I don’t know what I would do without my little tin of healing salve. It does a great job at helping me heal up all of my mishaps and garden accidents. It’s so simple to make and takes just a few minutes.

As you might imagine, here at daycare we get quite a few cuts, scrapes and scratches that need some boo boo cream. A little dab of this healing salve and a good cartoon band-aid and we are good as new.

Mr. Kent doesn’t really appreciate our selection of band-aids. He would give anything to have a plain ole brown one. Plain is boring though, just get you an Elmo or pj mask band-aid, they work just the same.

I’m always amazed at how much better this salve works than Neosporin from the store. I had a fundraiser for a local animal shelter and I sold this salve as one of the products. The people that bought it just raved about it.

I had a grandpa of one of my daycare kids tell me that his wife had a rash that she just could not get cleared up and they got out that salve as a last effort and it was gone in a day!

I get a ton of scratches in the garden and bites sometimes. This homemade salve clears them right up. I’ve even used it on a brown recluse bite and it did the job.

Do Terra essential oils are pure and keep me from having allergy troubles that can occur with essential oils. I love knowing I’m not going to react to them.

DIY healing balm

I don’t use anything else when I get hurt since I started making my own healing balm. It’s the best thing I’ve ever used and I know it’s safe for my body. I love knowing what’s in what I use. We make it in big batches and fill Altoids tins with it. 

The salve lasts in the tin without refrigeration or anything. Even after a year, ours was still good when we found a tin of it we had misplaced. It’s great to have on hand for any minor injury.

    This looks like a great project for my daughter and I to do this summer. What a great gift it would make as well. Love incorporating essential oils into remedies.

    I need to try this. I have arthritis, tendonitis, and bercitis in one hip from a sports injury and I have to take ibuprofen way more often than I’d like.

  4. Kayla says:

    I’ve tried them and you’re right! I suffer from very chapped lips and the healing salve works far better than anything I’ve ever tried. I love the name Sore Away, and it also works like a charm! Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. Love your recipes. I need to get a few additional oils to make them. I usually just use the lavender and peppermint each mixed with the coconut oil. Maybe adding the other few will make the difference.

    That was supposed to read “massage”

    As a ssage therapist (in training), I hope to work with athletes some day. I can’t wait to try out your Sore Away!!
