In the last blog we looked at the positive effects of shea butter’s anti-inflammatory action. Today, let’s look at some different oils that also have anti-inflammatory properties, but that work better on specific areas of the body (e.g. muscles, skin, nerves etc). These herbal infusion oils are known as maceration oils, and are made by leaching oils from herbs.
Today I’ll be showing you how to prepare a versatile salve with a strong anti-inflammatory effect! Using shea butter and herbal leaching oil as the main ingredients, this ointment is most effective for autumn and winter skin care, and will tackle areas where rough, dry and inflamed skin are conspicuous.
