Barnaby Black Spruce Pitch Hand Salve

Made from the pitch of an actual red spruce tree that was felled in the maker's yard during Hurricane Sandy in 2012, this salve bears a sweet, musky smell – shades of a country cabin in the morning. Besides spruce pitch, which has natural wound-healing and antiseptic properties, it contains a mix of organic beeswax to protect the skin, moisturizing olive oil, and palm oil. The latter is one of the few ingredients on Earth that contains high levels of tocotrienols, the most deeply penetrating form of topically applied vitamin E. This is a heavier, waxier salve, best suited to application before heading out on a long day outdoors. [$14 for 2 oz; barnabyblack.com]
