"Amber" is fossilized tree resin in addition to being a golden, orange colour. For thousands of years, cultures all across the world have been using tree resins for a variety of purposes: protecting chronic wounds and ulcers from infection and increasing their healing rate - in some cases more effectively that pharmaceuticals (check out this Finnish article and this link to the NIH); chewing gum (check out our Wild Spruce Gum); glue, tar and sealant, (Genesis 6:14); and as fire starter, torches and incense. 


Northern Amber Salve smells like a wild forest of spruce trees. Due to the spruce pitch, honey and bee propolis, this salve is naturally anti-fungal, antibiotic, antimicrobial, and disinfectant. It fights infection, promotes healing and protection and increases circulation. It also has been used for relieving areas such as sore muscles, arthritis, gout and sprains, and First Nations People have used it to effectively relieve congestion.


We use Northern Amber Salve as a joint and muscle rub; we apply it to cuts, scratches, rashes and wounds to protect against infection and to promote quicker healing; and we use it as a deodorant and exfoliator. Northern Amber Salve is utilized in our home, in our barn yard and in our wilderness adventures.


This salve is an original recipe, crafted by Amberlin in small batches on the Biegel family farm using traditional methods.  All ingredients we have either grown, crafted or wild harvested: Wild Spruce Pitch twice infused in our own Grass-fed Beef Tallow (we double infused to ensure a higher percentage of spruce pitch in the final product); our own Beeswax, Raw Honey, and Bee Propolis Tincture. 



AVOID CONTACT WITH EYES. Best to apply a small amount of salve to the skin or injury and wait for a few hours to ensure there's no allergic reaction. It's normal for the salve to sting a bit when applied to open cuts/scrapes/wounds. Salve may contain traces of natural debris/residue/sediment. In case of skin reaction or irritation discontinue use.

  • Grass-fed Beef Tallow: rendered from our own beef

    Beef Tallow has been used traditionally for skin and body care, baking, cooking, and candle making.  Grass-fed Tallow is ultra rich in the same kinds of lipids that are found naturally in youthful, healthy looking skin. Grass-fed tallow also contains fat-soluble Vitamins A, D, E & K and Vitamin B12. It is perfectly balanced by nature, with no further improvement or enrichment needed. These properties, including Triglycerides, which allow for the easy absorption of nutrients, as well as antioxidants, provide the key elements we need to maintain healthy, sturdy, cell integrity and tone. The fatty acids in pure grass-fed tallow are similar in molecular structure and composition to those found in the protective outer layer of human skin and in naturally produced skin oils (sebum). This makes grass-fed tallow highly skin compatible, allowing it to absorb easily into the skin to improve the protective barrier function of the skin, prevent moisture loss and regenerate the appearance of healthy, youthful looking skin.


    Spruce Pitch: Hand harvested from wild spruce trees

    Spruce pitch is what the tree produces in order to heal its wounds, cuts, gashes, infections, viruses and tree diseases. In the same way, spruce pitch has been used for hundreds of years to heal the same types of ailments in people. Spruce pitch is well known for fighting infection – even chronic infection. It can be used to help heal wounds, cuts, sores, bruises, cold sores, ulcers, acne, boils, sprains, strains, scabs, burns, diaper rash, bug bites and fungal conditions. It also helps relieve pain, swelling, inflammation (including joint and muscle inflammation) and it strengthens the immune system. It relieves skin ailments by helping to moisturize and regenerate the skin and promote blood flow. It aids in removing toxins from the body, helps to relax muscles and relieves respiratory problems. In addition to all that, it is anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, analgesic, antimicrobial, antiseptic, disinfectant, and antimicrobial! You can also use it in the treatment of horse & cattle hoof cracks & fungal problems. One First Nations lady said that she took 1 Tbsp. of ground spruce resin 2 times a day and was healed of her cancer!


    Honey: harvested from our family beehives 

    Not only is honey a natural, healthy and delicious sweetener, it is nourishing and has powerful healing properties! It reduces inflammation, treats burns, ulcers, acne, eczema, rashes, abrasions, and wounds. It also moisturizes, exfoliates and fights infection. It contains antioxidants and protects the body from free radicals. The capacity to produce hydrogen peroxide is a key reason for honey's antibacterial and antifungal activity, making it ideal for treating infected wounds and other bacterial disorders and killing harmful bacteria without damaging body tissue.


    Beeswax: harvested from our family beehives.

    Beeswax is incredibly nourishing for the skin! It helps to nourish and moisturize rough, chapped, dry skin; and due to its strong antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and high vitamin A content (which helps in the production of collagen), it can assist in healing acne, scars, stretch marks, and fungal skin infections.


    Propolis: harvested from our family beehives and made into a concentrated tincture.

    Propolis is known as the immune system of the beehive. The bees gather resin from trees and leaves, mix it with their saliva, honey, pollen, wax and bee bread and use it to seal and insulate the hive. It’s a sticky glue-like substance that is teeming with goodness! Propolis is anti-fungal, anti-septic, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, and contains anti-histamine and anti-biotic properties. It helps to heal sore throats, canker sores, tooth aches, burns, cuts, cold sores, scars, bruises, wounds, rashes, blisters, boils, dry skin, ulcers, warts, bug bites and other skin ailments great or small. It fights infection, strengthens the immune system, and promotes skin renewal. It’s also a great source of bioflavonoids, amino acids and antioxidants. Absolutely incredible!
