I finally made my own batch of pine pitch salve last night out of a bunch of lodge-pole pine sap… I harvested in Montana and tossed dried chaparral, dried plantain leaves, beeswax and cold pressed virgin olive oil.
For those who don’t know what these plants do … This batch is extremely antimicrobial and anti inflammatory good for putting on wounds, burns, sore muscles, sore joints, splinters, bee stings… nettle stings and anything you’d put Neosporin on.
If you ever get the urge yourself… just got ask the trees if you can have their medicine, then if they let you… double boil a handful of each item with some olive oil for any length of time (I did 4 hours)… the longer the time… the more medicinal properties cook with the oil. After you’re done cooking it…strain it into another pot and then double boil it with the beeswax added.. once that melts 5-10 minutes.. immediately pour the salve into the containers of your choice.
In my experience… you might have to find another home for your weed if you run out of jars to fill.
