My in-laws have a collection of wood and trash burning stoves around their house and this January my little lamb burned her hand when I wasn't in the room. Because she wasn't wailing and screaming about it my mother-in-law saw no cause for anyone to go get her some burn ointment.
This pin has been on my list for some time now and the burn made me wish I'd already made some of this. The information for this pin came from Crunchy Betty's blog post, "Not Your Mother's Neosporin: Healving Salve for Minor Scrapes and Burns".
At the beginning of the post "Betty" mentions how you could steep your herbs for two to three weeks but that she didn't feel the herbs would really blend well with the solid coconut oil you will be using. I chose to use all the herbs she mentions and boil them together with double the oil. When it came time to strain the herbs I strained everything into one sterilized jar. Marked the top of the liquid. Marked the center of the liquid. Then I poured half of it out to continue on as she explains for the quick brew, but then I put as many of the strained herbs back into my container with my heated oil to see how that may work as far as long-term steeping to get maximum potency of the herbs.
Instead of standing and doing even more storing I put everything in the freezer. That would be frozen table scraps to compost in the back.
I waited the ten minutes and peeked at the "Neosporin" and it didn't seem ready yet so I chose to just get back to it when I felt like it. "Betty" warns against separating with the honey - it seems mine did anyway.
Then stir, stir, stir, stir to get that honey mixed in better than it previously was.
Six weeks after all of this I made anot her batch using the healing herbs that had been steeping and shaken daily. Despite my best efforts I still ended up with a puddle of honey at the bottom.
