Itch and Rash Homemade Herbal Salve with Comfrey

Put 2 tablespoons of dried chickweed and 2 tablespoons of dried comfrey into 2 cups of olive oil and follow the instructions for the "basic salve recipe." This salve is handy to have for treating diaper rash or for the itching caused by poison oak or poison ivy.

There are good reasons why chickweed works well for rashes. Chickweed has an active ingredient that is similar to something found in papaya. This ingredient helps to prevent the degeneration of cells. Papaya was also used by Native Americans as a meat tenderizer, and meat tenderizer is one of the best applications for bee and insect bites or stings. So, because the chickweed has similar properties, it acts in the same manner as the papaya.

Comfrey has many properties that make it useful for rashes. It has pain-killing properties and it is a great over-all healer. Allantoin is the substance responsible for most of the healing properties in comfrey. It allows skin tissue to heal much faster. The regenerative abilities of comfrey make it a great addition to salves. It is also very effective in destroying bacteria in wounds and cuts.
