This blog is filled with lotions, oils, salves, beauty products, personal care products, bath products, cleaning products and just about anything you can make yourself, better and safer for your family. It is my way of making people aware of what is going "on and in" their own bodies, there by becoming healthier. The best thing we can give one another is our loving time. Please remember that with any new essential oil you try, there is a chance of allergies, so test first.

MAGIC PAIN RELEIVER SALVE
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.
