Pine resin: is well known to aid in the speedy removal of a splinter or even a glass shard that may have penetrated the skin. According to Kiva Rose Harding, pine resin is a strong "counter-irritant." She explains that pitch encourages blood flow and aggravates immune response, giving the local area a boost in immunity. This process can increase inflammation, and therefore also adding some discomfort, however this action is what speeds healing overall. Pine pitch is also warming and soothing to sore muscles, and can help loosen phlegm when rubbed on the chest. 

Sunflower: is high in vitamins A, D and E, as well as oleic acids, making it deeply nourishing and healing to damaged, dry, weathered and aged skin. 

Beeswax: from local Pacific Northwest bees is pure, filtered and moisturizing for all skin types, including those with skin sensitivities.

Vitamin E: this oil is vacuum distilled from non-GMO vegetable fats. It's high concentration of antioxidants makes it great for repairing the skin, as well as to maximize any oil-based products' freshness in which it is added.
