Balm of Gilead Homemade Herbal Salve For Scrapes And Cuts

Place 2 tablespoons of the buds in 2 cups of hot olive oil and allow to simmer, covered, 3 hours. Strain and add 1 1/2 ounces of beeswax and 1/2 teaspoon tincture of benzoin to the strained mixture. Test for consistency and place in sterile jar.

This is a good salve to use on burns, scratches, and swelling injuries. Also good for any skin eruptions. The signature of balm of Gilead is the resinous exudation covering the buds. It contains salicin, which is also found in aspirin. It has some of the same pain-killing and anti-inflammatory properties as aspirin.
