This salve with a funny name has a funny name for a reason. You see it was created when my too curious little boy wanted to see what would happen when he messed with some fire ants. Well anyone who has ever been bit by a fire ant before knows they bite and they HURT! Well he got bit 35 times on his arm that we could count it resulted in a visit to the emergency room and prescriptions for more creams and ointments than I care to have to use with my busy life and well not a one of them was natural and many had chemicals that we avoid. I put my herbalist hat on and thought back to some wisdom from Rosemary Gladstar and created this good for just about anything salve and gave it a funny name to make my boy smile and it stuck.

It all starts by infusing the olive oil with herbal goodness in this salve that means chickweed (which stops the itching almost immediately making it wonderful on all itchies not just ants), Comfrey Leaf and Root (which promotes the rapid healing of skin and tissue cells), plantain (well this is my go to herb for all skin issues because of its antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-inflammatory properties), lavender, calendula (which is used to treat and disinfect cuts and scrapes and treat infections of the skin), and rosemary. I infuse this oil for a minimum of 6 weeks before using it to make a salve (with the exception of the first salve which was oven infused because of time sensitivity).

When the infused oil is ready it is strained and warmed with Cocoa butter, coconut oil, and beeswax to make it solid. Then it is poured into lip balm tube just for you. These are great to keep in your purse/bag or to send with the kids.
