Foraging herbs and making a salve

In this video blog I take you foraging for chickweed, plantain, and comfrey leaves. I then take you into the kitchen to create a healing salve. I included a small math lesson in order to help people understand how to calculate the volume of vitamin E required to preserve the salve.

I chose to use chickweed, plantain, and comfrey leaves in this healing salve because of their herbal properties.

Chickweed has demulcent, emollient, and refrigerant properties. All these properties are beneficial for skin. This amazing little star weed is full of vitamins that nourish, cool, and heal skin.

Plantain has alterative, stringent, diuretic and antiseptic properties. These properties prevent swelling, soothe irritation, and promote healing of our skin.

Comfrey has vulnerary, demulcent, and astringent properties. Comfrey leaf has a magical way of healing tissues making it essential in any healing salve.
