DIY Sore-Muscle Salve
Differences in herbal preparations explained. Salves are made by decocting herbs in oils, straining the physical herbs out, then adding beeswax to the herbal oil and letting the mixture cool. Salves are used as lip balms or healing ointments on wounded skin.
I created this salve recipe especially for athlete’s foot and it also works well on nail fungus and ringworm. To make it you will need: -1 1/4 cup good quality olive oil -1 ounce anti-fungal herb mixture (Use any combination of the herbs listed above. I like chaparral leaf, black walnut hulls, garlic, and echinacea root.) -1-2 ounces beeswax -a few drops of essential oils (Choose any combination of tea tree, oregano, thyme, cinnamon, or myrrh.)
