Gelenggang Cream


This is Gelenggang bush. Grows so wild at our farm, they have bright orange-yellow flower in December. I have find it really useful to cure skin problems like ring worm, scabies or eczema. Contains gelenggang, coconut oil and beeswax. We make it into cream like this :

Step by step:

  1. Sterile bottle/jars with boiling water.
  2. Chop gelenggang leaves into small pieces.
  3. Cook on medium heat with coconut oil until crispy (1 cup leaves to 1 cup oil). Can add lemongrass for some fragrance. See here on how to make coconut milk.
  4. Strain away the leaves.
  5. Immediately melt beeswax into the oil (1 cup oil to 1/5 cup beeswax).
  6. Bottle and let it sit until it arrives at a balm state.
  7. Cap the lid
