Health + Beauty


We are all about finding new salves and balms for the winter–for ourselves and our kids. This one called Potlatch Hand Salve, is one of our new favorites this season. Besides the fact that it has been keeping our hands from cracking/flaking this winter, we love the packaging, and the story behind it. Merryl Spence, the founder, got her inspiration for Potlatch Remedy when she was working with inmates at Riker’s in a horticultural therapy program. “The program director often made salves and lotions with the inmates utilizing many herbs and native plants from the garden. I was moved by the relief so many people found in both this practice and this place. My evenings at home in Brooklyn became filled with experiments involving me, my stove, and natural ingredients. I began combining, dissolving and solidifying these elements into what would ultimately become the product…Potlatch Remedy.”
