Mockingbird Meadows formulates their Clover Balm to soothe serious dry skin issues. Red Clover, the humble weed that’s at the center of this formula, has been known for centuries for its abilities to help heal symptoms of eczema+. It is especially good for childhood eczema, but the formula has quite a devoted following from both adults and children.
Red clover is the main attraction of this formula. The addition of lanolin makes this balm heavier and greasier than the other balms the farm produces. Those qualities are just what is required to deliver the deep moisture needed to address a dry skin condition, such as eczema. Mockingbird Meadows has seen some improvement for various forms of psoriasis, as well. Try applying this gently scented balm before bedtime, when you will not need to be as active. If you can, add a covering of some sort to the affected area to help lock in the moisture.
How It’s Made:
The owners of Mockingbird Meadows makes this healing balm by slowly infusing red clover into olive oil over a period of at least six weeks, using the light and energy from the sun and moon. Next, the they add their fresh, chemical-free beeswax, raw honey, organic vitamin E, lanolin, and bergamot essential oil.
This product — and all other Mockingbird Meadows products — is formulated by Dawn Combs, a trained herbalist, ethnobotanist, teacher, and long-time contributor to Mother Earth News and Mother Earth Living magazines. Don’t miss Dawn’s excellent book, Heal Local.
