L❤️VE General Salve Rose Scent

I love this product. Actually I’m slightly obsessed with it.
It is not greasy. And the gentle scent of this product is wonderful. ❤️

A Godsend during these cold months

My lips and hands get so dry when it is cold outside. I’ve added the General Salve No. 18 to my skin care routine by applying a small amount to my lips and hands and they stay hydrated all day! No more cracking and dryness!


I thought this product was wonderful. Smooth, lovely fragrance and as advertised. I will purchase other products.

smooth, soothing and effective

I love how deeply penetrating the salve has on my skin. It feels like it is moisturizing all day long. The scent is light and pleasant as well!

Helped with my eczema!

I've always had dry, chapped hands with eczema around my knuckles. I've been using this product for a couple weeks and it is so much better than before! My hands are actually soft.
