Chickweed is a pretty unassuming plant. It can hide in the garden beneath other plants without drawing any attention to itself. I was looking for some a few weeks ago and managed to find some beneath some closely planted tomato plants. I enjoy nibbling on it fresh but was wanting to bring some home to make some chickweed oil.
I gathered some up and tucked it in my "potions" pot with some olive oil. It simmered away while I made the plum butter and for a while longer. Throughout the summer I've done this with comfrey, calendula and plantain so now we've got all the skin oils that I like to have on hand.
Strained and bottled it makes a simple healing oil for skin ailments. Usually I make all my oils into salves by adding a bit of beeswax but his year I've noticed that, having not made time to get to that next step, we are using the oils quite nicely as they are. So...sometimes not having the time to do something can show you that there is no need to do that thing. ;-)
