How to Make Healing herbal salve made in a crockette

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat herbs in olive oil over low heat for about 5 hours. Do not let the oil boil or bubble.

    A Crock-Pot or the lowest temperature setting on a range should be suitable for heating this mixture. (If the lowest setting is too hot, turn off the heat once it has warmed the oil...it should keep warm for at least and hour....then repeat the process twice.)

    After cooking, strain out the herbs while oil is still warm.
  2. Place 1 1/4 cups of the herb oil in a pan, add beeswax and heat just enough to melt the wax.

    Add essential oil and stir. Finally, pour the salve into wide mouthed jars. Store at room temperature. Use for minor scrapes and cuts, to protect and promote healing.

    makes 4 1/2 cup jelly jars of salve. I like the very short ones. it makes a great salve jar.
  3. Comfrey uses

    You can also apply comfrey topically to help treat broken bones, according to the University of Michigan Health System. Comfrey creams and ointments may also be helpful in healing pulled muscles and ligaments.

    Topical applications of comfrey can help to encourage new skin growth and faster healing of bruises.

    Comfrey may also be helpful in treating varicose veins
  4. Marigold was used to treat wounds and to prevent wounds from becoming infected with toxins and bacteria

    Marigold is used to treat eczema, scars, cracked skin, rashes, inflammations and viral infections.

    The petals of Marigold are used to make an eyewash; Marigold is also used in both homeopathic and conventional medicine as a healing ointment for cuts and grazes. Marigold has anti-septic, stimulant and anti-fungal properties.

    Calendula has been effective in treating juvenile acne and dry phthiriasis
