DIY Plantain Salve
  1. Infuse your carrier oil with the dried plantain - just put them in a clean jar together and let it sit for a week. (It's okay if you wait longer - it will only make your salve more potent! You may need to add more oil if you wait longer, but that's okay, right?)
  2. Strain the oil out into a clean jar.
  3. Melt your beeswax using a double boiler. Watch it carefully!
  4. Add your infused oil to the beeswax as soon as the beeswax is melted. The cooler oil may cause parts of the beeswax to become solid again, but just stir it gently as it heats up until it's all mixed together well. Remove it from heat as soon as it's completely liquid and combined.
  5. You can add 10 drops of tea tree oil to add more antibacterial properties and to help preserve the salve. Stir it in!
  6. Pour the liquid into a tin or jar for storage. It will harden as it cools... and it's ready!
