Herbal healing salve

This is the family heal-all salve that I use on most everything especially scratches and scrapes but also dry skin.

The beeswax was local as was my lavender and comfrey that come from my garden. I didn’t have enough calendula to use but saved some petals from a previous year.

You can use baby food jars or an empty, but durable container that won’t melt when you pour hot liquid in it.
