This ointment is ideal for cold hands and feet. Warming juniper and ginger help assist circulation to the small capillaries in the extremities, while comfrey heals chapped skin.
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons dried comfrey leaf
2 tablespoons dried juniper berries, lightly crushed
2 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and sliced
1 fresh red chilli, chopped
1 cup olive oil
1 oz. beeswax
Place the herbs, berries, spices and oil in a bain-marie. Leave to infuse over a very low heat for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Strain, discarding the herbs and retaining the oil. Return the oil to the bain-marie, then add the beeswax, stirring until dissolved and melted. Pour into jars, then seal, label and date.
Apply as needed. Wash hands after applying and do not touch eyes.
Shelf Life: Up to 2 years.
