How to Make Homemade Neosporin

Updated on August 8, 2012

The number of people that are making homemade products that normally would be purchased in a store, is growing at a dramatic pace. The reasoning for this, is in most cases one or two things; 1. People are tired of rising prices or 2. People want a natural product that is not filled with chemicals and ingredients that can actually harm you.

The recipe below is very easy to make and lasts for a long time. It also makes a fairly large quantity when you compare buying Neosporin at the store for $3 - $4 for a tiny amount. If you have kids, this recipe is great for all the cuts and scrapes that children seem to obtain on almost a daily basis !

Ingredients for Homemade Salve for Minor Scrapes and Burns

Making Homemade Neosporin

You want to combine the herbs and oils in a double boiler on low heat. Stir every so often. Next, you want to drain the oil out of the herbs. Now you want to put the strained oil back into your double broiler and combine the bees wax, stirring until melted. You want to get a sterile container and pour the oil and bees wax mixture into it. If you are adding any essential oil, now is the time to add it. Finally, you add the honey. Make sure to mix it every couple minutes until it sets, make sure the honey is thoroughly mixed into the mixture.

That's it ! This will last a year, just keep it in a dark, cool place.
