Herbal healing salve

This salve is designed to speed wound healing and prevent infection.
Several European studies have shown that calendula ointments can accelerate wound healing.

1 ounce dried chickweed
1/4 ounce dried echinacea, goldenseal (cultivated), usnea, or propolis, finely cut
4 ounces olive oil
1/4 ounce beeswax, grated
4 drops tincture of gum benzoin (available in drugstores)
10 drops essential oil such as lavender, rosemary, or peppermint
2 vitamin E capsules

Place the herbs and oil into a slow cooker set on “low” and heat overnight. Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool. Put on rubber gloves and strain the oil through a mesh strainer or a clean muslin cloth, squeezing the herbs tightly. Discard the herbs and return the oil to the cooker, stir in the beeswax, and heat until the wax is melted. Now turn off the heat, stir in the essential oil and intact vitamin E capsules, and pour the salve into clean, dry containers. When the salve reaches room temperature, rub a little on your skin. If it’s too soft, reheat it and add a little more beeswax; if it’s too hard, reheat it and add a little more oil.
Stored in the refrigerator, the salve will keep a year; at room temperature, it will keep several months.
Almond honey hand salve
Keep a jar of this ready to use after your hands have had rough treatment, such as a day's gardening or cleaning. Rub it in well or use larger amounts and then put cotton gloves on for a while or overnight. You can feel its benefits straight away. The benzoin tincture acts as a perservative and you can add a few drops of a scented essential oil to perfume the lotion if you wish. Rose geranium or lavender would be ideal.

2 handfuls of rolled oats
2oz almonds, ground very fine
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon pure clear honey
2 tablespoons sweet almond oil
8 drops tincture of benzoin

Beat all the ingredients together very thoroughly. Using a food
processor is easiest, but by hand is fine though the result will be
coarser. Pot into small jars and keep covered.
