This is a wonderful salve that can be custom made to whatever you need by adding and changing various Essential Oils. It’s easy, it’s healthy and it has no harmful chemicals.
A very little-dab-a-do-ya for this one! Enjoy.
1 Cup Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (Tropical Traditions Gold Label makes the silkiest salve!)
1 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4 heaping Tablespoons of Beeswax Pastilles
(always use the best ingredients you can find for best results. be wary of essential oils sold in healthfood shops, especially if the prices are too good to be true.)
Slowly melt the coconut oil, olive oil and beeswax in a mason jar, or glass container, in a warm bath, stirring with a knife (I used a wooden skewer) every few minutes until melted. Don’t over heat or the oil will burn…nice medium low heat, slow melt. While waiting for the melt, line up five 4 oz. jam jars with your EOs nearby.
Now your ready to fill each jar with the melted oil/was mixture stopping a half inch from the rim. Let cool until the salve hardens. Top with a paper towel while cooling. Secure lid tightly after the salve hardens. Label the jars as to what blend, or “naked” (no EOs).
If you want to make a special blend decide which blends you want to create and add the essential oils to each jar before filling, continuing as above to finish.
Frackincense, Lavender and Cypress combined create an effective anti-aging blend. Your face and body will benefit from the regenerative properties as well as the extra moisturizing properties of coconut and olive oil.
Add 12 drops of each to one 4 oz. jar.
L.L.P. Allergy Blend
Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint, an all natural anti-histamine with far reaching benefits! Beneficial for allergies that manifest through skin outbreaks or chronic itching. L.L.P. Salve con compliment your daily L.L.P. protocol along with the added attributes of skin softening, soothing and the antibacterial properties of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint.
Why not add the L.L.P. blend to your salve in additional to your other applications, allowing even more of the healing effects of the EOs.
Add 30 drops to one 4 oz. jar.
Aches & Pain Blend (capal tunnel, headaches, joint pain from arthritis)
Birch EO, the most powerful essential oil for pain relief with aspirin like qualities is available from Spark Naturals as this month’s Oil of the Month (great value). You have the ability to make your own powerful IcyHot—like pain reliever is a reality with Birch. It’s hard to come by and in high emand for a reason—natural pain relief. Combine Birch for pain, White Fir for inflammation and Frankincese to further enhance the properties of all three EOs.
Add 30 drops of Birch, 10 drops of Frankincense, 10 drops White Fir.
All Purpose Salves are simple to make, and very versatile, along with being potent! Make your own feeling safe about what you’re putting on and in your body.
I have made all these various blends, along with many of the “regular” all-purpose healing salves. They work great! My dry skin is silkie soft and healing nicely.
You can also buy smaller jars and tins to use as gifts or trial samples. Just adjust your drops accordingly to the size container.
