Pin It Now!
Well, it's been a very, very long time since I've posted. I've been spending most of my time over at my Growing4Life blog, encouraging people to dig into God's Word. It's also a little crazy around here with two weddings in the works for this upcoming summer! I have a son and a daughter getting married 6 weeks apart!
But when someone asked me to share my Antibiotic Cream recipe, I knew I had to get it on this blog. Let me say first that this stuff is truly amazing. We use it for just about everything-- cuts, scrapes, burns, fungal infections, and rashes. My daughters even use it for zits! And it really works!
If you are interested in moving away from store-bought chemical-laden, synthetic remedies, this is a great place to start.
1 1/2 oz Bee's Wax Pellets
1 cup Organic Coconut Oil
1/4 tsp Vitamin E Oil
1/2 tsp Tea Tree Oil
20 drops Organic Lavender Oil
10 drops Organic Lemon Oil
5 drops Helichrysum Oil
Put Coconut Oil and Bees Wax into a microwave-safe quart-sized measuring cup. Microwave until pellets are melted, stopping every 30 to 45 seconds or so to stir. When it is completely liquified, add the oils. Pour into clean jars or plastic container.
*I usually pour some into lip gloss containers, creating some "travel" sticks that are very handy to keep in my purse or car.
*I have included links for you to click over to Amazon to purchase the necessary supplies for this. And, YES! It is an expensive investment-- if you think about what you are spending today. What you have to remember is that you are buying enough to make many, many recipes of this. And what you will find is that many of these supplies are used in many homemade recipes, so the oils and other things I buy really never stick around for long and I've saved a tremendous amount of money in making so much myself.
*Store this in a cool, dry place and it should have a shelf life of 4-5 years-- although if you use it as much as we do, it will never be around that long!
