How to make it

  • Put equal amounts of the flowers in a jam jar, adding a teaspoon of dried marjoram.
  • Bruise the fresh flowers by squashing them as you put them in.
  • Pour over the olive oil and seal the jar, placing on a sunny windowsill for 2 weeks to extract the properties.
  • After 2 weeks, strain the mixture through a cloth so that the oil and plants are separated.
  • Give the flowers a last squeeze to get out last bits of oil.
  • Put the oil to one side.
  • Very importantly, you need to get the ratio correct.
  • It is 1 part flower oil to 4 parts beeswax.
  • In an old pan, on a very low heat, melt the beeswax block.
  • Slowly add the flower oil, stirring constantly but very gently.
  • Once the blend is mixed, pour into a jar, leaving the lid off, and allow to set.
  • Seal and label.

  • The balm will be good for a year.
  • Do not apply to broken skin, and do not use if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.

  • Directions:
  • Apply the balm with your fingertips to the affected area, massaging gently in an anti-clockwise direction to take away the injury, making a circle nine times. Ask for Eir's help in healing you, remembering to leave her a gift in thanks.
