Homemade Antiseptic Ointment

Homemade Antiseptic Ointment

When you live and work around a farm, there are plenty of opportunities to get cuts and scrapes, and there are loads of nasty bacteria and germs hanging around just waiting to strike.

We always make sure we have plenty of Neosporin on hand to treat open cuts so they won't get infected, but I was interested in making a completely natural ointment that we could use on ourselves as well as our animals.
We currently have horses, a cat, a dog, chickens and ducks and between them all, someone is always getting into something they shouldn't.

ointment ingredients
This antiseptic ointment is a breeze to make and is not only completely natural, it is also nontoxic so if you use it on your animals and they lick it it's not a problem.
Antiseptic Ointment
2-1/2 ounces beeswax
3/4 cup olive or coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon liquid vitamin E (helps repair damaged skin)
10 drops lavender essential oil (relaxant, pain reliever, antibacterial, anti-fungal)
10 drops lemon essential oil (antibacterial, antiviral)

double boilerGrate beeswax and melt with olive or coconut oil over low heat in a double boiler or a glass bowl set on top of a saucepan of boiling water.

Remove from heat and stir in oils until well mixed.

Pour into a small metal or glass container and allow to cool and firm up. Store in a cool dry place and apply as needed to cuts and scrapes.

  1. Wow! Never heard of this one but it's worth a try since it's all natural. Won't hurt I think. Will also share this to friends over at the indoor shooting range ga. Thanks for posting!
