What is salve? Salve is a medical ointment used on the surface of the skin to soothe some type of ailment. The most common type of medicinal salve that’s available on the market is Neosporin.
I’ve been making homemade salve for years and don’t use anything else on myself or my children. It’s safe and effective.
Neosporin works, but it’s not all natural and you wouldn’t be able to make it yourself at home. Antibiotic ointment reduces the amount of time it takes for cuts and scrapes to heal.
The great thing about being self-reliant is learning how to use medicinal herbs and oils so we’re not so heavily reliant on pharmaceuticals.
Salve is easy to make and just as effective as Neosporin, but a much better, safer, all natural alternative. I use this exclusively on myself and my children for cuts, scrapes and superficial burns. Use it the same way you would use Neosporin.
The type of oils that I chose to use in my medicinal salve was based on a lot of research. I encourage you to do your own research to find out what each essential oil does and how it’ll act as a topical treatment. Feel free to switch out any of the oils to fit your needs.
