Salve making has been the most enjoyable part of my herbal adventures thus far. I'm not sure why. I just find it super fun!
The first salve I'll be making here is a healing salve. It is to be used on burns, cuts, scrapes, bug bites, bee stings, diaper rashes or any kind of skin irritations. It contains echinacea root, echinacea leaf, plantain, comfrey, calendula, yarrow and rosemary.
We've been using this salve on EVERYTHING with pretty good results! My greatest discovery with this is that it has solved my ring problem. Ever since I was pregnant with Havilah, my wedding ring has caused great irritation to my finger. A rash breaks out and I have to stop wearing my ring for a good week or so before it finally clears up. I tried just putting a little salve on my finger and putting the ring right back on and it healed it right up! Every time it starts to feel irritated, out comes the salve!
Step 1~ Once again, stuff your jar 2/3 of the way full with the herbs of your choice.
