Directions

Step 1
Mix all ingredients together. This makes a very large amount so reduce the portion if desired.
Step 2
To make a salve, you must first make an herbal oil. This is the crockpot method: Place herbs in a jar 1/3 or 1/2 full. You can use any size jar, depending on how much salve you wish to make.
Step 3
Fill the jar up with olive oil, coconut oil, or sweet almond oil. {I normally use olive oil.} Leave a 2 inch head-space.
Step 4
Put a lid on the jar. Place a towel on the bottom of a crockpot, put jars in crockpot and fill the crockpot with water up to 1 inch below the top of the jars. Turn crockpot on low heat for 3 days. The oil and herbs need to be hot to release the properties, but not too hot. Water will evaporate so add more water as often as needed to keep the level at one or 2 inches below the top of the jar.
Step 5
After 3 days, strain the herbs from the oil through white cotton material or cheesecloth, or a fine strainer. Strain as much oil as you can and allow the herbs and oil to cool enough to handle. This allows you to squeeze as much oil out as possible with your hands! You now have an herbal oil that you can use if you prefer to use an oil.
Step 6
To make it into a salve, place 2 cups of the herbal oil into a pan. Add 1/4 cup of beeswax. Turn the burner on very low heat and slowly heat the oil until the beeswax melts.
Step 7
Once the beeswax is melted, pour in 1 tablespoon of vitamin E oil to preserve the salve for 2-5 years.
Step 8
Transfer the liquid salve into a container with a spout to make it easier to pour from. It’s important to pour the salve into containers before it starts to cool. All that beeswax makes it solidify in a hurry!
