HOW TO PREPARE

1. For the infused olive oil, fill a dry quart mason jar with dried plantain leaves and the olive oil.  Tightly seal.
Place the jar in a crock pot with a layer of towel at the bottom; fill it with water reaching half the jar.  Set it to warm for two days.
2.  To make the ointment, pour beeswax and strained oil in a pan over low heat.  Stir and remove when melted.  Add the vitamin E oil and the peppermint oil and stir.  Transfer to a dry mason jar and let stand for a day to harden. Use when needed.
