                             RECIPE OF THE MONTH  ~~~~~~~~~~~AUGUST, 2002

It's great for bug bites, stings, cuts, burns.
Calendula (marigold flowers) are best known
for these soothing, healing properties.

Step I:  
Infusion ~
8 oz dried calendula flowers & petals
32 oz olive oil - any brand

In an old pot or pan place the calendula flowers and cover with the olive oil. Using the double boiler method, simmer for an hour. Repeat once or twice a day for 3 days. Let cool completely and strain the infused oil through cheesecloth. Collect the infused oil and store it in an amber or dark bottle, in a cool place.

Step II:
Ointment ~ Recipe makes about 13 ozs.

Mix 8 ozs of the calendula infused oil with 3 oz of beeswax, 2 oz cocoa butter, 1/2 tsp. Vitamin E oil.  Melt in a small pot on the stove top on very low heat. Once all the ingredients have melted, carefully pour into pots. Store in the refrigerator for a longer shelf life. 

A note about consistency: 
Increase or decrease the beeswax depending on the consistency (softness) wanted in the finished product.

This is a very easy recipe and once the oil in infused, you can then use the infused oil in other ointments, salves or soaps.

buy dried calendula  |  buy beeswax, cocoa butter & Vit. E oil  |  buy pots or jars
