Alaskans love devil's club salve and so should you! It is a household staple.
Devil’s Club (Oplopanax horridus) is a healing salve that can be used as a treatment for eczema, burns, scratches, and dry skin. It increases blood circulation and is great as a topical pain reliever. Devil’s Club Salve is made with pure Alaskan elements. For external use only.
This spiky, showy plant has been nicknamed Alaskan ginseng and historically used internally as an energy booster and to fight off illness and externally not only for wounds and ailments but as a protective force above doorways. It has been reported that bears have been seen rolling in the roots to soothe their wounds.
Revered by local natives and sourdoughs (and critters too!) Devils Club continues to be used by many throughout Alaska.
Apply 3-4 times daily or as needed.
Contents: olive oil, apricot oil, W Alaskan devil’s club bark, and O beeswax.

*When used internally those with diabetes should take care as Devil’s Club has been shown to reduce blood sugar. Do not use it if you are pregnant or nursing.
*A small skin test is recommended.
