This ointment is called for when a cut or wound has a potential to become infected. The herbs are super-healing and anti-bacterial in action. The goldenseal and myrrh powders help keep the wound clean, and have anti-bacterial action as well.  
I have used this ointment on chicks that are getting pecked with tremendous success. Also great for cuts and wounds on feet, which tend to get dirty.

Be sure to fully clean out any cuts or wounds before using this ointment.

Our Full Line of Herbal Salves 



Breathe-Easier Salve (with Elecampane Root Tea)


Made with: Certified Organic Thyme, Certified Organic Elecampane Root, and Certified Organic Chaparral infused into Extra Virgin Olive Oil, with Beeswax, Vitamin E, and Eucalyptus, Lavender, and Thyme Essential Oils.


8 oz.


Observe: Discontinue use at any signs of allergic reaction.


Note: This product is not to be used as a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis or treatment of any health condition or problem. 

This salve is for any sort of congestion and respiratory issues - it helps bring up mucus and decongests. It is best used in combination with elecampane tea. So when you order our Breathe-Easier Salve, we will also send you an 8 ounce container of elecampane, grown in our organic field of elecampane and dried in small batches. 

This is a more unusual use of herbal salves - our Breathe-Easier Salve is made to be breathed in - so not so much something to be applied externally to the skin, but to be placed in spots where your animal will breathe it in. 

I have wiped it on dog beds and cat pillows. A little applied around the nose of animals works well - just start with a tiny dab to make sure your animals isn't overly sensitive. I also rub into my chicken's wattles and around their beaks.


I also put some under my chickens' wings just before they go to bed so when they put their heads under their wings to go to sleep, they experience its benefits.

Tightening and Healing Salve (Astringent)


Made with: Certified Organic Comfrey, Certified Organic White Oak Bark, Certified Organic Yarrow, and Certified Organic Yellow Dock infused into Extra Virgin Olive Oil, with Beeswax, Vitamin E, and Lavender Essential Oil. 


8 oz.


Apply: Rub gently onto affected area.


Observe: Discontinue use at any signs of allergic reaction.


Note: This product is not to be used as a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis or treatment of any health condition or problem. 

This salve is effective at tightening and healing - very good for treating things like prolasped vent in poultry, hemorrhoids and anal sac inflammation, also good for staunching bleeding from minor cuts and wounds. And it is healing in general for any wound or injury. 


I keep this salves very soft so it will be gentle to apply. The peppermint scent will repel insects and will also cool the bite.

Complementary Approach: Salves are applied externally but herbs and foods also are very effective at treating these same conditions. Try an herbal tea made with White Oak Bark, Yarrow, Yellow Dock, and /or Red Root.

These herbal remedies come in 8 ounce tubs. They are safe and edible so you don't have to worry if your animal licks it off. 

They are handmade with love in small batches right here at Midsummer Farm, an organic, biodynamic, and permaculture farm.

The herbs that we infuse into these salves are mostly grown here - if we need to buy herbs in we use Mountain Rose Herbs.

What's with the plastic? 

Why do we use plastic tubs for these Poultry, Farm, and Pet Salves?
We switched to plastic after hearing back from several of our customers that the glass containers were a bit dangerous in barn and animal situations - you're combining a feisty animal with a oily salve container and dropping the container is a higher possibility than with human products. Broken glass is definitely not something you want near your animals, so we switched to the big and easy to use plastic tubs.
