How to make your own Salve from Plants

These solid preparations are good for travel. They can soothe skin irritations, bug bites and minor bumps and bruises. In order to make salve you need access to beeswax.

Take your infused oil and grate 1/4 ounce of beeswax for every 1/2 cup of infused oil. In a heavy stainless steel pan(aluminum of cast iron will degrade the properties of salve) warm the oil over low heat, add the beeswax and  stir util it melts. Remove from heat allow to cool slightly and pour into jars while it is still warm. Once the mixture cools completely, close the lid tightly.

Until later, your friend Bill
