A Simple Healing Salve

Yesterday the weather warmed up enough for me to get out in my garden. I pulled up last year's tomato plants and broke them up so we can till it all back into the soil. I hurt my hand on one of the plants, instead of snapping the stem my hand slipped up along the stem and it slit my thumb. I put a simple healing salve on it and a bandaid. Today it is already starting to stitch itself together.

Healing Salve
pinch comfrey root powder
pinch slippery elm bark powder
just enough honey to make a thick paste

Mix together. After washing the wound well then place the salve in and on the wound and bandage. All 3 ingredients are wound healers.
