Echinacea is best known as a great defense against colds & flu as it can kick start immunity. However it can also reduce inflammation and it can be used to treat skin problems and to relieve the discomfort of insect stings and bites. This recipe is for making a natural sting & bite salve, and is very easy to make when you need it with two simple ingredients. However why not make a whole jar and store it for when you need it, as part of your natural first aid kit.
