FAT AND THE MOON || FAREWELL FUNK SALVE
Farewell, funky feet! This salve is packed full of hearty, medicinal plants that have been used as topical treatments by our ancestors for centuries. Because these herbs work hard in their own ecosystems to strike a healthy balance with bacteria and fungi, they’re perfect allies for the woes between the toes. We infuse organic sunflower oil with black walnut, chaparral, and Oregon grape root and top it off with tea tree oil and thuja essential oil. The synergy of these powerful leaves, roots, and lichens come together to create a kick-ass salve, that’s ideal for the dry and scratchy kind of funk.

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.
