So, its winter and my feet, hands and elbow look like I’m 105 years old. You know what I mean, ladies. I can’t seem to keep anything and everything from drying out! Of course, you could rightly point out that I did move to Utah, the second driest state in the nation, and you would have a point. Nevertheless, I still suffer…

Mom’s Stuff Salve Rescues My Skin

But only when I forget to put on my Mom’s Stuff. Nope, I’m not affiliated with Lee Bennion, the creator of this magical potion, unless you count being a fan of her product and her artwork. (Incidentally, she won a purchase award this year for one of her pieces at the LDS International Art Competition – congratulations, Lee!) 

I just can’t, in good conscience, go on being rescued by this salve and not share my great good fortune with my friends. Or even with complete strangers everywhere united by dry skin!

Mom’s Stuff Salve Ingredients:

Pine Pitch Is Great, But…

Yeah, the pine pitch is why I do not make this stuff myself. If I tell my family I’m bringing pitch into the house now, it might be the straw that broke the camel’s back. (Like I’d even have time to go foraging for pitch when I’m lucky to scrape out a shower every day!) 

I do make all our other salves, but this one I buy. Just so you know, I’m convinced that in order to keep the FDA from cracking down on her, she does NOT list the fairy dust she puts into it. That can be our little secret.

How Mom’s Stuff Salve Feels

It goes on thick-ish but the salve melts in to your skin leaving a heavenly, woodsy scent behind (the pitch). It heals and soothes – I’ve repaired everything from cracked skin to bug bites with this stuff! For dry feet and hands, I usually put it on a night so I can be sure not to wash or walk it off. A little goes a long way, too, so you really don’t need that much each day. I’m nursing the last of mine and need to order some more….Here’s where you, too, can purchase some!

Incidentally, if you’re in Utah, the lovely town of Spring City is where the Udalls make their home and you can pick some salve up in Joe’s, Lee’s husband, pottery studio. Thanks to Lee for saving the world, one set of sad feet at a time!

Making Simple Salves

    1. So sorry that I forgot to point out how to order it! I’ll make sure the FB page followers see the link…keep up the great work!

  1. Mom’s stuff is great. I love it. My daughter got an infection in her fingernail and we have been putting mom’s stuff on it and her fingers are getting better without having to use the medication the doctor wanted us to use. I’m not opposed to modern medicine but the drugs we were to use were not good for her liver. I’m very grateful that mom’s stuff is working. I’ve been taking pictures of Emma’s fingers as we progress and it is amazing!
