    WI Cheesehead's Note:

    This uses the quick method for infusing the olive or coconut oil. If you want, you can also put the infused oil in the sun for a couple weeks. Or use the crock pot method. I found this somewhere, but like usual, I didn't copy where it was from. So this is someone else's recipe, whose, I don't know. Don't keep the salve in the fridge, or it will harden up and you won't be able to get it out. I used coconut oil because of its healing properties. This salve is great on rashes, cuts, bee/mosquito bites etc. Prep time does not include cooling time.
