Son of Apollo Healing Salve

Son of Apollo Healing Salve


Sold out — a new batch is available as part of Asclepius IV

A mélange of Solar herbs and sundry essential oils famed for their healing properties, in a blend of organic olive oil and fair-trade, incorruptible jojoba.

Calendula, St. John’s wort, goldenseal, yellowdock root, comfrey root, and balm of gilead, suffumigated during the Son of Apollo election. Immersed in our 50/50 oil + liquid wax and placed upon the Asclepius altar before being moved to the front porch to greet the rays of Sol’s rising on his Father’s day.

Left to incubate and shaken on Sundays in the hour of Sol for many months, before being mixed with organic beeswax and essential oils of frankincense, wintergreen, and eucalyptus, and poured in accord with the Sun’s timing as Humanity’s Own Star rejoiced in rulership. Topped with 24k gold leaf.

“My muscles feel like… gently melting butter”, Austin remarked following initial application.

Apply and spend 1-3 minutes rubbing into areas in need of relaxation. Great on the feet and shoulders as a way to de-stress after a long day. Can also be used to soothe and protect the skin.

Arrives in a 2 oz metal tin for $63

Note: Do not apply to cuts or open wounds! For comparison, peruse testimonials from our first Exalted Venus salve.

This salve has brought me through a number of painful moments - after I broke my knee this summer, and also those random joint pains that occur. The scent is highly medicinal, and just smelling it my body knows it’s going to feel better soon. It’s smooth and easy to rub in, and a little goes a long way. Highly recommend !!

Can Help Reduce the Chance of Scarring for Minor Wounds For Me

I can only speak from my experience, but I've found this salve will help reduce the chance of scarring for minor wounds like razor cuts or accidental scrapes. It can also be soothing to apply this during the healing process of minor skin inconveniences and irritations like sunburns. For example, I fell down on my right knee and scraped it due to a guy robbing me of my cell phone on a subway train in September of this year. I was worried I could have minor residual issues because my knee ached occasionally for over a week after the surprise situation. However, this salve helped my knee heal to my satisfaction in a week and a half with occasional application of the product. I healed with no noticeable scar where the scrape was and no residual pains in the knee as well.

This salve is well-worth the price for me. I'm diabetic and heal slowly at times, so I'm grateful to have this salve in my arsenal in case of life's unexpected cuts and muscle pains.

A must-have for your medicine cabinet.

The Divine Physician's Healing Salve has been such a helpful and comforting ally for me while tending to a painful and complex foot injury. I got SUPER lucky with the prognosis which turned out bafflingly better than my doctor originally estimated. Grateful for this salve and hope to never be without it!

Very healing

I use this healing salve after working out. Amazing relief from aches and pains.

Great relief

I was fortunate enough to be able to get my hands on some of this, and it hits a little differently from the Asclepius IV salve. You can definitely get the solar tones from this one. It's great to treat aching muscles, inflammation, and general your body feeling poorly.

The softest thing ever

This Salve truly feels like melted butter and smells heavenly, on top of assuaging pain very efficiently. Love it!

Exceeded expectations

I was concerned this salve might be too strong when I read the description and saw the ingredients included wintergreen oil! Luckily this is very subtle and the salve feels very neutral—more so than other salves I’ve tried from S+. I absolutely love it and reach for it often since making the purchase.


This is the first salve I've bought in the larger size and I'm glad I did! I have chronic shoulder/neck and jaw pain and use this almost every night for self-massage.


The Divine Physician’s Healing Salve used with the magnesium spray has been very healing for my lower back. I have really terrible low back issues that can be really debilitating. I was using the spray by itself but when I use it with The Divine Physician’s Healing Salve I tend to wake up feeling normal and rested.


My favorite salve. So relaxing and delicious. I’ve gone through a tin in almost a months time.


  1. I applied the salve on my feet before a long trail run, in the hopes I would be spared any injury. Not only did I have an accident-free run, but I also finished without any blisters – a first for me, as I usually get a few after every long trail run I take part in.
    Praise to Asclepius! And praise to Sphere + Sundry for this truly incredible offering!

  2. went hiking on an overcast day and derped on applying sunscreen, resulting in fried neon red skin on my shoulders and arms. applied some other first aid ointments everywhere and on a whim, tested using this on one shoulder. the difference the next morning was profound. the arm that received Asclepius’ energy via S+salve (and this arm was hit/cooked harder by the sun) was now looking tan and healthy, felt great. the patch right next to it and the whole other arm–where I’d only applied other ointments–was still bright red, tender and hot to the touch. the next day and night I repeated the regimen including this salve (everywhere this time) and am still in awe of how much this salve quickened recovery.

    so much love for every Asclepius series offering that I’ve used. thank you always, Kaitlin, for making these!

  3. This is so helpful with the arthritis in my knuckles. Gently work it in before keyboard marathons, knitting, and other such. It is really is miraculous.

  4. Amazing to put on your feet before bed. Very relaxing and provides an alleviating draining out or unloading type of sensation, if that resonates with anyone. I *finally* have help with some difficult to describe sleep disturbances that I have been struggling with for months. Thank you, Kaitlin and team, these offerings are so needed and appreciated.

  5. This is the perfect ‘soothe’ that’s required on any particular place where I need support.
    I have no idea why it took me so long after the launch to buy it….like what good reason for not buying it!!!….Once I tried it the answer was none!
    Another gift to this world of magic materia by the gorgeous Kaitlin.

  6. I have already bought this twice & while im not sure it turns my muscles into butter, it does help with whatever I put it on. I have a torn meniscus in my knee & I apply it there when it hurts, and also sometimes my stomach when im not feeling well & it works equally well to quickly take away the pain & help heal. also, I had a major surgery in January that left me mentally & physically busted & once safe, I began applying this to my scars daily & around my chest area for the healing combined with the warm, uplifting, clearing solar kind of boost, it was a beloved part of my every day morning routine for awhile there. I think having the salve in addition to the oils with same or similar properties helps because it caused me to stop & take time to give love to my body by rubbing it in, which is part of the healing. ive also applied it to a few friends who were in pain & they said it helped too. Can’t speak strongly enough in favor <3

  7. Waow, this salve is An Experience. I’m in awe!
    First of all, the scent is heavenly. I don’t even know how to describe it… honeyed and green? Earthy and comforting. I wasn’t expecting to love it so much, honestly!
    The texture is truly unlike anything I’ve ever tried before when it comes to salves, creams, onguents. It’s SO soft, extremely pleasant to apply. Again, blew my mind away, beyond any expectations I might have had.
    I struggle with chronic pain and used it for the first time on a very sore day. Austin is right, “melting butter” really nails it! I fell asleep without the need for a hot water bottle (highly unsual for a high pain day!), woke up feeling rested and serene.
    Besides the incredibly pleasant sensations, the overall feel of this salve is so, so smooth. The synchronicities that happened around my first application has such a gentle feel. I felt seen and cared for.
    Oh and the sleeping side-effect is no joke, you can probably expect to be yawning soon after using it!
    Overall, incredible, definitely would recommend.

  8. This beautiful + potent balm arrived just at the end of a stressful period at work and the start of a turn-of-the-season cold, so I used it as an ointment on blocked up painful ENT areas. The pain disappeared almost immediately and the congestion melted away before I could even make my usual batch of cold-clearing sage tea!

  9. After tearing a ligament, I was stuck in bed that night and couldn’t even roll over, much less get up. The slightest move made me wince in pain. I decided to layer different Asclepius materia, starting with the salve. That helped me enough to get me into the tub, where I soaked in the bath salts two days in a row. Then, in between, I used the Asc II oil. By the 3rd morning, I could walk as if I’d never been injured. When my mother asked after me, I told her this remarkable story, then sent her the salve, as she has fibromyalgia and struggles to relax and fall asleep because of it. I spoke with her this week, and she asked me to order her another tin, as she’s been applying it every night and not only is she in much less discomfort, she’s also sleeping sounder than she’s had in years.

  10. This salve is everything I need when my cramps come, it’s so soothing and effective. I always apply it after long days of work and when my muscles are sore and it helps me relax and soothes my senses.

  11. This is probably the item in the series that has given me the most IMMEDIATE results. Time and again, I have used this when my husband or I have sore muscles that won’t go away on their own. I rub it in before bed and the next morning, they are completely healed without an ounce of pain. It’s truly amazing. I’m so happy I purchased two of these because I don’t know what I will do when they run out!

  12. All praises for this healing modality which has become a staple in our home. We use it for everything, but especially diabetic neuropathy and gout.

  13. I absolutely love this stuff. I have frequent lower back pain and often massage a bit into the muscles of my lower back before bed. It brings instant relief which lasts into the next day.

  14. So glad to have another salve as I enjoyed my Venus salve offering too quickly and ran out. This, coming from a completely different election, has its own character/personality. It is a little softer/more supple (Austin’s quote of soft/butter nails it) and has an herbaceous scent to it. I’ve used it on achy joints and sore muscles. It doesn’t have that hedonistic decadent feel of the Venus salve (personality-wise) but it does soothe and address any physical woes and did take the edge off of a surly mood once too!

  15. I bought this as a preventative — it seemed like it would be good for burns and would be a great addition to the first aid kit. I never expected to find a use for it so soon and be so pleased with it. Just to try it out, I used it on a couple spots – one on each arm. It’s been a decade but I’ve gotten these scratchy risen things. The first ones went away after five years! And before they were all the way gone, two new ones came up no far from the original spot. The doctor seemed to think they’re normal with age but they’re annoying because they’re itchy. The Son of Apollo salve makes them not itchy and they are actually starting to go down, possibly at least in part because I’m finally able to keep my hands off them, but the salve feels so good when it’s rubbed in, I do think they’re also healing from the inside.

  16. Upon opening the tin I smelled herby funk but in a good way. This is so wonderful to massage on my lower abdomen whenever I get menstrual cramps. I can’t take painkillers because I am allergic to them, and my other options are a hot compress or menthol patches which do not always work. I get almost immediate relief from this salve and is super moisturizing to boot! Kudos to you, Kaitlin & Co. and praise be to Asclepius, son of Apollo! My uterus can’t thank you all enough

  17. I took a foot bath with the tincture and finished it up by putting the salve on my feet and putting socks on for a few hours. (I have thick scar tissue on my feet that has required multiple surgeries and a lot of Cortisone shots and only acupuncture has prevented another surgery.) The next day I could move one of my feet much more than before! A couple of days later I wore the same pair of socks again and this morning I feel some kind of sensation in the other, much more thickly scared, foot. The nerves have been removed and I’m feeling something! I’m using this again tonight! This might seem pricey but how much would a doctor appt. and a shot cost? If I wear the wrong type of shoe or boot for a few days, off to the doctor for another steroid shot in a few months. Keep making this stuff!
