I have been making medicine from the plantain plant. My last batch I used olive oil,coconut oil and lard. Diffrent mixes. A friend brought me a bucket of tupelo honey wax? It's got what appears to be honey and honey combs? It kinda looks like fish scales in oil.... It feels like oil not sticky like honey. I guess I am suppose to be able to thicken the salve with it. Can anyone tell me what I should be doing with it? The fun of staring at it has worn off.

It sounds like honey being sold with some of the comb in. Have you tasted it to see if it tastes sweet?

Tupelo is supposed to be super sweet, and possibly toxic because of absinthe? type chems?

get a small hydralic jack, a 5 gal bucket paint strainer liner, that bucket, and a couple clean peices of wood.

dump honey thru strainer, mount jack and blocks sideways above bucket. put whole contrraption above rubbermaid bin to cut down on mess. press rest of honey out of wax.

put strainer in freezer for 15 min. peel out wax. mix with olive oil to thin under low heat, or hot sun. use as you would your other oils. but will be thicker. dont use on kids, in case of hullucinations.

Yea... No. Really? It can cause hallucinations? I think I'll just add more coconut oil...But, thanks though for the help. I'll be giving it to a friend of mine . I'll tell her what you said.
