DIY All Natural Herbal Antiseptic Salve for People and Pets


When you live on a farm, there are plenty of opportunities to get cuts and scrapes, splinters and small injuries.

Instead of grabbing the Neosporin, why not make your own natural antiseptic salve?


On every farm there are loads of nasty bacteria and germs hanging around just waiting to strike.

 So we always make sure we have plenty of this antiseptic salve on hand to treat open cuts, scrapes and insect bites so they can begin to heal and don't get infected.

I love using this completely natural, herbal ointment that we can use on ourselves as well as our animals.

After all, someone is always getting into something they shouldn't, and this salve is perfect to apply to a wound or cut in a pinch.

Plus it smells really good!

For use on people, chickens, ducks, dogs and other animals (not recommended for use on cats).

This all natural DIY Antiseptic Salve is really quick and easy to make since it uses essential oils, but feel free to infuse your own if you are so inclined.


DIY All Natural Herbal Antiseptic Salve

(makes approximately one cup)

1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon liquid vitamin E (helps repair damaged skin)
25 drops lavender essential oil (relaxant, pain reliever, antibacterial, anti-fungal)
25 drops lemon essential oil (antibacterial, antiviral)

Melt beeswax and coconut oil over a double boiler until they melt into a liquid, stirring occasionally. 

Remove from the heat and stir in the almond oil, vitamin E and essential oils. 

Allow to cool slightly, then pour into a small covered metal container and cool completely.

Store in a cool, dark place and apply liberally on cuts and scrapes as needed, as you would any commercial antiseptic ointment or salve.
