Herbal healing salve

Today’s project: homemade salve with around a dozen herbs, olive oil, lanolin and beeswax. Miraculously the final mixture was exactly the right amount for the containers I had… not too much, not too little. Perfect. I take that as a good omen. Herbs used: Comfrey Echinacea Plantain Grindelia Rosemary Yarrow Calendula Chaparral Chickweed Agarita Myrrh All of these herbs were chosen for their skin healing, anti-microbial, or anti-itch/soothing qualities. I did not add essential oils for fragrance as I prefer it to smell “green.” 🙂
