How to Make Comfrey Salve

How to Make Comfrey Salve:

YIELDS: 8 ounces

1⁄4 cup beeswax

1⁄2 cup Fresh Comfrey Oil

1⁄4 cup Green Tea–Infused Oil

2 vitamin E capsules

12 drops chamomile essential oil

* What you will need: double boiler, measuring cups, rubber spatula, jars with lids to hold 8 ounces of balm

1. To Make: Start the double boiler on medium heat. Once it reaches a boil reduce heat to simmer. Place the beeswax in the top of the double boiler and cover. Simmer until melted, stirring occasionally. To preserve the beneficial nutrients, do not overheat. Remove from heat, take the top pan off the double boiler, and cool 5-10 minutes. Add the Fresh Comfrey Oil and Green Tea–Infused Oil to the melted beeswax and stir. Pierce the vitamin E capsules and squeeze the liquid out into the melted oil, discarding the gel caps. Add the essential oil and stir well, scraping any of the hardened cooled mixture off the sides and back into the melted oils. If the mixture hardens too much before you can pour it, gently melt it again in the double boiler. Pour into your jars and let stand undisturbed for 4 hours or overnight before use.

2. To Store: Label and store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight. Use within a year.

3. To Use: Simply remove a small amount from the jar and melt between your fingertips, then spread it into your cuticles and the cracks in your hands, elbows, and feet. Take advantage of the natural healing properties and apply to bruises, superficial burns, diaper rash, blisters, cuts, and more. Do not use on open wounds. Reapply often for best results.
