Salve of the Immortal Heart
$63.00 – $95.00
White water lily, motherwort, passionflower, saltwater pearl, valerian root, skullcap, ashwaganda root, pennyroyal, white willow bark, and lily of the valley, ritually fumigated in frankincense and benzoin on the Immortal Heart election and immersed in sweet almond and olive oils, alongside prayers to the Divine Mother to provide comfort, security, and emotional safe haven.
Gently warmed on the Moon’s days to expedite therapeutic efficacy, given the tight incubation period of one Lunar cycle before being mixed with organic beeswax, essential oils of a grounding and soothing nature, and poured into tins over Mother of Pearl hearts with cape amethyst. Topped with 12k white gold.
Rub well into the soles of the feet, front and back of the heart, and shoulders for a magical full body experience in self-care. Instantly banishes anxieties and pulls the Self back into the body, regaining composure and presence. Combats dissociation and makes it possible to explore heavy emotions without the dulling impact that pharmaceuticals would have for a similar intended purpose.
Soothing, stress relieving, and especially good before bed, or as an intervention in times of intense emotional upset. The Divine Mother’s magical tranquilizer.

4 oz bulk pot for $95

a friend lost a parent last week but had to do a lot of work supporting the family around it and hasn't had anyone taking care of her & was feeling nothing, kept saying she was "fine". I rubbed the salve all over her back like a baby and we had some water. she started opening up about some details of the parent who had passed & how big of a loss it was, and I learned that we had some family stuff in common and before I knew it we were both crying, but in a good supported way. I dont know why I didnt thing having it all over my hands wouldnt count as application for me. I hope we can get some more soon
If hydrosol of IH is opening the door to the therapy session, this salve wraps you in the comforting blanket while you are processing what should be let go. Facilitates resting thoughts-free state like no other.
It's not always the most comfortable on application, but I feel held when I need to process difficult/intense emotions
IH was such a tough series for me when I first embarked on my journey. This salve was my entry point and I'm so grateful that I stuck it out. It's deeply soothing as if one is wrapped up in a sweet, nurturing sanctuary. At first, I would put the tiniest bit over my belly and/or heart and whew that felt pretty intense. Just the slightest bit would send me into tears followed by a feeling of profound safety and love. I often pair this with a self-compassion meditation or self-reiki. Eventually, I worked my way up to the oil and tincture. This is such a beautiful series - it's incredible for heart and compassion blocks. This is a treasure not to be slept on.
I'm adding this review in anticipation that there will soon be another Immortal Heart series. Hopefully there will be a salve in that one as well, and these reviews can be referenced for those curious. This has been so helpful for coping with a situation that doesn't really have a solution. The comfort and space it creates allows you to be where you are, without being overwhelmingly immersed in the emotions of it. A lot of other materia I have and use, I am actively focusing on an intention or trying to improve something. Sometimes you're too tired (for months on end) and don't have it in you to actively think about/process/apply solutions to the challenges in life. This salve feels like a container for your current state to just be.
I feel so incredibly blessed to have this salve, which has one of my all-time fav scents & applications. Before I purchased, I was afraid it might make me "too sad," but instead it's just the biggest hug & offers tremendous, gentle, yet POWERFUL support. Would love to see more offerings like this in the future. ♡
Although this is now sold out, I just want to attest to what a balm for grief this salve is. Easily my favorite of the S+S salves I own, and I'm sad my tin is running low! Massaging it into my shoulders and chest before bed after an emotionally draining day has helped me feel held and fall into deep and restorative sleep.
I have severe ptsd and sometimes the first time I know im feeling a feeling is when my nervous system gets "activated" meaning certain physical symptoms pop up as the telltale signs. I usually use this salve layered with the oil and water to prime my body for therapy where it helps me access stuff that my brain really wants to keep buried. I think the salve in particular is good for bringing that bodily memory into the breakthrough and helping my actual body move through feelings aligned with my brain and not just as a separate trapped animal. I have also used it as a trick before watching a really sad movie on purpose when I want to cry and cant make myself, I call it a cry-metic, like an emetic for when you feel like throwing up but cant. I think a lot of us thought this series was soft and comforting and only a few parts of it really are. its a gentle soft hand inviting you into your darkest spaces where you have unfinished business that youre ignoring, at least in my experience. smells herby & good but not as good as the oil & water.
This salve has been a complete game-changer for me for helping me cope with panic attacks and PTSD flashbacks that sometimes occur before bed. It's an absolute failsafe that feels and smells like a warm hug and never fails to bring me out of the fear and ground me enough to sleep. I apply a little just above my heart, and even without any prayer or further devotion, the power imbued in the salve itself grounds and stabilises me enough to get through a rough patch. I am extremely grateful that this magic came into my life at a time when I most needed it.
I started using this salve about a month ago. I'm re-ordering now because I've shared it with so many people. I've had a life long issue with insomnia. I used this salve once before bed because the description said it had a calming affect. I fell into a sound sleep. I thought it was a coincidence because items will work for a couple nights and then the affects will wear off and I go back to no sleep. I recently started using Ambien because I was at a point of simply needing rest to get through life. With the use of this salve I rarely use the Ambien anymore. I massage the salve on my temples to calm my mind, neck/shoulder muscles for relaxation, and my heart for peace. The most unexpected for me has been my hands. If I rub it into my hands my whole body shudders into relaxation. I put them up to my face taking deep breaths because I am in love with the smell. And then I sleep! Thank you for what I feel is a healthier way for my body to get much needed sleep!
