Salves

Post by loona wynd »

Salves are wonderful things. They can be used for physical healing as well as spiritual practices. Salves come in many different forms and styles. One of my favorite salves would be a plantain salve. I use it as an antiseptic on wounds. There are others out there which could also be useful.

I bet a Calendula and Plantain salve would be a powerful combination.

I mean they are both for healing. They have different healing properties that would help each other.

Do you think there are some herbs that work better in salves than in other forms?
