SALVE TUTORIAL - Make Rosemary and Rose Balm / Salves
Learn to home make herbal salves (often called a Balm ) in this east to follow tutorial.
I am using dehydrated Rose petals and fresh Rosemary from my garden but you can use what you like. Choose a complimentary pure essential oil, always research if it is suitable and safe for the users of your products.
This Salve is very refreshing and is wonderful on your lips as well as helps to keep you alert and can even help with a stuffy nose.

Welcome to Moat Cottage Homesteading,
I'm Elissa and here at Moat Cottage, we raise and grow and process some of our own free range meat, organic vegetables and fruit.
We grow all of our herbs for both eating and medicinal purposes as well as hunt, fish and forage.
We preserve our produce for the year ahead by canning, dehydrating and freezing and we work on being prepared for emergency situations.
We don't like plastic, chemicals and artificial fragrances and are trying to live an older style life balanced with this modern world lifestyle.
Good health and natural living has always been a high priority for our family and despite this two family members are living with auto immune diseases, myself included.
We focus on what we can do, when we can do it, stay positive and so I make these videos for you on my best days.
