I have been reading a lot about wonderful properties of kalanchoe pinnata and daigremontiana. It took me a while to find and buy them, a little bit longer while to grow them to the size where can be use for ointments.
I am preparing two different types of ointments, one based on goose fat for deeper penetration in the skin and second, plant based, vitamin E oil, Shea butter and avocado butter. All ingredients are organic, unrefined.
First and main rule, plant cannot touch metal.
I use porcelain knifes, wooden chopping board and marble mortal and pestle. Hair net, face mask and gloves are important to make sure ointment is not contaminated.
I add base in the glass bowl to make it melt, add washed and chopped kalanchoe, make it heat for an hour over the water bath.
After an hour I drain the liquid through the cloth to containers for ointment. I have put them aside to let it cool before I’ll put lids on.
After its cooled I keep it in the fridge, just one on goose fat. Plant based I keep in room temperature so it’s in perfect spreadable state.
Left side goose fat based, right plant based.
I use it as a Super moisturizer, like for cracked skin. I used this ointment for scar after surgery. Also, on peeling skin, which don’t want to heal.
THIS IS NOT A MEDICAL ADVISE OF ANY TYPE. YOU ARE USING THIS OINTMENT ON YOUR OWN RESPONSIBILITY.
