Balms & Salves For Healing

Gardener's salve recipe, make your own healing salve. It's great for chapped hands or dry knuckles. Massage into fingernails to help prevent splitting. Beeswax pearls, cocoa butter, essential oils all make this a wonderful salve.
Ingredients: Makes about 8oz, or 2 4 oz tins
4 oz light or virgin olive oil (feel free to use infused aswell)
1 1/2 oz beeswax pearls
1 1/2 oz cocoa butter
1 1/2 oz lavender essential oil
Also Needed:
a small pan, glass mesuring cup, metal tins, stirs & labels.
Directions: In a small pan, melt cocoa butter over low heat, then add the beeswax until melted. Now, Add the olive oil, remove from heat & transfer into the glass measuring cup. Add your essential oil, stir, and pour into metal tins. If the mixture starts to harden in the glass measuring cup, reheat over low heat, stir & pour quickly.

Place 1 ounce of the buds in 1 pint of hot olive oil and allow to simmer, covered, 3 hours. Strain and add 1-1/2 oz of beeswax and 1/2 tsp. tincture of benzoin to the strained mixture. Test for consistency and place in sterile jar. This is a good salve to use on burns, scratches, swelling injuries. Also good for any skin eruptions. The signature of balm of Gilead is the resin exudation covering the buds. It contains salicin, which is also found in aspirin. It has some of the same pain-killing and anti-inflammatory properties as aspirin. -Author Unknown

Mix together 1 oz of chickweed (reduces inflammation and aids in healing), 1 oz of wormwood (a great pain reliever), and 1 ounce of yarrow (an anti-bacterial agent that also helps relieve pain). The yarrow plant contains achillein and achilleic acid. These substances reduce the clotting time of blood, so they help stop any bleeding. Yarrow also has pain-killing and anti-inflammatory properties that are similar to aspirin. Add the mixture of herbs to 2 pints of olive oil and simmer 3 hours. Strain and add 3 ounces of beeswax and 1 teaspoon of tincture of benzoin. Test for consistency before pouring into wide mouth containers. -Author Unknown

10ml unscented body lotion 2 drops lemon<br/>1 drop geranium, 1 drop sandalwood, 20 drops of pre-diluted rose oil. Blend well and massage into your hands. Now, if you shake somebody's hand they'll do anything for you. -Author Unknown

Ingredients: 4-6 Bay Laurel leaves, Olive oil, 1 tablespoon powdered Cayenne pepper, Beeswax.
Step 1: Place the bay leaves in a clear bottle. Cover them with enough olive oil so that they are submerged and then some. Set out in the sun for seven days. Step 2: Strain the oil mixture through cheese cloth and add the Cayenne pepper. Shake well to disolve. Warm your beeswax and add it to the oil mixture. Mix well. The wax is used to make the mixture more of a solid, so you can add as little or as much wax as you like. The more wax, the harder the cooled salve. To soften, simply heat and add more oil. Store in a cool place.
