I have a friend who's having back surgery next week. I made this salve for my own back scar from surgery about three years ago and it was great. I changed it up just a little (rarely make the same thing exactly the same, even with the recipe on file) and used the following herbs in 2oz of Apricot Oil, 1 1/2 oz Kukui Nut Oil and 1/2 oz Macadamia Nut Oil: Chaparral leaf, Comfrey root, Borage seed, Marshmallow root, Alfalfa leaf, Lavender flowers, and Chamomile flowers. To this, I added 11 drops of Wild Lavender, 2 drops each of Helichrysum and German Chamomile and about an oz of beeswax. I'm planning to add a whole line of herbal tinctures and maybe a salve or two to my web site in the next couple of weeks and I think this one's a winner so look for it there.
One advantage of working in hospice is that I get to play with all the therapy dogs. This is Asher, a Corgi.
