Sweet Cheeks is available in two forms: a 2 oz spray bottle and a 10 ml balm stick.
Sunflower oil is rich in Omega-6 fatty acids and Vitamin E, both of which nourish the skin. Burdock root and violet each have a long history of use for soothing common skin irritations, such as eczema or diaper rash. There is some indication that burdock root may reduce inflammation and have antibacterial effects when applied topically. Violet also has demonstrated anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal effects.
When the environment permits, I gather the burdock root and violets used in my Sweet Cheeks salve in Grinnell, Iowa. The violet grows in abundance in my backyard, and there are massive burdocks growing in my nearby friend’s garden. One specimen we pulled was, from leaf to root, nearly longer than my friend is tall! When these supplies run short, especially over the winter months, I supplement with herbs purchased from Mountain Rose. The beeswax used in the balm stick comes from a backyard hive maintained by another friend who lives off a gravel road just outside of town.
