We have just discovered a wonderful ointment recipe which makes use of all-natural ingredients that promise immediate soothing effects to burns and other light wounds. The powerhouse ingredients of this wonder recipe include olive oil, wormwood, marshmallow root, comfrey, witch hazel bark and (of course) raw honey. The blend of these natural ingredients should make this ointment very beneficial in the treatment of chapped lips and skin, minor cuts and scrapes, rashes, sunburns and first to second degree burns.

Here is a rundown of some of the ingredients used in the recipe:



Raw Honey
Since very ancient times, raw honey has been used to treat wounds, cuts and burns. It helps in removing dead skin tissues thereby providing a favorable environment for new and healthy tissues to grow. Some studies have shown that when applied onto the skin, raw honey is beneficial in expediting the skin’s healing process due to its sugars, minerals, vitamins and enzyme content. [1] Note that you will not receive the same benefits from “ordinary” shop-bought honey, which is typically highly processed.

Marshmallow root
When made into poultice, marshmallow root is claimed to be beneficial in soothing pains and sores. Also known for its anti-inflammatory effects, marshmallow is widely used externally for blood loss, scalds, swelling, burns, wounds and bruises.

Comfrey
Also known as knitbone, comfrey has been one of the most popular herbs for centuries for wound healing. It is widely used to wounds, bleeding, burns, swelling and inflammation. Comfreys are also good sources of allantoin compound which has been found to be useful in encouraging the growth of new cells. In effect, burns heal fast with less scarring. Comfrey is an excellent reservoir of nutrients like Vitamins B12, A, C, E, B1 and B2 as well as minerals like manganese, phosphorus, calcium and iron. [2]

Witch hazel bark
Known for its astringent and anti-inflammatory effects, witch hazel bark is claimed to be effective in the treatment of cuts, wounds, blisters, boils and burns. When applied onto the skin, the bark of witch hazel produces warmth and moisture that helps shrink inflammation and make the wounds heal faster. [3]

    You should also look into “selfheal” it grows all over Michigan. I am a certified Herbalist and “Selfheal” is my favorite plant for wound care! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prunella_(plant)
