Andrea wanted to create a balm that could be used to treat a wide range of skin problems. So she created a blend of plants and oils with skin-healing properties that can be used to treat:
- Cuts, bruises & scrapes
- + 10 other conditions!
It’s a nice tutorial. She explains how to create an infusion or extract using organic olive oil and dried herbs and plants. She shares 3 methods: 1 way to infuse the oil and 2 ways to make an herbal extract.
One of her goals was to incorporate essential oils that had broad spectrum antiseptic properties. As a result, she included 9 essential oils, which is a lot. If you don’t have all of the essential oils, you can use what you have on hand.
She also includes a salve-making video tutorial. Finally, if you don’t have the time to make this salve, Andrea has it for sale in her Etsy shop.
