I love this salve.  This is the second time I've made it as we've went through my whole first batch in a year.  My kids now ask for salve instead of bandaids.  It's become the new 'boo boo kiss' healer.  The recipe comes from Frugally Sustainable: https://frugallysustainable.com/building-your-medicine-chest-herbal-miracle-salve-recipe/  

-1 1/4 cup organic olive oil
-0.3 ounces dried calendula flowers
-0.3 ounces dried plantain
-0.2 ounces dried St. Johns wort
-0.2 ounces dried Oregon grape root
-1-2 ounces beeswax

Essential Oils, Optional

It's basically neosporin, but works great a lotion or aloe or itch stopper, lots of stuff.  Love it.

Started with a herbal infusion in olive oil, and when that was infused added beeswax.

Bunch of different essential oils, all for different purposes. And into jars.

All set up and ready to use!  I like keeping little bottles in my purse for on the go.

Wow, I want to put it on my skin like right now =)
I was thinking about purchase a natural balm from a well-known company (since it was just different waxes melted together and I was feeling lazy ^^), but this version is really great for my psoriasis and my urticaria. I hope I'll find those herbs in my coutry !

Never ignore a coincidence. Unless you're busy, in which case always ignore a coincidence.
