Tallow Balm - Pastured Grass-fed Tallow Balm, Hand & Body Solid Lotion, for Dry Skin

Only 16 left in stock

$4.00

All-natural semi-solid lotion, made with our own grassfed, grass-finished, hand-rendered Scottish Highland beef tallow, olive oil, almond oil, Shea butter, cocoa butter, and local beeswax, either from our own hives or from several friends with backyard bees. Comes in a metal tin, simply rub the lotion with your fingers and apply anywhere, or even use the tin as an applicator for knees, elbows, etc.  This balm is amazing for dry winter skin, feet, elbows and knees, hands, lips, or really anywhere you want your skin nourished with natural oils, and the beeswax lends staying power for truly long-lasting moisturizing.  This Tallow Balm feels identical to my Hand & Body Balm, but I love that we’re able to produce half of it right on our own farm! While the other ingredients are really wonderful and nourishing, it does bother me that I have to purchase them from pretty much the other side of the world and I feel so much better knowing that not only is grassfed tallow at least as good for my skin, but the steer that produced this tallow was born and spent his whole life on this farm.

Grassfed tallow is wonderful for skin, with its molecules more closely matching our "animal" skin oils than vegetable oils do.  It also contains those fat soluble vitamins we need such as A, D, E, and K, as well as others nutrients thought to be age- and cancer-fighting.  

The Peppermint and Tea Tree is especially good for eczema or as a diaper cream, customers have declared it "better than Desitin" and won't use anything else.  Unlike those other rash ointments, this cream will moisturize rather than drying out your baby's tender skin, while the Tea Tree oil gently but effectively clears the rash.  When I've used it, the rash is gone within hours to a day or so - without drying out the skin!

Each scent is listed as either a fragrance oil or an essential oil.  Fragrance oils are synthetic oils, often used for scents that just don't occur as an essential oil.  For example, we simply can't distill the scent of oatmeal, milk, or honey - there is no natural oil for those.  Synthetic fragrance oils are generally thought to be the #1 allergen in cosmetics, although I've never had a complaint, and I have a number of customers who use only my soaps and lotions because of extremely sensitive skin, and they use varieties with fragrance oils. 

The versions with essential oils are made with completely nature-derived oils, distilled from that plant or flower.  I prefer essential oils for their antiseptic, antimicrobial, and healing powers.  If you are looking for a healing balm/salve for irritated skin, these are what you are looking for!  If you want a great skin cream that smells amazing, any of the balms would fit that bill as well.  

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a message, I'm happy to recommend, describe, or custom-blend scents to fit your needs!  If you would like a custom scent, just choose a fragrance from the drop-down list that is close to what you would like, and then also use the optional text field to add your specific request.

Sizes (see photo for comparison of all 4):
Small is .5 oz, a lip balm size, great for pockets and bags. 
Medium is 1.5 oz, great for purses.
Large is 2.5 oz, not much larger in diameter than the medium but more than half again the balm.  

Extra-Large is 4 oz

Note: For the medium size I use a “2 oz” tin, but I carefully weigh the contents and since oils weigh less than most other liquids, these tins simply do not hold 2 oz of balm.  Filled to the brim it will hold 1.7-1.8 oz, so while my 1.5 oz tins appears to contain less than other “2 oz” tins, it should actually be about the same volume. The 2.5 oz tin is a “3 oz” tin filled right to the edge, and the 4 oz tin is also filled to the brim.
