Healing Salve Recipe

Healing Salve: 

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. 

  1. Melt ingredients and sufficiently mix in a double boiler setup.
  2. Pour into containers of your choice. Either metal or glass will work here. 
  3. Cover containers once they have cooled to room temperature. 
  4. Store in a cool, dry location and use within 1 year of concocting.
