• Healing cuts or abrasions
• Reducing pain from arthritis or infection

• Reducing pain and itching from insect stings and bite

To Use: Formulated for every day use, Nature’s Veil works best when applied just after bathing and over night. Only a thin veil is necessary. Reapply as needed for soft, supple skin. Consistency will change with temperature, this does not change its effectiveness. Shake well if separation occurs.

Ingredients: cocoa butter. coconut oil, avocado oil, almond oil, aloe, essential oils, and herbs.
