Healing Salve

Healing Salve with Eucalyptus and Chamomile

Yield 9 ounces

Step 1: Make the Herbal Infusion

To make the herbal infusion:

  1. Combine 2 ounces of eucalyptus leaves and 2 ounces of chamomile flowers in a large mason jar. Cover completely with olive oil and tightly seal. (Find organic eucalyptus leaf here and organic chamomile flowers here.)
  2. Place the mason jar in a pot of simmering water.
  3. Simmer on low heat for several hours.
  4. Strain and reserve the infused oil.

(As I mentioned above, I tried a cold infusion of eucalyptus leaves over the course of several months, but I think the method above works just as well.)

I love to use this salve on cuts, scrapes, scratches, or any other area that needs some TLC. It’s wonderfully soothing. Definitely a great addition to my summer first aid kit!
