Homemade Antiseptic Ointment

ointmentPatriots Against the NWO – by Pete Smith

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.

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.

    Thank you very much for sharing this. Some folks (one that I know of personally)
    are allergic to Neosporin.

    I would like to point out that this alternative “sounds” a little ‘pricey’.

    No it’s not, it is dirt cheap to make. Look on Amazon for the cost of beeswax, it is extremely inexpensive, and coconut oil and olive oil are next to nothing to buy, and lavender and lemon are some of the least expensive essential oils you could possibly buy. Even the vitamin E is not prohibitively

    If you are in an environment where you will need to use it regularly, then it will be a vastly safer thing to use than all the comparatively expensive industrial chemical gunk they sell to people, as that artificial chemical gunk would certainly produce all kinds of health problems in the long run.

    Lavender oil can make you feel a little off colour for a few hours if you apply 10 drops neat to your skin, which I did a couple of days ago, and will not be repeating, but I do not think such weak dilutions as given for the preparation of this mixture, which looks excellent, would be responsible for significant numbers of people suffering any really serious allergies that are worth mentioning.

    Beeswax is absolutely fantastic for fungal problems for instance, and the industrial alternative would be horrendous. Animals often get fungal problems, and this will make an ideal dressing, possibly even with the addition of zinc oxide.

    A long standing problem of several years, unresolved by any other method, of a fungal infection in a pet dog’s ears, that I know of personally, which caused him much distress, and very frequent scratching of the ears, was resolved completely using a mixture of beeswax and zinc oxide just for a couple of weeks, without any further occurrence in years since.

    Olive oil is a very nice skin conditioner, but my personal choice would be coconut oil as the base, virgin cold-pressed coconut oil if it’s in the budget. Coconut oil itself is antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial.
