We've had to disable the website template for the blog as it interferes with the text display and causes bits of it to disappear completely.

It's a bit rough and unvarnished looking, but hey ho...:)

Snapdragon flowers are astringent and can be infused in sweet almond oil to make a soothing salve for bruises, chafed and irritated skin.


To make snapdragon oil, fill a screw-top glass jar with fresh snapdragon flowers. Top up with sweet almond oil and replace the lid. Place on a sunny windowsill and leave for one month, shaking once each day. Strain the infused oil through muslin or cheesecloth and pour into a clean, dark glass bottle. Store in a cool, dark place.


Snapdragon (whole plant) can be made into an ointment for skin eruptions, sores and ulcers. Chop up the whole plant finely then cook in coconut oil until crisp. Strain and pour into a clean glass jar.
