making ma"j"ic healing salve

My friend Cara has been learning all about wild edible and medicinal herbs lately and has turned me on to this beautiful healing world. Last week we had fun making our very own healing salve from the weeds growing in our yard. 
side not: You might be thinking to yourself how cute it is that Jetta spelled magic with a "j", but I have to be honest and tell you that it was me. Yes, it's true, I am the world worst speller. I guess all those straight A's in spelling I got after countless hours of drilling with my Mom should have been used for something else. I have to admit that after learning that our idea of "correct" spelling was merely created by the whims and mistakes of people in the 13 and 1400's, I felt some satisfaction.  Who says that Majic isn't spelled with a "j"?  Don't you hear the "j" sound? Am I really the idiot, or are the people who decided to stick that "g" in there the ones who we should be questioning? 
Sorry, I guess I have a lot of pent up issues when it comes to spelling.............. deep breath.....aahh








What we put into our Magic Healing Salve:

2 part Chickweed 
2 part Plantain
1 part Comfrey Leaf
Olive oil
Beeswax
Essential oil

Here are some good sites for salve making:

Love your little commentary on the spelling :)

And the salve, nice. I just made body butter for the first time a few weeks ago with coconut oil, beeswax, olive oil and essential oils...next time healing salve.

Thanks for sharing.
