The Super Salve Company was created by Denise Tracy Cowan in 1990 after her late husband, Randy Fabres (a Grand Canyon river guide), asked her to formulate a salve that would prevent and heal foot fungus, which debilitated a large portion of the crew and passengers on extended Grand Canyon river trips. The results were amazing and the acceptance was universal. Denise could not keep this incredible salve in stock.
Hence, The Super Salve Company was born!
Over the years, Denise has received thousands of letters from fans, praising the properties and purity of her products. She only uses responsible sources of organically farmed herbs, oils, essential oils, butters and waxes. The Super Salve Company’s goal is to produce the highest quality products with the finest ingredients at a reasonable price, using only recyclable, earth-friendly packaging.
The Super Salve Company products are manufactured, packaged, and shipped directly from her factory (located near the ghost town of Mogollon, New Mexico) enabling the highest degree of quality control and quick response to orders from her customers.
When my package arrived from the Super Salve Co., I was so excited, I tore right into it! I was sore and had a headache from cleaning and yard work the previous days, and was interested to see how well they worked when I needed it most. I was sent The Super Pack. It contains one of each of their salves in a large, fancy tin!
Salves include: Calendula Salve, Sun Salve, Arnica Salve, and the infamous Super Salve. All of which I was delighted to try!
Arnica cordifolia ~ common name “Leopard’s Bane." This salve works fast and effectively on muscle aches, joints and tension. It also helps heal sprains, bruising and swelling. Rubbed on temples and back of neck for headaches, this salve will stimulate circulation and healing.

My Experience: This was the first of the salves I tried. I rubbed it on my shoulders, wrists, temples, and the nape of my neck. I love the way it creates a pleasant, warming sensation followed by a gentle cooling tingle. It helped me finish my daily tasks without being bothered by those annoying aches and pains I was feeling prior to the salve. I applied it once again before bed, and was able to rest comfortably. It is now something I put on my temples before yoga and meditation to help soothe my mind and get rid of those annoying headaches.

It contains so many awesome ingredients that soften the skin while soothing burns or itchy skin. I have sensitive skin and always worry about what I put on it, especially my face. This salve leaves me worry free! I now put it on before going outside as well as after showering to prevent my skin from drying out and getting flaky.
