From Oil to Salve... Magic!

i just finished a fresh batch of paw salve... check out how it's made!  

first the oil must be infused... i used the heat method- since chicago doesn't have a ton of sun right now... ;)
half of the oil i use is comfrey-infused...

and the other half a blend of rose, lavender, chamomile, and calendula...

look at that beautiful green comfrey oil!

i keep the infused oils in a mason jar until i'm ready to cook up some paw salve...

so when i'm ready...  it goes in a pan (a pan i ONLY use for my herbal products!) with some beeswax...

and when the beeswax is melted, it gets poured into a pyrex until it cools enough to add the vitamin e and essential oils... and then poured into the plastic jars.  and POOF!  boo boo goo paw salve is born!

simple is best!  this healing salve is perfect for anyone with paws- pooches, putty tats OR people!  www.tinyurl.com/booboogoofactsheet
