Introducing the Irish salve that solves all ails & has a cult-like following with the sea swimming community

Slánlus soothing salve developed by Margaret Lynch was brewing for some time. By being creative, lured by the gifts of nature onto the path of herbal medicine.  Margaret stepped away from practising as a solicitor to pour energy and passion into her vision for a more sustainable, natural, green vibration and a better life.

The demand for the hand-crafted salves had been growing beyond family and friends so she took a deep breath and started the groundwork to bring the original offering, Slánlus, to the skincare market.  Margaret Lynch is the creator and owner of her very own green offering for those who are in need of it, to experience the power of plants.

For all to know, Slánlus means the healing herb as Gaeilge. Say it, sl-awh-n-lus, say it like your Irish ancestors are listening! Peace & plants.

Slánlus has a unique concentrated formula tried and tested to soothe and calm spots, cold sores, grazes, stings, bites (Mosquito, Bee, Wasp and Jellyfish).
