How to use salve in a sentence?

  1. Lisa Haisha:

    Laughter is a salve. It’s the best medicine around. Poet Pablo Neruda called it “the language of the soul.” I know this to be a universal truth because I’ve seen this play out in every culture around the world. People find respite and release in laughter.

  2. Unknown:

    Prayer is .... the salve on the wounds of our spirit that we order from God in our moments with Him.

  3. Attorney Clark Brewster:

    I think that will shed the light most prominently on the issue here for us, the whole basis for listing betamethasone is because it’s injected into a joint and they want you not to inject the joints too close to the race, so the whole substantive basis is out the window if it’s a salve, and it can be proven scientifically and empirically to be the salve.

  4. Jonathan Miller:

    Over the past few years, we've passed the affordability threshold, with the loss of the ability to comfortably use all the amenities that characterize living in a city -- restaurants, retail, bars, all the cultural events that were at your beck and call as a resident of Manhattan -- people are questioning it. Those were the salve on affordability.

  5. James Kennedy:

    They’ve been using cannabis in poultice and salves for years, my aunt’s grandmother had a marijuana salve they used 60 years ago in Mexico. My goal wasn’t just to put cannabis in a salve, but to create a modern product.
