Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens) is an evergreen tree that can grow up to 6 meters (19 feet) tall. Its greenish and rather modest flowers, which bloom in May-June, are highly sought after by bees. It prefers sunny places and highly nutrient hummus-rich soils. Boxwood has been used in European natural medicine since medieval times and can be harvested in this sense all year long. Its leaves and bark are especially used to make medicines, especially for skin rashes of all kinds. Now let’s see how to make boxwood salve for skin problems, following a very old recipe.

How to Make Boxwood Salve

To make this very simple salve you need only two ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon of boxwood leaf juice
  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil

Combine the freshly made boxwood leaf juice (you can use a mortar to make it) with olive oil. Apply the boxwood salve with a light touch, around the rash 1-2 times a day. Know that all skin rashes are caused by a toxin or pathogen that has overburdened the liver, and it’s a sign that your liver needs help. Thus, reduce all fats to a minimum, avoid eggs, dairy, pork, gluten, farmed fish, MSG, GMOs (corn, soy, canola oil), junk food, natural flavors, and citric acid, and enjoy as many ripe fruit, leafy greens, and vegetables as you can. The herbal teas that help support the liver are dandelion root, milk thistle, burdock root, lemon balm, and licorice root.

Hildegard van Bingen’s Boxwood Uses

According to famous medieval nun Hildegard van Bingen: “The boxwood is a “warm” tree that symbolizes generosity. People with skin problems (rash, scales, lesions, scabies) can shred and juice the bark and leaves of boxwood, mix the sap with a bit of licorice root powder, and warm them in wine. Drink the warm wine several times a day. It relieves the pain and makes the “poison” disappear from the diseased skin so that it does not enter the body.”
