Mitigate the effects of daily life with MITI herbal salve. This nourishing salve is infused with herbs to nourish dry irritated skin. MITI has been formulated to be a go-to salve for nourishing all over… including beards and tattoo aftercare.
Originally formulated to help reduce the effects of “dishpan hands” for our founder, Kandra, MITI has been formulated to be a go-to salve for nourishing all over… including tattoo aftercare and beards! Miti salve uses light oils that readily absorb into the skin, shea butter for nourishment, and a light addition of beeswax for stability. You’ll find all of our salves to be silky soft and readily absorbable. All of our salves are formulated to melt when applied and feel firmer than traditional “creams”. In cooler climates, use the back of your fingernail to remove the salve from the tin.
For dry and dish panned hands: massage in a dab of Miti and breath a sigh of relief.
For tattoo aftercare: apply a small amount to the tattooed skin.
For beards: apply a dab of Miti to style and moisturize the beard. Massage into the skin for extra nourishment.

If melting does happen, you can simply pop the product into the fridge to solidify and it will still be usable (though may not look as pretty!). In fact, we highly recommend that you put your products into the refrigerator or freezer prior to opening. This will help ensure that your products are solid, and will avoid spilling the melted product upon opening.
Body butter is a great way to lock in moisture for your entire body. We have customers who use it every day on hair, face, and all the way to their toes! Simply scoop out a small amount of the butter, warm in your hands, and apply.

Apply a pea sized amount of body butter to ends of your hair for a super intense conditioner.
Body butter is a wonderful moisturizer for your face but only use a tiny dab.
Rub an ample amount on dry feet, cover with socks and wake up with supple moisturized toes.
