This healing salve became a favorite of mine. I wanted to make something homemade for those little cuts and abrasions that happen all the time. I am kind of a DIY type of person – which you probably know already if you read my blog or watch any of my videos – and I was tired of using neosporin all the time. Don’t get me wrong – it’s perfect and necessary in some situations. But I wanted an all natural healing salve made with essential oils that would take care of the little stuff that I could just rub on. And this is it. In fact, even with a bad cut, I’ll use neosporin early in the healing process and then start using this later. The essential oils in it and the calendula have antibiotic properties, but they all help moisturize and stop scarring. I really like using the calendula and have seen good results from it. But the tea tree oil and the lavender essential oil are great too. So now I usually keep one of these little salves in my purse and another in the refrigerator. And with 6 of us in the house it seems like the salve is always in use.
