Well, it’s actually Frugally Sustainables First Aid Antiseptic Ointment, but Amy calls it “Oinkment”, so we’ve went with that. This baby is like a homemade essential oil polysporin!

What more could you ask for? Oh, I don’t know, maybe the fact that its dead easy to make?!

We had a little owie here this morning so we thought we’d share the recipe.

Mac used a very, cough, liberal amount of the stuff.

So I swiped some off and put it on another healing owie he had. This is more the amount you’ll want.

We’re noticing faster healing, and it’s saving us on band aids as well! Anytime Mac or Amy got the teeny tiniest little cut it was all “I NEED A BAND AID!!” and they would proceed to each put 3-4 on. Now, they get an owie and we divert them to this, calling it oinkment or band aid cream.

Cheap to make and works like a charm. What more could you want from me!?

Cost: $2

Equipment

  • Double boiler
  • Bowl

Materials

  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons beeswax, grated
  • 8 drops vitamin E oil, preservative
  • 7 drops lavender essential oil
  • 4 drops lemon essential oil
  • 17 drops tea tree essential oil

Instructions

  • Warm olive oil in a double boiler or over LOW heat.
  • Add in the beeswax, stir it around to let it melt.
  • Then put a tablespoon worth in a small bowl in the freezer. When it is cooled to room temperature, check the consistency. I like it more of an ointment than a salve, and for it to be easily spreadable. If you want it thicker, add more beeswax!
  • When you have the right consistency, check the temperature of the oil/wax mix. It should be cool enough that you can put your finger in but not so much that it's starting to solidify.
  • Stir in your vitamin E and essential oils, pour into a jar and label well! (Please do a better job labeling than I did? Mmmkay?)

Notes

  • Feel free to make a larger batch, 20 drops=1 ml. Making a x3 batch of this works well numbers wise.
  • Good for up to 5 years
