Healing Salve Recipe
¼ cup beeswax
½ cup coconut oil
½ cup oil; Some options: olive oil, avocado oil, sweet almond, apricot kernel, sunflower seed
~ 20 drops essential oil (optional).
Optional: infuse carrier oils with herbs and/or saps.
Options for herbs: lavender flowers, rose petals, arnica, calendula, chamomile, marshmallow root. This will require letting the oil heat on low in the double boiler with herbs for approximately 6 hours. After the herbs or saps have sufficiently infused into the oil, you will need cheesecloth and a fine mesh sieve to remove the herbs or sap from the oil.
- Melt ingredients and sufficiently mix in a double boiler setup.
- Pour into containers of your choice. Either metal or glass will work here.
- Cover containers once they have cooled to room temperature.
- Store in a cool, dry location and use within 1 year of concocting.
