Everything You Need To Make Your Own:
This herb is useful in almost every arena of life. One of my favorites. It can be used for everything from perfume and replacing cleaning products, to wound healing and calming an anxious mind. It is extremely calming, and relaxes the mind, and can help induce sleep. It can calm skin irritations, sooth bug bites, is an insect repellent, and can decrease pain. It has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties which address germs, infection and pain. This should be a staple herb in every household.
An herbal salve, or an ointment, is a medicinal rub that is made by a process using an infused oil that is further prepared with beeswax to create a thicker product. This is a perfect addition to your first aid kit for all types of skin abrasions.
A liniment is a liquid herbal extract that is used externally. It is made much in the same way as a tincture but is never ingested. Liniments are applied to the skin on mainly muscle and joint areas. Herbs that are typically used in liniments are those with anti-inflammatory properties. Liniments are not intended for broken skin. They are made with either witch hazel or rubbing alcohol. This kit provides you with witch hazel because it is a very gentle base for sensitive individuals. This is a great addition to your medicine cabinet in place of muscle and joint rub.
