The Finished Homemade BF&C Ointment

Home made BFC Ointment    I thought I would share the finished product of my homemade BFC Ointment that I made a few weeks ago. I'll put the directions below so that it is all together in one post if you want to give it a try. These jars are 42 ounces each. The one on the left I put in the fridge to solidify and the one on the right is the liquid form. Coconut oil is white when it is hard and clear when it is liquid, so you can see the difference with the herbs infused into it solid and liquid. This amount will last my husband and I three years or so. We use it liberally on our joints daily. I use it on my face, neck and upper chest at night as a beauty regime. We'll use it on bruises and other problem areas, overworked muscles or anywhere we are feeling pain. I make my own because I am allergic to the beeswax that is in ointments. BFC stands for Bone, Flesh and Cartilage - the most amazing wonderful ointment that heals about anything that might happen. 

    You get so much more for your money when you make it yourself. The 84 ounces of ointment that I made would be equal to 21 of the 4 oz. jars of Complete Tissue and Bone Ointment, that in 2016 retail for $23.75, and we sell them for $15.44 each. Retail for 21 bottles is $498.75 and our discounted price is $324.24. That is a lot of money and I wouldn't recommend buying that many because it would go rancid before you could use that much! A bag of BF&C cut costs $28.44 and add in the cost of the oil and you can see that you are way under $100.00 to make your own ointment adding in what you pay for your oil. If you are worried about using that much, get together with a few friends and split it. It is worth it!

Making BFand C OIntment    It is easy to make your own BFC Ointment  All you need is  Dr. Christopher's cut BFC formula and the oil of your choice. I like to use Coconut oil because it has its own medicinal value and has a long shelf life. The 16 oz. bag of cut BF&C fills a little less than half of this gallon bottle. Sorry, it is hard to see in the photo - but the rule of thumb is to fill the bottle 1/3 to 1/2 with herbs and then fill the rest of the bottle with oil. I was able to use about 3 1/2 quarts of coconut oil and then I put it into my dehydrator at 105 degrees. I stir it about three times a day and keep it heated for about 48 hours. You can go
making BF&C Ointmentanywhere from 12 to 48 hours.  I do the maximum to extract everything I can out of the herbs. If I lived in a warm climate I would just leave it outside for a few days, but since we are in Utah and the nights are below 76 degrees I find it best to use my dehydrator.  I strained it after it cooled a bit and bottled it into the two jars. I keep it in my basement which is cool.  Coconut has a long shelf life and I have never had a batch of my home-made BFC ointment go rancid, so I highly recommend using Coconut oil!
