Purple Deadnettle Salve by Gypsy

Uses - sore muscles, skin abrasions, skin irritation, dry or chapped skin.

Collect some purple deadnettle and allow to dry completely.

Ratio 1tbsp of nettle to 1/4cup of oil, I work with coconut, jojoba or cold pressed almond oil.

Place Deadnettle and oil in a glass bowl, then make a bain-marie - fill a pan with boiling water, place the glass bowl with Deadnettle and oil on top of pan, simmer on lowest heat for 2 hours.

Strain, once cooled, then measure your liquid.

Add beeswax or equivalent at a ratio of 10-1

So, 180ml of liquid, you would need to add 18g of wax.

Heat to melt wax, then place in a sterilised jar. Keeps for up to 1 year.
