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!

    sunflower, almond, or coconut oil

    fresh sage

How to Make green salve

Step-by-Step

  1. Chop 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.
  2. Heat on low for two hours.
  3. Cool, then strain through several layers of cheesecloth until you've removed most of the plant bits.
  4. Put it back in double boiler or crock pot, and add the beeswax and honey.
    Melt together.
  5. Cool again.
    Before it becomes solid, pour into a clean jar.
