I remember the first time I made a medicinal oil, back in the 80’s. I used comfrey and wanted to make a moisturizing and skin healing salve. I made a half gallon and it went bad before I could use that much!
I teach to make small quantities – say 8 ounces or so – until we get a good feel for the plant and its medicine.
You have a half gallon of doug fir oil. I bet it smells wonderfully! Do you have my book Wild and Beautiful, Naturally? There are so many recipes in there for creams, salves, and yes, even a Breathe Easy chest rub!!! I’m sure you’ll have a lot of people on the farm who will willingly benefit from your bounty!
That’s going to be a lotta lip balms! Sounds heavenly!
