I have been making this salve for a few seasons now! I love it on my face and as a belly oi to resist stretch marks. (I'm super pregnant now, and still don't have any!) However, I didn't pick enough buds this spring to keep me supplied in buds til my due date. So imagine my excitement when I found them in Yellowstone National Park (before the big road flooding!) they hadn't budded out yet, since it's colder there. So no I have all I need. YAY! My little 6-graders helped me gather the buds, and I added beeswax to the hot infusion, along with rose and lavender and myrrh to make my belly rub.
