    The salve has.........

    Comfrey
    Lavender
    Calendula <---------- I infused the dry herbs in the olive oil!
    Chamomile
    Oregano

    Beeswax
    Olive oil

    I also added a little lavender essential oil.

    *******************************************************************
    The coop cleaner (which smells really good)

    White vinegar
    Orange peel
    Lime peel
    (or you could use lemon)
    Mint (I used apple Mint) optional!!!


    I have seen some people add a Cinnamon stick


    Put peels and mint in a Mason jar then fill the rest of the jar up with white vinegar (NOT APPLE CIDER VINEGAR!!!!!)

    Shake it every other day for 1 month!!! (it's a bummer to wait so long[​IMG])

    I forgot you can dilute the orange vinegar with water to make it go a bit further!!! it's great for disinfecting too!!!
