The Spanish word ‘trementina’ has come to be used as the name for the sap of the pinyon tree of New Mexico. Folk remedies made from this sap have been used for centuries to relieve dry, cracked skin, abrasions and scrapes, and for drawing out splinters, and it really works! The pinyon sap and beeswax also contribute a wonderful aroma!
Made in New Mexico’s ‘curandera’ tradition by our friend Pamela, who climbed the pinyon trees to gather the sap, purified it, and infused it in olive oil and beeswax to create this rare traditional salve. Each tin of salve comes in a lovely organza gift bag.
