Re: [SCA-Herbalist] Burn Ointment
- Greetings,I have missed some of the posts regarding burn ointemt. If this is what you are still speaking about, I strongly urge you to stay away from all lards and oils for burn cream. These ingredients will purpetuate the burn and will make it more severe. Anything you can imagine cooking with, ie: oil, butter, lard, will do this.May I suggest creating an herbal pulpuce instead, something like a very thick paste with a tea base. Your herbs are appropriate but please, please don't use oil based products on burns.Thank you,Fand

If not, you could simply use those herbs in any good ointment recipe.
The period ointment recipe bases that I have seen are lard (16th century
sources) and a mixture of beeswax, olive oil, honey and tallow (late
13th-century source). Let me know if you want the exact sources, and I'll
dig up the references.
