Our Nørdik Baby Scandinavian Salve was formulated using an old Swedish formula to create a wonderful Scandinavian Salve.

Our Scandinavian Salves are packaged in a silver metal tin with a screw cap and a round label attached.
The quality ingredients that go into this product include the following:
Our base oil is used at a very high percentage of the mix. This beautiful oil is from the olive fruit using cold press extraction and decanting methods. Extremely beneficial for the skin, olive oil contains high levels of vitamins A & E, oleic acid and antioxidants. It also makes a great carrier oil for use with any essential oils. Our premium grade organic extra virgin olive oil penetrates deep into the skin, providing needed moisturizing as well as a shield to protect the skin, keeping it smooth, and due to its high level of antioxidants A & E, it can repair skin damage from sun exposure, cigarette smoke and pollutants.
Almond oil is acquired from dried almonds through a process called cold pressing. The good thing about using this skin care product is the benefits derived from its vitamins such as E, A and D. It is also rich in oleic and linoleic acids. It is mostly used as a skin care product but is also used as a medicinal oil for some skin disorders. Almonds have a way of trapping moisture in the skin keeping it moisturized at all times. Better still, its high lubricating quality makes many users stick to using it as their daily skin care product. Emollient properties refer to the ability of the almond oil to get absorbed into your skin. It is also used in many spas for its less fragrant and less greasy qualities. It is also useful in massages as it restores the normal PH of the skin and allows the skin to glow thus preserving moisture.
Known mostly for its conditioning properties, beeswax also has a number of other benefits for the skin, including an anti-inflammatory action that helps to calm and soothe. When applied to the skin, beeswax forms a protective barrier that helps protect it from environmental assaults, while also holding in moisture and reducing dryness. This is one of the reasons beeswax is often used in lip balms. Unlike ingredients made from petroleum, however, beeswax doesn't “suffocate” the skin, and won't clog pores. Some ingredients “attract” water, and beeswax is one of them. When you put it on, you attract water molecules, helping to keep skin hydrated over time. Beeswax is an overall wonderful ingredient for lip balms.
Tocopherol is the organic chemical compound of vitamin E and is an antioxidant and cellular renewal ingredient.
Rosewood essential oil is sometimes referred to as Bois-de-rose Oil. Aromatically, the oil has a subtle, yet surprisingly sweet, woody, fruity aroma with a floral quality to it. I don't typically refer to wood oils as "beautiful" oils, but this certainly is a beautifully aromatic oil that holds a dear place in holistic aromatherapy as well as natural perfumery. It is a versatile oil that blends well with other wood, citrus, spice, herbaceous and floral oils.
Cold pressed from the rind of the Lemon, this bright oil has an uplifting, delightful aroma. Powerful in aromatherapy, Lemon essential oil calls to mind a feeling of cleanliness and refreshment. Used in body care products, it has been shown to brighten and tone dull skin.
Steam distilled from the flowers heads of the Chamomile plant. Chamomile essential oil is naturally calming, used in teas to promote relaxation and in bath and body products to sooth the skin as well as the senses. The essential oil is actually blue! The flower contains azulene (chamazulene) which gives it a blue color. We use Chamomile in several of our “Facial Products” due to its healing and calming properties.
This essential oil is steam distilled from the leaves and flowers of the Rose Geranium plant. It has a gentle floral scent with a minty fresh finish. Geranium essential oil has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Used in skin care, it can help balance the function of the oil glands and has cellular regenerating properties.
This essential oil is steam distilled from the plant. Palmarosa essential oil has a sweet, floral fragrance with a hint of rose.
Ylang Ylang Essential oil, (most floral), Indonesia, is powerfully floral, extremely sweet, with floral-woody undertones. The complete Ylang Ylang is obtained by continuous steam distillation of the fresh flowers. This complex oil is considered one of the most exotic essential oils available.
Steam distilled from the leaves and flowers of the Lavender plant, this beautiful floral oil is generally regarded as the most useful and versatile essences for therapeutic purposes. One of our favorite ingredients, it is soothing and calming, but also stimulating and refreshing. We source our Lavender from the high altitude regions of France. This is considered to be the best Lavender in the world, and many of our customers agree. Our most popular products utilize this essential oil.
While Rose is referred to as the “Queen of Oils,” Jasmine is known as the “Queen of the Night.” While most Jasmine flowers bloom during the night, this oil comes from the Jasmine that blooms during the day and is considered the fun loving fragrance. One of the best oils for skin care and can be used for all kinds of skin, though it works best on dry, sensitive skin.
This essential oil is steam distilled from the petals of the rose flower. Prized as a premium essential oil, Rose essential oil is refered to as “The Queen of Oils”. Rose essential oil is very valuable and rare due to it's high cost to produce.
Cloudberries are wild berries that grow all over Finland, but are most abundant in boggy areas around the Arctic Circle. Because of its ability to survive temperatures of -40° F, the Cloudberry is one of the few flowering plants to have spread to the farthest north. Its geographical location, with nights that are significantly colder than the days, enables Cloudberries to produce twice as much vitamin C as oranges. Cloudberry Seed oil contains large amounts of linoleic and alpha-linoleic acid (omega 6 & omega 3), vitamins A and E, and plant sterols. It strengthens skin, prevents aging and due to its antioxidant effects, protects skin from external factors. Moreover, the detoxification properties of Cloudberry Seed oil help to make the skin look brighter and more radiant. The benefits of Cloudberry seed oil have been studied in numerous independent cosmetic labs. It has been proven from investigations in independent labs in Finland to be one of the most effective antioxidants for preventing oxidation of the skins structure.
We recommend that you apply your Scandinavian Baby Salve every day. Because of the heavy formulation only a small amount will be necessary. It may seem a little greasy when first applied, but it does readily soak into the skin, doing its job of quick healing. Smooth into skin, massage gently and enjoy your soft skin and great Nordic Baby scent.
