Homemade Pain Salve
I am allergic to pain medications and antibiotics. I suffer from migraines and body aches and pains. I decided to research homemade salve making and loved what I read about these particular herbs. I make homemade soaps, shampoo's etc and use some of these herbs in my product's, so I decided to try making my own homemade salve for pain.
I made the following recipe:
You can use the oil of your choice, I used Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 Cups of olive oil infused Calendula oil
1 Cup of Arnica oil
1 Cup of Cottonwood oil
1 Cup of beeswax
2 TBS of Cayenne Pepper
2 TBS of Ginger Root Powder
2 TBS Turmeric Root Powder
I was able to fill 4-2 ounce glass jars with this recipe.
The Salve does not have any odor to it and has a caramel color to it.
I can honestly say that this salve does take my pains away. I haven't had to deal with a migraine for the month! Anytime I feel a migraine coming on, I put some of this salve on my temples and I don't get a migraine. I shared it with a friend who needs a knee replacement. She puts some on her knee and she is pain free! I'm by no means saying my friend is cured and no longer needs a knee replacement, she just doesn't need to take pain pills when her knee acts up. I wish I could upload my pictures of it, my phone isn't my friend right now, lol!
