FAT AND THE MOON || BITE AND BURN SPRAY
If you’re looking to add an herbal dimension to your basic first aid kit, let me introduce the Bite & Burn Spray! Mild burns and insect bites can be given a quick spritz to aid in pain and faster recovery of your ow-ified skin. Witch hazel contains tannins which help the skin to tighten and therefore reduce swelling and pain and promote faster healing of broken skin. Witch hazel also acts as a antimicrobial, sending opportunistic bacteria on their way.
Fat and the Moon's yarrow hydrosol bring the first aid properties of the plant. Along with being astringent and anti microbial, yarrow aids the skin in minimizing scarring and inflammation. Lavender and tea tree essential oil also act as antimicrobials as well as anti-inflammatories and antiseptics.
But let’s not focus on their ‘anti’ side too much, because all of the ingredients in the Bite & Burn Spray are way pro healing.
Side note: for all burns, don’t apply any kind of ointment when you are first burned as it will trap in the ‘heat’ and your burn can get more serious. Give a good Bite & Burn spritz to the area and let dry, after a day you can apply ointment to mend your skin.

And if you were wondering why 'Fat and the Moon'....
Fat as the first word in the name of my business has gotten me in some interesting discussions. People ask me about the name all the time because they can hardly believe I would use a word that has such negative connotations, especially when it is used within ‘beauty care’.
In part, I use the word ‘fat’ to be provocative; I don’t believe fat is a dirty word. But most of the fat in Fat and the Moon comes from my love of the material- oil is the medium of external herbal medicine. Fat in the form of oil, is the gift of the seed. Fat, both in plants and animals, is where energy is stored. The richness we taste in food, and the suppleness we feel on our skin after a good slather of bath oil, is our bodies recognition of and pleasure in that vital energy. Oil from plants, in and of itself, is medicinal. I feel honored as a medicine maker to indulge in the play of fat and herbs, especially under the influence of the moon.
