Life on the Homestead always leads to scratches, scrapes, bruises and bites. This is our favorite “go-to” salve whenever humans or animals need a little help healing. While we don’t claim that it cures everything, we find that it provides anti-itch, anti-inflammatory properties, and we enjoy the benefits of natural healing!
5 tsp. Beeswax Pastilles or Beads
1) Make an infusion with the olive oil and dried herbs.
There are a couple of ways to do this.
I use a small crockpot (that I picked up at a thrift store for a couple of dollars) and “cook” the leaves and herbs for about 3 hours.
You can also mix the herbs and oil and let it sit on the counter in a covered jar for 2-3 weeks.
