Here goes nothing...

I have finally procured some fresh lavender, dandelion root and chamomile at a reasonable price.  I also stopped at Akins and picked up some bee's wax and almond oil.  I am going to start by making a salve for my wonderful boyfriend, Joey.  He tends to have shoulder pain and such from when he injured it while in the Marine Corps and I found an easy recipe for a dandelion salve for muscle aches and pain.  The recipe calls for the flower as a whole and I only have the root.  I am going to do a bit more research on the plant as a whole and decide if I need to go out flower picking or if I can get started right here and right now with the root.  Wish me luck!  Will post back with progress pictures.
