Necessary Ranch Salve


| 4/15/2019 3:53:00 PM


My husband and I have a lot in common. First of all, we love living out away from town. We also love animals especially dogs, horses, and barn cats. We love road trips and Mexican food. Another thing we share are mysterious bumps and bruises, scrapes and cuts. Every week, as we work around the place, we come up with bumps and bruises, scrapes and cuts and a lot of the time we have no idea how we got them! I guess we are so focused on what we are doing at the time that we don’t notice when we get some minor ding.

Next thing you know we’re in the kitchen and looking at our arms, for example, and wondering how that got there! It’s not that we’re accident prone. Well, maybe we are but we are only small accident prone. When we went to see the dermatologist recently he told us that plain old Vaseline works best on minor stuff and we were not to use antibiotic ointment. Imagine that! I decided to make my own salve as I am not in favor of petroleum products no matter how recommended they are by the good, ole doctor!
