Creosote Salve - 2 fl. oz

We've captured the desert Creosote plant, or Chaparral (Larrea tridentata, Zygophyllaceae), and crafted a salve around it. In plant form Creosote smells like desert rain, fresh and green. This salve smells green and earthy, if you've spent any time in the Southern Arizona desert, it will smell very familiar. 

Our creosote salve is green, creamy, and highly nourishing. Perfect for dry, scaly skin, rough patches or itchy spots.

Works wonders for cracked hands!

As someone who lives in a cold climate, this salve is amazing on those winter hands. Just use a tiny bit to help super dried, cracked hands that need moisture. I am such a fan of this product that I have given it as a gift to very happy recipients. I appreciate how it treats dry skin without being oily or greasy.

Pleasant surprise

When we bought our first little house we had a brick patio put in our backyard. Then we tackled the overhead roof project ourselves. This required painting layers of creosote on the posts on the parts that would be buried in the ground. It was a nasty, messy job and I did not care for the smell. So, when I saw different products in your shop boasting a creosote fragrance I was never tempted to try any of them. But then I read your description about how wonderful it was bc it was the smell of the dessert after a good rain I suddenly became very interested in trying some of your creosote products. I can't say I actually know what the dessert smells like after a drenching rain, I can say the fragrance is quite wonderful~subtle, fresh, clean, earthy. I decided to try this salve as I have been having problems with the tops of my hands since during the pandemic I washed my hands constantly and still wash them quite often. As a result the tops of my hands are rough feeling with scaly flaky skin. I've tried many hand lotions, even tried organic sesame oil (which is great on the rest of my body) but nothing really helped my hands until I tried this wonderful salve. This stuff really works and it will be a constant in my skincare routine in the future.

I use this as my main beard balm as well as for dry hands. Great smell, soothing, and my go-to for these purposes!


A wonderful Salve for living in the desert for the hydration and for the smell of monsoon rain

Awesomeness for relief from itching

My husband had cancer and did a immunotherapy treatment. Side effects was itching and fatigue. The itching was very bad around ankles, arms and top of feet his incision area. We were on my 60th birthday travel and came upon this awesome little shop. We tried the creosote salve and soap for his itching and it worked. It smells so good just like after a rain in the desert on creosote bushes. Highly recommend this product as a great healing salve and complement it with the soap use.
