What uncommon things do we want to become common?

Things like:
our children having mutual love and respect for each other.
our teenage children having love, honor, respect and obedience for their parents.
us continually becoming better friends and lovers.
our family totally trusting God in all things and putting our faith in Him to fulfill his promises.

Chelsa's Herbal Skin Salve

By Chelsa
My homemade herbal skin salve was put to the test. We use it all the time on ant and mosquito bites, but I wasn't sure how it would work on bigger stings, like wasps. Well, I just found out. Yesterday I accidentally stepped on a red wasp and he stung me under my little toe. I yelled out in pain thinking my toe was on fire. I hopped to the bathroom as fast as I could and slathered my toe with the green goo. I kid you not, my toe stopped throbbing almost immediately and there was no swelling or redness at all. All proof of a sting was completely gone within 2 minutes! My toe never got sore or itchy or anything! I was amazed! That stuff really works and it probably works best the quicker you put it on. We've toyed with the idea of putting it on the market and selling it, but I wanted proof that it's as good as they claim it to be. Now I know.


  1. Tom Fowler here...it looks like avacado pulp, Chelsa! I am interested in it. Does it resemble old Indian poultices?

  2. As far as I know Indian poultices were made by crushing the fresh herb with a little water into a type of paste and placing it on the wound or boiling the dried herbs in a little water and putting the cooled mixture in a cloth and placing in on the wound.

    The skin salve I make is made by adding a little boiling water to the dried herbs to get them just barely moistened, then adding olive oil and letting it simmer on a very low setting for about 3 days. I warm mine in a crock pot on the lowest setting. Then I strain the herbs out and keep the warm herb infused oil, add some shredded beeswax, stir well, pour it into small containers and let it cool. The beeswax thickens it so it can be rubbed on. They call it a salve instead of a poultice because of it's thickness. It will last up to a year or so if stored properly. I gave Karen some while she was here. Maybe she'll let you look at it and try some if she has any left!
