We prefer wildcrafting
Herbal Salvation prefers wildcrafted ingredients, of course sustainably and ethically gathered. If an ingredient cannot be obtained in Wildcraft quality, it will always be organic. Whenever possible we will always use fair trade certified ingredients when using more exotic ingredients such as cocoa butter, etc.
Our Wildcraft Series
Herbal Salvation was founded more than 10 years ago, when Ria made her first salves from herbs she gathered. This is the foundation for the Wildcraft Series, that is based on danish herbs that Ria gather by hand in Denmark. This series is therefore seasonal and only made in limited amounts. Each salve is made from a single herb, and is named with its danish herbal name.
Every batch is unique
All ingredients will always, besides being wildcrafted or organic, be 100% natural, unrefined and never deodorised. Therefore you might discover minor differences in e.g. colour or scent from batch to batch. We produce small batches only, 100 % handcrafted in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Our products are oil-based
All salves, balms and hair & body butters are based on vegetable oils. That makes our products mild, we don’t use any questionable chemicals, and a little goes a long way. We only use natural preservatives.
A little goes a long way
It may take a while to get used to oil-based products, and how small amounts you actually have to use. If you want to add extra moisture to your skin, simply add the salve/balm/butter when your skin is still moist after showering or application of our Floral Waters.
We have several products without essential oils. This doesn’t mean that they do not have a scent. They will always have a mild, natural scent that reflects the natural ingredients they contain. Our products without essential oils will always be clearly marked.
We have a great amount of vegan products, for example our hair & body butters, oils, cleansers and floral waters. Check our list of ingedients or send us an email, we´ll be very happy to help you out. Besides honey and beeswax from small scale local beekeepers, we do not use any animal ingredients in our products.
It’s important to us that we are concerned about our environment in other ways than in our ingredients. Therefore all our containers are made out of glass with a high percentage of recycled glass, and our labels are made from 100% recycled, unbleached paper.
