Hi Tylluan

Can I add a herb to your list? Having been on a recent herbal healing workshop that concentrated on salves, creams and the like, I've become a fan of ginger root for healing purposes. If you make up a salve of ginger, black mustard seeds, cloves, peppermint, chilli powder and rosemary, it is great for helping combat the cold in winter.

Hi Tylluan

Magical herb use - part 2. It's now a bit wintry and we're coming up to Yule so I thought that I'd brew up (is that really the word?) a few jars of calendula (dried marigold) salve for the winter months. Calendula or a calendula/chamomile mix is really, really good for rashes or chapped skin, ie very soothing. If you make it with rapeseed, sunflower or sesame seed oil as a base, it can be used for most people's skins, even the most sensitive!

Hi Tylluan

Magical herb use - part 3. As I prepare a new batch of comfrey & plantain salve for 2014 (very good for muscular aches and pains), here is a tip for those who do not make that many herbal remedies from scratch. My tip is that you should use as many herbs as possible to leaven the effect of your medicines at the start, ie add some chamomile, rosemary, yarrow, peppermint or cloves, to avoid an over-concentration of the key herbs. For example, since my comfrey/plantain salve is designed to be rubbed into a person's skin, I will add about 5g of calendula to the general mix, just to make the ointment a little smoother.

Hi Everyone

So here we are - spring bank holiday and half term (for me) and, true to form, the weather turns cold and rainy. So, I thought I'd prepare a few jars of a warming mix for the remainder of the year. It's a salve, with a beeswax/sunflower oil base and the main ingredients are ginger + calendula. The dried marigolds ensure that the ginger is not too abrasive, but the ointment is designed to help circulation in general.

Blessed Be
