Today is a good day to make a DIY Healing Salve!! I don’t know about your kids, but my kids have boo boos constantly! I’m not even sure how they get half of them (they probably get them while I’m working on this blog!). As usual, Neosporin, an old staple everyone has always used has harmful ingredients. The main thing with Neosporin is that it is petroleum based. I decided to come up with an all organic salve that would replace our worn out and toxic Neosporin. This salve is great for cuts and scrapes, hangnails, burns, bruises and bug bites! It is a great moisturizer for hands, lips and heels. It is great for eczema, break outs and works lightening speed fast for diaper rash. Basically this is the Superman of all salves! It will do everything short of the dishes!
Due to Lavender, Tea Tree, Lemon and Frankincense essential oils it is antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-fungal!! Frankincense acts as a coagulant, helping to stop bleeding from wounds and cuts as well as helps re new and repair skin cells. Coconut Oil is crazy healing and Olive Oil is loaded with vitamins and antioxidants. Beeswax is also moisturizing but mainly it creates a barrier over the skin which heals and protects while the oils seep in to get to work! It’s so easy to make and so great to keep close! It’s mommy’s “magic balm” that heals all boo boos!
DIY Healing Salve
- Fill a pot half way full with water and place a glass bowl with a spout inside. (I call this a double boiler)
- Add your coconut oil, olive oil and beeswax to the glass bowl.
- Once beeswax and oils are completely melted, remove from heat and add essential oils.
- Pour into desired containers.
I find my tins, tubes and jars HERE.
