I purchased one lavender balm while visiting my friend. I accidentally left at her house, so I told her to keep that one. I kept thinking about how nice my hands felt and smelled after using the balm. I couldn’t wait until I would visit again in a few months. So I placed an on line order which was delivered very quickly and wrapped so nicely.
Organic shea butter + silky pumpkin seed oil + essential oils
This is a thick balm for treating calloused hands, cracked cuticles, or any dry skin spots. It works wonders on cracked heals. Unlike our lotions and body butters, this formula does not have any water in it. It is 100% oils, butters, and waxes. This is a vegan-friendly formula with the addition of candelilla wax. Candelilla wax is plant derived and serves as a mild skin protectant. It provides a dry feel versus beeswax that can sometimes feel sticky.
Formulation update (May 20, 2020): This balm is a combination of two balms we used to make separately now in one convenient size and scent. We previously offered a Lavender Shea Balm and a separate Chamomile shea balm. This new formula includes the benefits of both!
Formulated by a certified aromatherapist with the following superb ingredients:
shea (butyrospermum parkii) nut butter*, pumpkin (cucurbita pepo) seed oil*, candelilla (euphorbia cerifera) wax, lavender (lavandula angustifolia) oil*, tocopherol (non-gmo vitamin e), roman chamomile (chamaemelum nobile) oil, tea tree (melaleuca alternifolia) oil*, lemon (citrus limon) oil*, frankincense (boswellia carterii) oil*, blue tansy (tanacetum annuum) oil, german chamomile (matricaria recutita) oil*, palmarosa (cymbopogon martini) oil*, and helichrysum (helichrysum italicum) oil. * = certified organic ingredient
Color and texture will vary due to natural and organic ingredients. Due to the high amount of shea butter, a mild gritty texture may occur. This is natural and will not change the moisture retaining properties of the balm.

This is my absolute favorite! It is great for soothing dry hands and also can be used as a deodorant if needed. Great to soften up any dry spots on feet or other skin area. Helps to heal minor scrapes, burns and cuts too. I have one in all of bathrooms, near the kitchen sink, in my travel kit and all hand bags. Makes a great gift too!
I got a bad burn on my elbow at work and this really helped. When it first happened I was use it was going to scar... well I used this a few times on the burn and ta-da! The burn is almost completely healed, and there is no scar in sight! Thank you Pompeii!
Hi Jess, I love, love, love the new and improved formula. It's not to hard where you have to press hard to soften it and it is not to scrub feeling. It is right in between which makes it perfect for me. A little does go a long way. I am excited about the even smaller purse size "It is the BALM". Yes pun intended! Your company is the greatest! I hope everyone loves it as much as me. I am sending you a new order as soon as I finish this review. Thanks again. Have a great summer season. I hope to be visiting Lewisburg soon to see Guin. I will stop by the shop and get more soap for my husband by then. He wants me to load him up with it.
I BOUGHT YOUR SHAE BUTTER SALVE WHEN IT WAS IN A TIN CAN AND LOVED IT. I BUT THE NEW JAR AND DO NOT LIKE THE CONSITANCY OF IT. THE SALVE IN THE TIN CAN YOU HAD BEFORE WAS SMOOTHER AND SOFTENED MY HANDS AND FEET. THE NEW PRODUCT IS GRITTIER AND HALF TO WORK IT IN THE PALM OF MY HAND TO SOFTEN BEFORE APPLYING. IT DID NOT WORK THIS YEAR ON MY HANDS AND FEET WITH THE NEW PRODUCT. THE TIN CAN FIT IN MY PURSE AND I DON'T WANT TO PUT A HEAVY JAR IN MY PURSE. EVEN MY HUSBAND SAID THE OLD STUFF WORKED BETTER. HE USE TO USE IT TOO. *RESPONSE FROM JESS* We listen to customers and have since reformulated! Leslie, please contact me personally and we'll get you a newly formulated one. 5/5/2014 - Jess Grill
