HERBAL HEALING SALVE

HERBAL HEALING SALVE

2 oz dried comfrey leaves, 1 oz dried calendula flowers
2 cups olive oil
1 oz pure beeswax
4 drops each tea tree & lavender essential oils

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 temp 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 an hour – then
repeat the process twice.) After cooking, strain out the herbs while oil is
still warm.  Place 1 1/4 cups of the herb oil in a pan add beeswax and heat just
enough to melt the wax. Add essential oils and stir. Finally, pour the salve
into widemouthed jars. Store at room temp.
