbalists created forager’s formulas to offer consumers a simple yet powerful way to take back their health while cultivating a deeper connection with nature. Each formula is designed to support the healthy functioning of specific internal bodily systems using relevant plants, herbs, and fungi. 100% of proceeds from our forager’s formulas support foragers who work to regenerate healthy landscapes. 

We are a small team of herbalists, foragers, permaculturists, and outdoors people based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Our mission is threefold: to build resilient community by providing healthy food and medicine, nature-based education, and dignified, meaningful employment; to rehabilitate damaged wild ecosystems by integrating skilled and knowledgeable professionals into the landscape; to create a viable business model that transforms neglected wild spaces into sustainable agroforestry preserves. 

All of our tinctures are made from responsibly grown or ethically wildcrafted herbs and organic alcohol and glycerin. Our salves are beeswax and oil-based. Our team bottles and packs each and every product by hand in our safe, sanitary production facility. We create all of our products in small batches, with reverence and love for the Earth and all of her inhabitants. You can read more about us at
