Salve Making Time
The smell of beeswax and herbal oils finally filled our kitchen on this blustery December day. The Calendula, St. John's Wort, and Plantain have been soaking in the olive oil since August, waiting for the day that I would find some time to melt in some beeswax and pour them into little jars. It really is that simple, but among all the gardening, parenting, cooking, etc., it fell by the wayside. Until today! We now have plenty of skin soothing balm to ease our chapped winter skin and to sell to eager customers. I am still loving hankering down at home for the winter!
