DIY healing salve

While slicing the apples with the brand new mandolin I bought, I decided it was a good idea to almost slice off my finger tip. Terrible, I couldn’t stop the bleeding and had to rush over to my neighbors for help. I thought I needed stiches. well, I didn’t, thank goodness! Oh how I wish I had this healing salve around to put on the cut. I won’t be caught without it! Now, I make this in batches to keep jarred in medicine cabinet and give as gifts. Everyone loves it.
