>> 2 tbsp. comfrey leaf, dried
>> 2 tbsp. olive oil
>> 2 tbsp. coconut oil
>> 1/8 tsp vitamin E oil
>> 5 to 10 drops peppermint essential oil
>> 1 tbsp. beeswax
Create a double boiler by placing a glass measuring cup in a saucepan, on top of a canning jar ring. Place the herbs in a cloth tea bag. Pour the oils over the tea bag. Simmer on medium heat for 30 to 45 minutes. Press out the herbs to release their herbal goodness into the oil.
Add 1/8 tsp vitamin E oil and the peppermint essential oil to the comfrey mixture.
Place back into the pot and place the beeswax into the oils. Once the wax has melted, stir with a clean popsicle stick or toothpick. Pour the liquid into a jar or tin to harden.
Label and date the container.
