If you have some evergreens in your area you can make this blue spruce balm. Sounds like pretty good stuff for what little it takes to make it. I bet the smell is fantastic. I think I may make some to use as foot cream.
This recipe for blue spruce balm is from Wholistic Woman and she shows us how to make it.
She tells us ” The Verdict: I love this stuff! Not only does it smell great, but it has really helped my chapped hands (winter is brutal on skin here in Michigan). It’s a bit greasy on the initial application but absorbs fairly quickly. It is supposed to be good for chest congestion, sore muscles, and uplift one’s spirits. My homemade blue spruce balm definitely makes me happy, although that might be from the satisfaction of making something I never thought I could make (at the fraction of the cost of fancy organic lotion, plus with eco friendly ingredients), and remembering my dad helping me cut the blue spruce branches.”
