This green salve is something we have been using since we moved to these mountains and were introduced to it almost 4 years ago. The children love it, as do I, and we use it for any and all skin ailments. Bites, rashes, stings,
bruises, scrapes and more.
It works wonderfully soothing and is so easy to make.
Inspired by A handmade life, I added dried calendula flowers this time.
Otherwise we added the same herbs as we added to our poison ivy spray.
Lots of Comfrey, plantain and some jewel weed, we also added some dandelion leaves.
chopped it all up, added the dried calendula flowers and poured a bottle of Grape seed oil over it.
Left it in the oven for the whole day on the lowest temperature.
Then left it to strain over night
melted some wax
and added the melted wax to the warmed up oil, if the oil isn't warm the wax will separate when added,
and here is lovely green goodness, ready for all those summer itches, scratches and bruises.
