eczema salve

excuse the awful photo...it's so dark so early now!





Two of my boys have dry skin and eczema in the winter months.  
I usually make a salve with herb infused olive oil and neem oil.
While looking up different salves, I came across this one and decided to give it a try (I ended up increasing the beeswax amount to a 1/4 cup grated beeswax).
I usually use essential oils in small amounts to hide the smell of neem, not as medicine themselves. 
But this salve seems to be working great already!  So, today I cleaned out some babyfood jars that someone gave us and painted the lids, and fill them with this salve for family and friends.
