Synergetic Balms- ongoing

Balms, ointments or salves are another way of preserving and using plant healing properties. The plant material is gathered, wilted and macerated in oil in a jar on a windowsill, exposed to the sun for a minimum of one moon cycle (preferably 3, 7 or 21). Once infused, it is strained and heated in a water bath and bee’s wax is added to solidify the substance to the desired consistency. The oily substance is then stored in a jar and can be rubbed onto skin to heal and sooth.
