Submitted By:

Summary:

I created this salve after researching which herbs help minor skin problems - rashes, scrapes, small cuts, bruises, and very dry skin..... one friend even used it as a lip balm for her very chapped lips and had wonderful results.

Ingredients:

*2 c. olive oil
*1/4 c. dried comfrey leaves
*1/4 c. dried calendula petals
*1/8 c. dried lavender buds
*1 oz. beeswax
*20 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
*20 drops Lavender Essential Oil

Instructions:

Place dried herbs into a crock pot. Pour olive oil over them. Turn crock pot on low and let set for four to six hours. Strain infused oil. Discard herbs. Place infused oil into a 1 qt. saucepan and turn on low. Add the beeswax; stir until beeswax melts. Remove from heat and add essential oils. Pour into 1 oz. jars. Let cool and then seal.
*Makes approximately 14, 1 oz. jars. *Recipe may be halved, doubled, etc.
