Home Remedies For Abrasions
- Pour olive oil over St. John’s Wort flowers (Hypericum perforatum) and let steep for 20 days. Spread the oil infusion on the affected area.
- Soak some Madonna lily petals (Lilium candidum), picked before the flower has fully blossomed, and cover the wounds with them.
- Make a compress with concoction from dried calendula (Calendula officinalis). Take about 40 g of the herb and bring them to a boil in 1 l of water. After the concoction cools down, strain the liquid and soak the compress with it. Apply on the affected area for at least 1 hour.
Ointment for Abrasions
2 tea cups of cold pressed olive oil;
¾ tea cup of dry blossoms of calendula (Calendula officinalis);
½ tea cup of melted beeswax;
3 table spoonfuls of cocoa oil;
2 table spoonfuls of shea (Vitelana paradoxa);
5 drops of tea tree oil;
5 drops of lavender oil.
How do you make it?
Mix the olive oil, the cocoa oil and the dry herbs in a bowl. For three to four hours boil them in a water bath at low heat. Be careful not to let water evaporate.
The herb oil is carefully filtered so that there are no traces of the herb left.
Melt the shea oil and the beeswax on water bath. After they are melted, mix them with the olive oil and the cocoa oil until you get a smooth mixture.
Add the lavender and tea tree oils. Pour the mixture into small jars and close them tightly only after the mixture stiffens.
This ointment does not contain any preservatives and artificial aroma but its ingredients contain natural preservatives, so you can use the ointment for one or two years.
