I have a 5 year old boy. Now I don’t know about other boy moms, but this boy mom seems to always be cleaning and mending wounds caused by roughhousing, sports, the park, getting out of bed,😅 etc.  

I developed this amazing and soothing salve to help heal cuts, scrapes and bruises. It is effective on bee stings, mosquito bites, and eczema as well. Give this recipe a try, and let me know what you think. 

• 1 cup of Coconut Oil
 • 1 cup of Olive Oil or Avocado Oil
 • 1/4 Cup of Beeswax
 • 1/4 Cup of Calendula Flowers
 • 10 drops of tea tree oil (add 10 drops more for children over 10)
 • 20 drops of Lavender (
add 10 drops more for children over 10)
 1. Put the coconut oil and olive oil in a double boiler. Melt the coconut oil if it isn’t melted already.
 2. Add the calendula flower petals (dried) and simmer on low for around 2 hours. Make sure to stir a few times during the process. You can also add the oil and calendula to a crockpot and put on low for up to 3 hours.
 3. Strain the mixture into a bowl through a cheesecloth.
 4. Now add the calendula oil back to the saucepan and add the beeswax. Melt the beeswax.
 5. Remove from heat and let cool for around 15 minutes.
 6. Add the essential oils and stir.
 7. Pour into a glass jar and store for up to a year! Makes 1 cup

** This recipe can be modified for hotter climates by increasing the beeswax content. This consistency is ideal for a cool climate, or wintertime.
