Chagrin Valley


The Intention

A cooling, refreshing treat, this nourishing foot balm rejuvenates sore, tired, dry feet. Shea, cocoa, and aloe butters deeply moisturize, as marshmallow root, calendula, elderflower, saint john’s wort, and mullein soothe, help relieve tension, and nurture aching and rough feet. It’s such a great salve for a foot massage to provide some calm and grounding energy at the end of the day.


The Ingredients

Organic sunflower oil, organic virgin coconut oil, organic cocoa butter, organic beeswax, organic calendula, organic plantain, organic mullein, organic elder flowers, organic marshmallow root, organic saint john's wort, organic peppermint essential oil, organic tea tree essential oil, organic rosemary essential oil, organic eucalyptus essential oil, organic menthol crystals
Organic sunflower oil is infused with organic calendula, plantain, mullein, elderberry flowers, marshmallow root, and st. john's wort

The Ritual

Apply directly to feet and heels. For intensive treatment, smooth on feet before bed and cover with clean organic cotton socks – allowing the salve to penetrate overnight.

The Chagrin Valley Story

Founded in 2001 by former nurse and science teacher, Ida Friedman, Chagrin Valley began as a soapmaking hobby that soon blossomed into so much more. As Ida’s career experiences in medicine and science evolved, she became increasingly concerned about how many toxic chemicals were present in skincare products and the adverse effects they had on us, our children, and our planet.

Believing – and living – deeply in environmental stewardship, Chagrin Valley works hard as a family-owned and family-operated business to be vigilant about their impact on the environment. Reusing, recycling, and composting every day are a part of their business ethics, and they are always deeply mindful of how their daily activities affect Mother Earth and her inhabitants. They only use organic ingredients in their creations, sourced from very well-researched local farmers and small businesses that share their commitment to environmental responsibility. All products are crafted in small batches in their Chagrin Valley, Ohio studio, and all packaging is recyclable or compostable.

Another beautiful cornerstone of Chagrin Valley is their support of pollinators like bees and butterflies. Knowing that these wonderful beings sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce, the Chagrin Valley team has created pollinator-habitats at their homes and soap factory by providing food (nectar plants), shelter, water, and larval plants (plants that the butterfly caterpillars like to eat). Each year they are adding more and more native plants to their gardens.
