A medicine chest can be as close as the back yard if you know what to look for. THese grow as weeds un the US. This salve is great for bug bites, bee stings, blisters, scrapes, and burns!

Ingredients

3/4 c
fresh plantain (see photo if you don't know what it looks like)
1 c
sunflower, almond, or coconut oil
1/2 c
fresh sage
3 Tbsp
grated beeswax
1 Tbsp
honey

Step-By-Step

1Chop the herbs (doesn't need to be too fine) and put in a double boiler (or I use one of those small crock pots) with the oil.

2Heat on low for two hours.

3Cool, then strain through several layers of cheesecloth until you've removed most of the plant bits.

4Put it back in double boiler or crock pot, and add the beeswax and honey.
Melt together.

5Cool again.
Before it becomes solid, pour into a clean jar.
