I researched and created this recipe for my husband. he had severe skin irritation and had to use heavy duty leather gloves at work all day. The cracks in his hands were so deep they bled! My heart hurt for him so I came up with this! Evergreen Original Salve is for everyone, not just those with skin issues. Use just a little bit; the salve spreads so well and soaks in so deep you'll be blown away with the results!
