Home Made Herbal Polysporin….No Lies, Easy & Useful

Herbal Poly
What we all need to do is clean house in “The Medicine Chest”…there are so many easy recipes for healthier replacements than your local drugstore med’s. I found this recipe on a really cool blog called Frugally Sustainable http://frugallysustainable.com/
When I made, I adjusted a tad….just because I can.

First-Aid Antiseptic Ointment

Ingredients

-1 1/2 ounces beeswax, grated
-1 cup olive oil
-1/4 teaspoon vitamin E oil
-1/2 teaspoon tea tree oil
-20 drops lavender essential oil
-10 drops lemon essential oil
Directions
1. Over very low heat, in a small pot or double boiler, melt oils and beeswax.
2. Remove from heat and add vitamin E oil and essential oils. Stir with a chopstick.
3. Pour mixture into small sterilized jars (or a mason jar). Allow to cool on counter.
4. Store in a cool, dark place. Use as needed on wounds. Will keep for approximately 5 years.

Notes

antiseptic properties of the essential oils include:
■Tea tree oil: antibiotic, anti-fungal, antiviral, antibacterial
■Lavender: analgesic (pain relief), antibiotic, anti-fungal, antiviral, antibacterial
■Lemon: antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, antibacterial

If you don’t enjoy the smell of lavender, you can substitute chamomile essential oils for lavender and fir essential oils for lemon.
