Organic virgin coconut oil - I probably don't need to introduce it to you at length, a lot has already been written about it. He is simply great. We find in it a high content of antioxidants and vitamins A, C and E. It is perfectly absorbed into the skin and penetrates directly into its cellular structure, which is why it is so helpful in the healing of various injuries. It can also deal with scars, eczema or acne spots. In addition, it protects the sores from possible bacteria that could slow down healing.

Extra virgin olive oil - is one of our favorites, and not only in the kitchen. Similar to coconut oil, olive oil penetrates deep into the skin and provides it with the necessary hydration and plenty of vitamins and antioxidants. In addition, it leaves the skin soft and supple, and creates a protective layer on it. It has an antiseptic effect, heals and relieves inflammation. Its great advantage is that it does not cause allergies, so it is also great for treating sensitive children's skin.

Calendula Flower – Calendula is one of those flowers with a capital K. It's almost unbelievable how it speeds up healing. It certainly deserves more attention in modern medicine. :) Due to its significant anti-inflammatory effect, it is mainly used to prepare ointments or tinctures. It accelerates the healing of purulent and poorly healing wounds with an inflammatory environment, and is also used against fungi and leg ulcers.

Dried lavender – a traditional, beautifully smelling herb that we are all familiar with. The lavender flower is often added to herbal mixtures used for pain relief for its calming effects. It helps in healing unsightly wounds and injuries. Therefore, it cannot be missing in the pain ointment.

Chamomile – has significant anti-inflammatory effects, soothes, disinfects and is a means of treating diseases of the skin and mucous membranes, especially inflammation. Therefore, it is often added to ointments with healing effects, to skin products, oil baths and soaps. It is used for wounds, burns and inflammatory diseases. In short, it is an irreplaceable medicine.

Beeswax – it's a miracle, its very creation deserves admiration. It is created by the transformation of honey and pollen still in the body of the honey bee. Beeswax softens, softens and protects the skin. It has great antioxidant properties and is rich in vitamin A. You will also find beeswax in our pain ointment because it holds the other ingredients together and ensures the right consistency.

Tea tree oil – is a great fighter not only against various bacteria and viruses, but also against fungi. That is why it is mainly used in products intended for problematic skin. It copes with infections and inflammations. Its fragrance is also refreshing and invigorating.

Lavender essential oil – one of the most versatile essential oils that can be used directly on the skin without any problems. It's one of our big favorites! It has an antiseptic effect, regenerates skin cells, soothes and promotes healing. And last but not least, it smells absolutely wonderful!

Prepare about 250ml of ointment for production

- 1/2 cup (120ml) virgin coconut oil

- 1/2 cup (120ml) of extra virgin olive oil

- 1/3 cup (40g) of dried lavender

- 1/3 cup (40g) of calendula flower

- 1/3 cup (40g) of chamomile

- 3 teaspoons of beeswax

- 10 drops of tea tree oil

- 5 drops of lavender essential oil

- 1 spoon of honey

How to do it?

Melt the coconut oil in a water bath and mix the olive oil with it. Pour dried lavender, calendula flower and chamomile into the heated oils. Cover with a lid and let it cook on low heat for about half an hour. Then strain the oil through a fine sieve or cheesecloth so that no herbs remain in it.

Add beeswax to the created herbal oil and heat everything again in a water bath to dissolve the wax. When the wax is liquid, stir the mixture thoroughly and remove the bowl from the heat. Let it cool for a while, and then add honey and essential oils to the mixture, stir and pour it into a suitable glass, jar or cup, for example into this beautiful tin container. As soon as the ointment starts to cool, it starts to solidify.

It needs to be stirred once every minute or two so that the honey does not settle at the bottom.
