Dad bought some "Salve-ation" for me (Shea Butter and Fennel), and I was inspired to make a similar but superior product to use for cuts, burns, scrapes, muscle aches, chapped or dry skin, acne, udder congestion and mastitis. The following recipe is for HUMANS and ANIMALS. If it's good enough for us, you might as well use it on your animals too.
This is the second batch I have made. I added mango butter, sweet almond oil, and coconut oil to this one so that it would help chapped skin as well as be healing.
Over the course of a year or two gather your ingredients. This way, the cost doesn't overwhelm you. :o)
Infuse comfrey leaves in olive oil or castor oil - I set mine in a sunny window for about 4 weeks. (Note that that link says not to do it for more than 2 weeks. I added Grapefruit Seed Extract to mine as a preservative.) But, you can heat it over low heat instead and vastly speed up the process.
Strain your comfrey leaves out of the olive/castor oil.
Add several heaping Tablespoons of beeswax and about 1/2 cup of Mango butter to the pot and heat over low heat until it's melted in.
Adding the comfrey root powder.
Pour it into sterile jars. Do not put the lids on until it has cooled.
Then, to test the thickness of the cooled mixture, just drop a tiny drop on a cold plate. Give it a minute to cool and then see if it is thick enough for your liking. If not, add more beeswax. (How's that for scientific?) I'm not giving exact measurements because I did not use exact measurements!

Teresa has suggested I name it "Mother's Touch Healing Salve" or something along those lines. I like that idea because it implies that it's not only for mothers to use on their children, but good for Udder Kinds of Mothers too! Or for Other Mother's Udders. Kris suggested I name it "Salve-anella" but if I expect to sell any of it, I better not! Sounds too much like salmonella. :o)
