How to make it

  • It can be made as an oil as well to just rub on, to do this just omit the beeswax and strain well - add the essential oils last. Follow the simple salve recipe instructions below and you should have yourself a small jar or two of the salve.
  • ****************************
  • Here is a simple salve recipe - it's all about proper proportions, you will need a sensitive scale:
  • ***************************
  • 1 cup fixed oil (olive, almond, sesame, apricot kernel, sesame, or jojoba)
  • 1-2oz of dry herb(s)
  • 1 oz shaved beeswax (per 1 cup oil)
  • ************************************
  • Place the oil and herbs in a glass jar, place the jar on a baking pan and place in the oven set at 100-160 F for 3-5 hours.
  • Stir once and hour. Strain the herbs from the oil.
  • Measure the oil again, it will always be less than one cup after the herbs soak up some of the oil, add more oil, or add a mixture of desired essential oils to bring it back to on 1 cup.
  • Pour the oil into a clean jar and add the beeswax, microwave the jar till the beeswax melts, then test a dab on a jar lid to see if the salve has the right consistency. If it does, pour it into jars.
  • Sore in a cool, dry place and it should last for up to 2 years if you add a preservative like vitamin E oil or lavender or tea tree oil, or a benzoin tincture.
  • I prefer to use essential oils or vitamin E oil as many people are sensitive to the benzoin.
