MARSHMALLOW & CLOVER CREAM
Both marshmallow root and red clover flowers are soothing to burns, bites, rashes and inflammation. Mix 1 cup fresh red clover blossoms with 1 cup cocoa butter. Cover and leave in cool spot for 2 weeks. Soak 30g chopped marshmallow root in 250ml cold water for 24 hours. Strain. Place cocoa butter in double boiler; heat just enough to remove blossoms. Pour cocoa butter in large saucepan and, using a whisk, add 1 tablespoon marshmallow water a time, until consistency is right. Add 1 tablespoon sweet almond oil. Pour into pot.
