1. Applying salve to someone indicates that one is helping the person in some way.
2. Applying salve to oneself is also an act of healing.
To dream of salve, denotes you will prosper under adverse circumstances and convert enemies into friends.
(see Healing, Medicine, Physician)
A wound that is slowly being healed, within yourself or with others.
If an insect appears in cream, this reveals a temporary holdup in obtaining the restoration you desire (e.g., “a fly in the ointment”).
A means of smoothing out a rough situation, sometimes unusual, that perhaps you haven’t considered before. During the iYliddle Ages, one type of sympathetic cure was putting salve on the implement of harm (like a knife) instead of on the wound itself. Symbolically, this forgave the weapon for the pain inflicted, thereby aiding the cure. So, salve applied on the dream plane may also help bring peace to this matter.
