With two little ones this recipe for Homemade Boo-Boo Salve from Mrs Happy Homemaker is just the perfect thing to have on hand. Give it a try and let me know how you like it.
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup dried comfrey
1/4 cup dried calendula
2oz beeswax (equals out to 2 of the 1oz bars or 4 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons of honey
10 drops lavender essential oil (optional)
jars (I use these)
In a medium pot – mix the coconut oil, olive oil, dried comfrey, & dried calendula. Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes. Strain the herbs from the oil using a cheesecloth or coffee filter. Discard of the herbs.
Wipe any remaining herbs from the pot you used, and add the oil back to the pot. Turn the heat to medium. Stir in the honey until completely combined. Then, add in the beeswax – stirring until completely melted. Mix in the lavender essential oil, if using.
Pour the mixture into your jars. Stir it occasionally while it cools to ensure even settling. Seal once set.”
