How to Make a Salve

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.


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. ๐Ÿ™‚

What are your favorite salves to make?
