Celandine ointment is external use only, and it can treat various affections such as: as boils, warts, cuts, infected wounds, eczema, psoriasis, brown spots, herpes, impetigo, chapped skin, scabies and lupus. But its effectiveness for herpes it’s proven by my best friend. She prepared this ointment and herpes healed like magic. She didn’t have to stay with that disgusting wound at her mouth. Celandine is an ancient plant, and I remember that my great grandmother used to use it, raw, to treat wounds made knife. I never knew why she was applying a leaf on her wound saying that it will heal. But, now I see celandine’s effects, and I believe that nature give us useful resources to heal our every wound.
To prepare this celandine ointment, you need:
– 50 ml of olive oil
– 100 ml of coconut oil
– 15-20 grams of beeswax
– 80-100 grams of fresh chopped celandine
Method of preparation:
In an enamel bowl pour the oils, the chopped plant and beeswax. Stir continuously with a wooden spoon, for 15 minutes. Take of the bowl from the heat and let it cool until the next day.
The next day we have to easily heat the preparation until it melts, then stain it through cheesecloth. Keep it in dark containers, in the refrigerator for 2-3 months. Beeswax is a good preservative.
Because of the large amount of alkaloids, celandine quickly becomes highly toxic if the recommended dose is exceeded. Regardless the condition, an adult who weighs 165 pounds shouldn’t administrate more than 4 g of dried herb daily.
Exceeding the recommended dose leads to complications such as gastroenteritis, cough, breathing problems, digestive spasms, hallucinations and cardiac disorders.
Celandine preparations aren’t recommended for children under 12 years old and prohibited for pregnant women mothers who are still nursing.
