Heal minor skin wounds at home with this safe & natural homemade herbal wound-healing salve recipe.
Being a self-sufficient homesteader often means being able to deal with emergencies when they arise. While it’s important to know when to consult a medical professional, knowing how to take care of minor injuries on your own can be very helpful – especially if you live off-the-grid or in an area where it’s not easy to get to a medical facility. Minor wounds are a great example of something you may be able to take care of yourself at home, saving both time and money, and providing your family with peace of mind.
This all-natural wound-healing salve is an excellent resource to have on hand. It’s easy to make, contains no harsh chemicals or petroleum products, and if you grow your own herbs, you can even source some of the ingredients from your own garden!
As an all-natural Neosporin alternative, it works great for healing minor skin abrasions such as scrapes, cuts, and burns, and it contains naturally-antibiotic oils to protect you from infection.
Once you’ve collected your ingredients, it should only take a few minutes to whip up a batch of this salve, and it should keep for over a year in a cool, dry place.
