Remember to wash your hands thoroughly before applying any kind of emollient to your skin! Gently massage the oil onto any area of skin you wish to treat with soft pats in the direction of your hair follicles – best applied on slightly damp skin to really lock in that moisture. Once applied, do not expose your skin to strong sunlight, as the salve is oil-based and can thus cause sunburn much faster, even when wearing SPF.
For scars and impurities, we advise applying morning and night for at least six weeks once the skin has healed over. Improvement will depend on various things, such as where on the body the damage is, how long it's been there, how deep the damage goes, difference from surrounding skin, and overall health and wellbeing.
