Dandelion Salve

This is our family’s all-around skin moisturizer.

We handpick and dry dandelions, then infuse various oils with them.

My favorite method is slow infusion—simply let the dried flowers meld with the oils for a few weeks. Strain the dandelions from the oils, add other skin nourishing ingredients, and voila! Golden goodness.

I make a vat of this salve for us because we use it for everything…
Knees, elbows, feet, & hands.
Sun-worn skin after a day on the beach.
On dry hair lengths as a pre-shower treatment or a teeny-tiny smidge of it on hair ends after shower.
Chapped lips.
Eye area and sun-damaged skin treatment at bedtime.
