Most of you know that I have been enjoying Essential Oils these days. It all started out as a fluke, really, but I have grown to love and respect these oils. They truly are a force to be reckoned with, and they have changed the way I think about healing and the provision we have been given in nature for our bodies. I am more and more amazed every day at the power of using what is out there to take care of ourselves rather than run to synthetically produced medications filled with side-effects.
The salve is my very favorite. It’s a moisturizer, and anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, it soothes, heals, cleanses, disinfects, gets rid of skin irritations, and it simply feels wonderful. But it’s so much more than a slave: I rub in into my cuticles, I use it on chapped lips, as a moisturizer for my very dry feet, on sunburns, and it is a most wonderful night cream.After simply experiencing the oils for what they are, I started to have fun with experimenting. Thus far, I have played with making my own deodorant, shampoo, seasonal allergy remedy and healing salve. It’s fun, challenging and rewarding.
There are many recipes out there, and here is mine. You will be so shocked at how easy it is.
You will need:
I put the coconut oil, olive oil and beeswax pastilles in a jar surrounded by water in a pot on the stove. I heated the water and let it all melt, stirring every so often until completely melted. It took a little while.
Once melted, I removed the jar from the hot water bath, added the essential oils to it, then poured the mixture into small containers.
I am sure you can use small jelly jars as well.
I let it all cool and sealed my containers. That’s it!
You are welcome.
