Alberta's weather means dry cracked skin, especially for our hardworking hands. The Forager Tallow Salve works wonders for areas of dry, itchy skin. This handy 1oz tin is perfect for taking with you on-the-go!

The Forager gets its green hue from a combo of Plantain, Chickweed, Spruce Tips and Yarrow, slow-infused in our tallow. Combined with Jojoba Oil and the magic ingredient: delicious, sweet-smelling Beeswax!

How We Use:  Apply to areas of dry skin, scrapes, rashes, burns, bites or anywhere that needs some extra attention. Makes a great cuticle salve, diaper cream, lip balm, bug-bite salve, and so much more. The Forager is a must-have, multi-purpose salve for your bag. 

Ingredients: Simmondsia Chinesis (Jojoba) Seed Oil*, Adeps Bovis (Beef Tallow)**, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Stellaria Media (Chickweed)***, Plantago Major (Plantain)***, Achillea Millefolium (Yarrow)****, Tsuga Canadensis (Sprucetips)****

* Cold-Pressed, Unrefined

** Grass-Fed, Pasture Raised in Alberta



We’ve selected elements that we have the ability to source local to Alberta. The Forager is special because the yarrow and spruce tips are foraged on the lands of 78 Acre Woods.

• Jojoba Oil - this "oil" is technically a liquid plant wax and is often used to soothe dry, chapped skin.

• Grass-fed beef tallow is rich in Vitamins A,B12,D,E, and K - this combination is only found in animals products and are deeply hydrating to the skin. Tallow is the perfect moisturizer as it closely resembles the skin's cell structure, helping to retain the skin's natural moisture barriers.

• Beeswax - We are obsessed with the sweet smelling beeswax from our friends at Gull Lake Honey. The beeswax is what makes this into a salve and helps soften and protect skin. 

• Chickweed - this “weed” is actually an edible medicinal herb with rich mineral content. For skincare, it is often used to soothe itchy, sore skin.

• Plantain -Plantain has been used for centuries as a wound-healer by chewing up the leaves and making a poultice to put on bites or stings. Its uses are diverse and we love it for its anti-inflammatory properties.

• Spruce Tips -These are the bright green, citrusy-sweet smelling new growth on spruce trees in the spring. Spruce tips can be eaten fresh, made into tea and are rich in Vitamin C! Spruce tips have been shown to be helpful for skin regeneration.

• Yarrow - Sprinkled across the pastures of Alberta, yarrow has many benefits. Yarrow is helpful for inflammation, and restoring moisture to the skin.

    Great for healing!!!

    My son had H&F in the summer and got blisters on top of his lips and they just weren’t going away. Finally I grabbed the forager and placed some on his lip at night and no word of a lie the next day they were almost completely gone!!! Wow thank you for all you do :).

    You need this in you medicin cabinet

    Love the Forager. It is my go to product to use when we get cuts, scrapes, burns, bites. Heals it up quickly. Everyone needs this in their medicine cabinet!

    Forager for the win!

    Our baby is almost 3 weeks now. We have been using the forager as a diaper rash prevention salve since day one and so far so good! No diaper rash so far and we find we use less wipes too because it creates a barrier that doesn’t make those sticky/tough poops to wipe so tough. Overall great product. Recommend 💯 for diaper rash prevention.


    Great product recommended by my doula for my eczema during second trimester.


    Highly recommend. I reorder this all the time.
