4th Grade Salve Making and Purple Deadnettle Tea

The fourth grade studied the abundant weeds on our campus. During our study we learned that most of the weeds are edible and highly medicinal! We collected Plantain (Plantago Major and Lanceolata) and soaked it in Organic Olive Oil for 2 weeks. Then we strained out the leaves and mixed the oil with some melted beeswax. Lastly, we added a bit of vanilla and lavender essential oils. This salve is great for any skin ailment especially chapped skin. We also made a hot tea from dandelions and an iced Henbit Purple Deadnettle Tea. Purple Deadnettle is good for allergies and Dandelions have multiple health benefits.
