Healing salve ...

This beautiful salve, inspired by the LaerningHerbs Medicine Kit purchased many years ago, is a staple in the first aid kit. When my grandchildren were young they called it boo-boo cream. It is a simple recipe of olive oil, beeswax and lavender essential oil.

Recently a dear friend skinned both shins severely. Her doctor suggested cocoa butter once the open wounds had closed to help with the scabs. She had bought a jar labeled cocoa butter at the drug store. The ingredients listed mineral oil and fragrance among other items. Not what I would have chosen! As soon as I returned home I went to work creating a salve with organic, unrefined cocoa butter, olive oil, beeswax, vitamin E and lavender essential oil for her legs. As far as I am concerned, a much better ointment for the skin.

These small containers make wonderful gifts and items for your organization's holiday sale. You can be assured they will be used and requested next year! (Don't let anyone know how easy it is :) )

PS: The Medicine Kit is a great gift too!

If you do not have a local supplier you can buy the beeswax, cocoa butter and the essential oil from Mountain Rose Herbs
