Made With Love: Heavenly Healing Salve

 
Can a pricey jar of chemicals match the power of Mother Nature and your love? I think not!

Instead of expensive over-the-counter products, we use hydrogen peroxide, witch hazel, calamine lotion, aloe vera gel, and both arnica cream and calendula cream.  We are ready for (almost) anything! Creams and ointments are often expensive to buy but can be made easily at home.  Here is an easy recipe to make your own curative cream.
 
 
Make Your Own Topical Salve:
 
            stainless steel saucepan, bowl, whisk, and thermometer
            small clean jars or cans to store your ointment in
            15 grams (1 tablespoon) beeswax
80 milliliters (5 tablespoons) organic almond carrier oil  
             add 20 drops of arnica tincture to make an arnica cream;
15 drops of rosemary tincture and 14 drops of lavender oil to make cream
 
Melt the beeswax and vegetable oil in a double boiler (or in a bowl over a saucepan).  When the beeswax is fully melted, remove the bowl or pan from the heat.  Whisk the ointment until it is cooled to around 100◦ F, then stir in the tincture you are using. Once you have the hang of it, you can experiement and make blends that smell like heaven!
 
Label and store in clean, sealable lidded jars or cans.  These homemade creams will last longest if you keep them refrigerated
