Barnaby Black

Piñon Pine Salve

The Piñon + Juniper Woodlands of the Desert Southwest are a place of mystique and outrageous beauty. If you've been lucky enough to sit amongst these trees, you'd notice that earthy, sweet scented desert air. 

On their last trip to the desert, Barnaby Black harvested the candy-like resin dripping from snapped branches and the harder resins from the healing trunk scuffs. The resins, as well as all other parts including the pine nut, from the single leaf piñon pine have been revered for centuries by Native Americans for the antimicrobial + antibacterial properties. They offer healing medicines that can be used for revitalizing the skin to enhance your skin's ability to repair itself naturally.

Made with 100% wild foraged botanicals, from a single plant, to bring you the true essence of one species. Taking queues from nature, these salves are formulated for dry + weathered skin. Use as an all-body moisturizer or to protect + heal all types of skin. It readily penetrates the skin + and can be used as a drawing agent to pull infection and toxins from the skin to help wounds to heal.

Artisan Spotlight

Barnaby Black's simple approach to making all natural skin care products is what drives their very story - go out into the forest, forage wild aromatics + botanicals and put that into every bottle. Their fragrances are not romantic notions of a time + place. When Barnaby Black goes to the deserts, mountains or coastal wild lands of North America they have an idea of what they want to capture from that particular place but it's only after they experience the wonders of plant diversity that they begin to understand the story they would like to tell from those experiences. They let the aromatic nature of plants + trees speak their own native tongues.
