Skin Balm

Made with oil that had been infused wild rose hips and black spruce (see Infused Oils), this recipe was adapted for the north, one that I sold as part of my skincare business. Lovely and wild in aroma, it was a favorite! As not all of us have access to black spruce, fir needles will suffice!
