Homemade Anti-itch Balm (jewelweed)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

6 cups chopped jewel weed
2 cups olive oil
1 3/4 cups grated beeswax
Simmer olive oil and jewel weed together for at least an hour.
Cover and set aside over night.
Reheat to a simmer. Use a food mill or colander and spoon to mash the mix, reserving oil. Strain again to get rid of any unwanted particles.
Use a double boiler, or put water in your pot, about half full, place an aluminum bowl over top. Bring the oil to a simmer in the bowl. Slowly add the beeswax. Melting it down.
Pour into jars, and allow to cool.
You can add essential oils for a different, not so earthy smell if you want.
Awesome for bug bites or poison ivy rash.
