Using Skin Balm Made From Tallow

Vintage Tradition Tallow Balm. Photo courtesy of Mommypotamus (mommypotamus.com)Since tallow is very compatible with our cell biology, it is readily absorbed by the skin. Therefore, applying Tallow Balm does not result in a greasy look or feel. It is taken up by the skin as nourishment and softens the skin quickly. Furthermore, a little balm goes a very long way, unlike with most commercial lotions that contain a large amount of very expensive water. Tallow Balm can be applied anywhere on the body, including feet, hands, face, and even lips, so there is no need for multiple skin care products, not even a separate lip balm, since tallow is perfect for every skin care need.

It is interesting that, with modern skin care, a separate product is marketed for the face, presumably because it is gentler, making one wonder if this is an admission to the harshness of the not-so-natural ingredients in the body lotions. A separate product is not necessary when it is truly from nature as tallow is.

Diaper rashTallow balm can be used for all manner of skin conditions, including dry, chapped, calloused, cracked, and sun-damaged skin, rashes, burning, itching, wrinkles, and so on, because it gives the skin the nutrients it needs to heal itself. It can even be used as a soothing aftershave. One mother applied it all over her baby's body for eczema that had been present for a couple months, and it disappeared. Another mother applied it on her baby for a terrible case of diaper rash that did not respond to other "natural" products, and it was gone after three applications. In addition, a man who had had a split lip for over a year and who had already "tried everything", including "natural oils and shea butter", had his lip heal in two weeks using Tallow Balm, and "it's been healed ever since". Finally, numerous others have had success using it for calluses, dry and cracked skin, and sunburns, and for moisturizing, smoothing, and softening their skin.
