πŸ’• Made up a lovely fresh batch of Balm of Gilead! Homesteaders polysporin.

Balm of Gilead has been used for at least the last century, but has its own roots in the Bible.

🌿 My favourite part of making this is that I can forage for my own cottonwood buds, infuse my own oil, and make my own salve. From tree to knee (if that’s what your trying to heal! πŸ˜‰) No crazy ingredients, no preservatives, just healing from the Earth.

πŸ’« It has amazing anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anti-rheumatic properties making it perfect for athletes or for those who lead active lifestyles. It relieves the pain associated with sore muscles, bruising, general aches and pains, and arthritis.
πŸ’« You can also apply this balm to bites, stings, rashes, burns, cuts, scrapes, dry scaly skin, abrasions, chapped skin, diaper rash, as well as eczema, psoriasis, and minor wounds.
❀️ I love it for my dried, chapped lips, heals them right up! I apply to the chest to rid of coughs.
➑️ Not for those who are allergic to aspirin tho, as it creates a natural salicylic acid when in contact with the skin.
πŸ“£ Let’s hear it for Mother Nature’s healing abilities! You go girl!
