If you read my post a few weeks ago when I made herbal-infused oil, you saw how very simple it was to do! Making a salve is just as easy. Today I’m turning that same herbal oil into a salve! You can use the oil as it is, but turning it into a salve is less messy to use and is more convenient to transport and throw in your purse or diaper bag.
- 2 cups of comfrey oil
- 1 oz. grated beeswax (about 1/4 cup)
- 1 T. vitamin E oil
- 15 drops of lavender essential oil
Combine all ingredients in a pan. Heat the mixture until the beeswax melts. To see if it will harden into the right consistency, put a spoonful of the oil mixture in the freezer for 5 minutes. If it comes out too thin, add more beeswax. Pour into tins or jars and allow to set. Now you have a convenient, healthy, non-toxic, effective salve to use! Making your own saves money. 🙂
