Dandelion Salve - Vegan

Dandelion Salve - Vegan

Regular price $3.00 Sale

I have a huge dandelion plant in my back yard.  I'd originally intended to let it get to about 3 years, then pull the root.  Well, that was about 4 years ago.  There are 5 really big dandelions in my back yard, but the oldest is definitely the queen.  Nearly every day, I get out there and pick the flowers right before they open and put them in my jar.  As the season progresses, the queen dandelion gets taller and taller.  Last year, I looked up to the top of this dandelion and I am 6 feet tall.  At any rate, these flowers get infused into olive oil for 6 weeks under sun and moon light, then strained out and a new batch of flowers are added to infuse again.  So, yes, a double infusion. 

Once that is done, a beautiful salve is made with a little ginger essential oil.  It encourages healing in the skin, but I've also had several people report soothing of their pains as well.  Delightful.
