Soothing Salve

$32.00 each

The much-loved and highly popular all-natural Soothing Salve is ideal to use to support healing of the perineum after childbirth, perfect for small tears, grazes, “skid marks” etc.

The Soothing Salve is made from gentle, natural ingredients sourced from home-grown, home-run businesses just like Blissful Herbs.

Not only are the ingredients healthy for body and planet, but I'm so pleased to be able to support other family-based and local businesses, through using their quality ingredients in the Soothing Salve. 

It's a great thing to have in the birthing woman's 'birth kit', along with the Post Natal Bliss healing bath herbs, for a fantastic post natal healing regime.

It is also perfect for using during nappy changes. It makes meconium so easy to wipe away, and it moisturises the skin and helps prevent nappy rash.

It is specially formulated to also be safe to use for nipple care during breastfeeding. Apply after feeds, and by the time you feed again, the salve will have been absorbed into your skin. There is no need to wash or rinse your nipples.

It can also be used for general family first aid, for minor skin problems like cuts, scrapes, grazes, itchy bites, rashes and mild eczema.

The Soothing Salve contains:

Cold-pressed virgin Olive Oil which has been infused with herbs by the Solar Method – (Lavender, Calendula, Comfrey, Goldenseal, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme).

Organic Coconut Oil – healing, moisturising, naturally anti-septic, excellent for eczema and to support hormone balance.

Organic Rosehip Oil – contains EFAs (essential fatty acids), necessary for protecting cell membranes as well as vitamin E, beta carotene and the antioxidant lycopene, excellent for soothing, moisturizing and healing the skin.

Organic Calendula Oil – with anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial anti-fungal and antiseptic effects, excellent for skin healing, moisturising and to treat nappy rash and eczema. Rich in anti-oxidants and helps reduce bruising.

Organic Hempseed Oil – rich in EFAs and GLAs, particularly helpful for skin rashes, eczema etc.

Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) - a potent vulnerary healing herb with anti-microbial actions.

Organic Beeswax – rich in propolis, another superb healing agent from nature.

My unique blend of pure organic essential oils, which gives the salve a beautiful subtle scent.



"Ahh... Blissful Herbs Soothing Salve, I haven’t even finished my jar and I’m in love. I could smell it the second I opened my latest package from Blissful Herbs, and immediately tried it as a lip balm. Since then it has been a treatment for eczema, nappy rash, mozzie bites, and a 4-year-old’s bruised ego, and has treated all with amazing success! 

The texture is lovely, and soaks in quickly, leaving soft skin and a yummy fragrance, that even my super-sensitive husband didn’t turn his nose up at! If a little hard on colder days, it warms up quickly with body heat and doesn’t leave a greasy layer. 

 Eczema is much improved almost immediately as the dry skin is remedied on application, my skin just drinks up the salve, and with consistent, longer term use my skin should heal properly. Mild nappy rashes are visibly improved within a couple of hours and gone within a day, not to mention the gentle herbal fragrance from the salve is a pleasant surprise on opening a worn nappy! I’m loving it as a lip balm too, a thin layer soothes chapped lips quickly, and lasts for ages, and doesn’t transfer to glasses or affect the taste of my food. 

Knowing it’s all natural is wonderful with four busy children under 8, who ‘need’ to have cream on every bumped knee, and while I would previously say no to (chemical) cream unless there was a ‘real’ injury, the Soothing Salve is a lovely option to let them have their bumps treated every time, without worrying about what else is going into their skin. 

Feels great, smells great, and works great! Can’t recommend it enough!"

  1. "Put on the Julie Bell Salve"
    By on February 28, 2024

    This is my response to every ache and scratch and sore in my household. We have tins beside every bed, in every room, in every bag and in the car! Should be the staple for every First Aid Kit. Smells divine, feels divine, heals divinely. Absolutely love this stuff. Get a tin...

  2. Amazing product!
    By on December 6, 2022

    This product is a family fave! We were recommended to Julie at the beginning by our Doula. And we are so glad we have found her and all her amazing products.

    We bought the Soothing Salve to be used purposely for any nappy rashes for our newborn baby. And now the whole family uses it for our lips, dry skin, skincare in general and everything in between! Love love love it!!!

  3. This product is AMAZING!
    By on September 20, 2022

    I've been using this product ever since my little bubs arrived earthside, 7 months ago and it's been the best product ever. I highly recommend this product for all family members, especially our little ones. No nasties, very soft, soothing and makes them smell even more delicious than they already are.

  4. Best Salve on the market
    By on August 8, 2022

    Soothing Salve is used for EVERYTHING in our household. For babies bums, birth tears, dry lips, skin irritations, cracked heals in summer and mild infections from cuts and scrapes and so much more. I've put two of my girlfriends onto it and they haven't looked back either! I will repurchase this over and over. Thanks always Julie!!

  5. buy the big tin!
    By on July 23, 2022

    I received this in the freebirth kit I ordered, wowowowowow I'm addicted I love it.

    I used it mostly on my newborn. He unfortunately got a bit of nappy rash. I tried standard creams you get from the supermarket and it just wouldn't go away. I used this for 2 days and his nappy rash was gone.
    He also had some mild cradle cap and baby acne on his face, ears and chest. this has worked well at keeping his skin hydrated and removing the crusty cradle cap!
    I love this. Before I finished the small jar I got in my freebirth gift set I ordered this because it's fantastic!
    I will get this as a gift for all mums and bubs it's beautiful ??

  6. Soothing Salve works wonders!
    By on April 9, 2022

    I’ve been so astounded at how quickly this magical salve works - On application for a red bottom, with the next nappy change the redness is almost gone. We have found many uses for this salve and it works every time! I love it so much!

  7. Perfect purchase for the minimalist
    By on August 12, 2021

    This has been my favourite purchase so far. Never needed to buy nipple cream, nappy rash cream or bite cream. This takes care of it all and such handy smaller jars to put in a nappy bag for on the go. Minimises both what I need to buy and what I need to pack and no nasty chemicals!

  8. Replace everything you got for THIS!
    By on October 27, 2020

    This Soothing Salve is all you need for LITERALLY everything! I was lucky to have had it in my free-birthing kit and then Julie chucked in another little extra one after we placed another order with her. Wishing I hadn't given it away to friends to try but they were so good, I couldn't keep it all to myself!

    I swear by it. Nappy rash, cracked nipples, itches, sores, bites, scraps, post birth (tears) etc one go of it and the next day, the redness is gone, swelling gone, itch gone and it's like it HEALS everything INSTANTLY!

    It's that good if your 8yo comes asking for it whenever they've hurt themselves... haha!

  9. Absolute best salve on the market
    By on September 19, 2019

    I tried about 5 different types of natural, chemical-free creams and balms to soothe my daughter's nappy rash that was quite bad in the first month of her life.
    This stuff is BY FAR the best.
    10/10 would recommend to anyone.
    It’s not sticky or oily and cleared my daughters rash in 2 days.

  10. It's a winner!
    By on July 15, 2019

    This is the only thing that soothed my husbands chronic skin conditions, especially in winter when cold dry air made him so itchy and sore.
    also cracked for dry hands, lips, dry cheeks, even some warmed between your hands is great for the ends of your hair :)

    Soothe Salve has been my saviour, especially in the early weeks of my breastfeeding journey. It helped soothe blisters, grazes and extremely sensitive nipples. I have also used this product for a multitude of things including nappy rash, scratches, grazes and dry skin. Soothe Salve will continue to be a staple in my first aid kit as a natural alternative to treating cuts, grazes and skin irritations. Thank you Julie x

    The whole family is using the Soothing Salve for everything but I'm most impressed at how lovely it is for nappy rash.

  17. So dreamy
    By on May 2, 2018

    This salve smells delicious and is sincerely and smooth for using on various owies. My little ones love it on their lips and all their bumps and scratches. I've been using it on my nipples after cluster feeding sessions etc ever since having my third baby and it feels more effective than other products I've tried.

  18. great for after birth
    By on April 27, 2018

  20. Magic Salve!
    By on March 6, 2018

    I use this on everything! Abrasions, mosquito bites, sore nipples - it is magic! Healing like breastmilk which I also use on ailments. You only need a little bit - it is just delicious!

  21. Soothing Salve - the best!
    By on March 3, 2018

    Everytime my granddaughter (8) comes to our house, she asks to use my Soothing Salve for her dry lips. So I have ordered her own tin for her 9th birthday!! I have used it on sores, and rashes as well as dry lips etc. Awesome results.

  22. By on February 27, 2018

    This is just like natures breastmilk! Apply it to anything to fix everything. Crazy love for this product!

  23. By on February 24, 2018

    Cant be without this Soothing Salve... Its so good. I first noticed how amazing this was when I had really dry lips. One application and the next day my lips were fixed. I was then hooked... Awesome for cuts, bites rashes and sunburn. Love love love this product.

  24. I'm hooked

  25. The only salve you'll ever need!
    By on February 20, 2018

    Seriously this is the only salve you'll ever need. It's truly magic, soothing everything from burns to grazes to mozzie bites to rashes to chapped lips to dry sore noses from too many tissues. Now every time my 3 year old has a sore or bite he always asks for some of 'mummy's special medicine'. And because you only need a tiny bit, a jar lasts for such a long time! I recommend this salve to everyone, I'm sure people get sick of me raving about it haha!

  26. Works for so many sores
    By on February 20, 2018

    I had a couple of grazes post-birth which this helped fix super fast. The bigger shock was that recently my mother got hives around her hips & one application of this soothing salve & it had basically disappeared! This one will definitely go in the first aid kit permanently.

  27. Amazing for everything!
    By on February 20, 2018

    Highly recommend, we have been using this beautiful salve for years now. For nappy rash, sore nipples, bites, bruises, cuts, rashes and everything in between! I always have a jar of soothing salve wherever i go.

  28. Magic in a jar!!
    By on February 20, 2018

    This is my favourite Blissful Herbs product (it's hard to choose just one, but this wins for versatility)! I use it on EVERYTHING, cuts, bites, chapped lips, nappy rash, scrapes, etc! It's my go to "boo-boo" cream and I recommend it to everyone - we absolutely love it in our home <3

  29. Honestly it's a miracle
    By on February 19, 2018

    I cannot rave enough about Julie's salve. There is almost nothing this salve cannot fix. I've been using it continuously for over 2 years. It has cleared up nipple pain, cracks, and itchiness. Nappy rash from newborn - two year old. Haemorrhoids (external) during pregnancy, post birth, and not pregnant or birth related. It gets put on every bite and boo boo. In my family it has speed up healing and reduced any infection of grazes. Helped with sunburn also. I swear it has halved our chemist bill.
