Tattoo Healing Balm.....continued.....

Ok....I present to everyone my first of the newest line of products - KISS MY TATTOO healing balm :-) I am very, very nervous and anxious about how this is going to develop...but hey...without risk there is nothing!!!

As I said, my husband is a tattoo freak! His first tattoo didnt go that well and I think thats because he was using Triple Ointment on it to heal. This is the deal with the commercial ointments - they contain petroleum and lanolin and BOTH clog the pores and dont let the skin to take a breath! Why do this to your brand new tattoo after hours on that chair and taking the pain in? Why not use something natural, light and moisturizing that is going to help you keep those vibrant colors that your artist drew on you?

Here is down low on this balm:

I used Unrefined Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Hemp Seed Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Coconut Oil, Carrot Seed Essential Oil, Rose Absolute Morroc Essential Oil, Calendula Herbal Oil and a little Beeswax.

The butters help to prevent the itching and help with the scuffing.

Hemp Seed Oil has the perfect balance of Omega Acids - PERFECT for the people that are allergic to any fish oil, this is a way to get the necessary nutrients for the skin.

Carrot Seed has the necessary vitamins to help for returning the skin to a healthy state.

Grapeseed Oil is naturally full of Vitamin E

Rose Absolute preserves the clarity and boldness of your tattoos and brightens colors.

Calendula is very gentle and perfect for soothing and healing.

Coconut Oil is awesome for the dry skin and it soaks in very quick.

Beeswax on its own is very pharmaceutical.

Mango butter is rich in vitamin A, E and beta carotene

Unrefined Shea butter will speed healing while reducing or eliminating pain and itch associated with the healing process after receiving a tattoo. Using Shea butter will also help reduce scaring.

Treat the tattoo as a huge wound, because thats what it is - you really should to avoid hot tubs, swimming pools and soaking in bathubs of water during the healing period. Before the surface heals, the skin is susceptible to infection and public pools and water are easy sources of bacteria. Also, the soaking can cause the scab to come off too soon, which can also hurt your new tattoo.

Wash your tattoo gently with unscented and natural soap, dont let it sit under the hot shower for too long, dont pick at the scabs....place a thin layer of the balm and massage it well in the skin

I wish I had this 2 years ago when I got my first tattoo. The healing process was far worse than the actually inking process. Bless you for making this! Maybe it's time for another tattoo...

I have two tats, and the one around my ankle has a bit of a scar on it where I dropped a heavy box and it came down and hit it while it was in the healing stage. It's not too noticeable though. I've been playing with the idea of getting another one or two but I go back and forth...This balm looks like another reason to do it though, heheh!
