Healing skin salve with essentials oils

Healing skin salve with essentials

I love salve. I use it on every part of my body. My husband and son use it on their bodies. We slather it on after we bathe, before bed, when we get up in the morning or when we go out in the sun, rain, wind or snow.
We put salve on any part of our body that is red, sore, itchy, dry, cracked or uncomfortable. We also just rub it on to moisturize and nourish ourselves.
A little salve is like applying a Band-Aid of love. You can kiss the ‘owie’ and then tap it with a little bit of salve to make it all better. I love salve.
I know, what an image of a greased up family! Truth is, when our skin is nice and moisturized, we feel better and therefore are nicer to each other. Ha ha. No, Really!
Did you know that moisturizing the skin calms your nerves? Keep Calm and Use Salve!
You are cordially invited into the sensational world of salve making.
Salve, a source of self- empowerment that frees you from hundreds of products and gimmicks because you know just how healing salve can be.
Salve, a place where you feel connected to a remedy that you fashioned with your own heart and hands.
Salve. Wherever you go you carry the generosity of a personal medicine that can help with more than you ever imagined it could help with. You offer simple assistance in a complicated world.
Why do I love salve so much?
Is it because I have always loved plants and flowers? Is it because I was just smitten with the idea that I could make something myself that could help people? Is it because I love to experiment and mix things together?
I admit, I was the mud pie making child. We lived directly above a creek that ran swift and wide in the winter. The banks of the creek were my childhood playground. I constructed every concoction possible with mud, sand, roots and creek muck. The consistency of salve is a little like creek muck, don’t you think?
When I was introduced to the wonderful art of working with my garden to bring healing to my family, there was no turning back. I had an insatiable thirst to learn everything I could about herbal remedies.
My parents insisted that I finish college, so I did. They thought I was going to get a real job after they paid for 5 years of university. Instead I became a self-ordained fanatic salve maker. Ha ha.
Anyway, sort of the long way of saying that I hope that you enjoy this simple Healing Skin Salve recipe. It is infused with many years of comfort and healing that is now yours to share.
• 1 ounce olive oil by volume, (measured in a measuring cup)
• 1 tablespoon grated beeswax
• 8 drops lavender essential oil
How to Make:
Supplies needed:
• Olive oil
• Grated beeswax or beeswax pearls
• Double boiler or two stainless steel pots
• Measuring cup
• Spatula
• Salve container
• Label

1) Grate the beeswax into medium shredded pieces. Think of when you grate cheddar cheese, if you use the smallest holes on the grater, it just gums up the grater. Use the medium holes just like you would if you were grating cheese. You can grate the beeswax with a cheese grater or purchase the beeswax already cut into small pearls.
2) The beeswax pearls are denser than grated beeswax, so the measurements vary depending on which type of beeswax you add. I use a heaping tablespoon of grated beeswax to a scant tablespoon of beeswax pearls. Basically, my recipes are made for home grated beeswax, so just use a little less if you are going to use the already prepared beeswax pearls that can be purchased.
3) A double boiler has a top pot that fits into a bottom pot. Put water in the bottom pot; put the top pot on the pot with water in it and bring the water to a boil. (Say that five times.)
If you don’t have a double boiler, just make one up. Put water in a pot and then put another pot that fits on top of the pot with the water in it.
4) Put the beeswax in the upper pot and melt it.
5) Slowly add olive oil a little at a time until the oil and beeswax melt together.
6) Remove the pot from the heat as soon as everything is melted together. Make sure that you do not overheat the oil. The oil should never be too hot to put your finger into.
7) While mixture is still hot, pour it from the pot into a measuring cup.
8) From the measuring cup pour mixture into glass salve container.

9) After the salve begins to cool, but before it hardens, add lavender essential oil to the salve.
10) Let the salve jar sit on the counter until the salve has hardened, then put the lid on the container.
11) Take a moment to think about what you will use this salve for. Think about whom you might give it to and how it could help them.
This is called adding love and best wishes to your salve. The extra added ingredient that heals. You can’t buy that in the store.
Enjoy your Healing Skin Salve!

Comfrey & Calendula infused olive oil with beeswax plus essential oils creates this healing salve. It is said that Calendula is an antioxidant, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory with regenerating properties, thus making it a wound healer. Comfrey also relieves pain and inflammation caused by injuries or degeneration. With the addition of our Soothe thy skin essential oil blend (Patchouli, Eucalyptus, Tea tree, Lemongrass and ginger ) plus the Olive oil base which allows the herbs and oils to be absorbed deeper into the skin, making it an excellent healing salve. A definite salve for first aid kits in everyone’s home.

I love that our bodies and minds naturally heal themselves.

All that’s required is to use the right method of treatment to support the inherent healing wisdom of nature.

I’ve always trusted this natural healing life force energy within each of us. It just always made perfect sense that life would heal itself given the chance.
My herbal healing salve made with essential oils has healed numerous skin issues over the years. To date my skin has healed from more than two dozen unsightly skin tags, growths and blemishes.
The healing salve recipe I’m sharing with you is, you might say, one of my best kept secrets. I’ve never shared it with anyone else before now.
Directions for Use
I massage the area of my skin that has a skin growth or blemish with my herbal healing salve consistently (once daily) until the skin blemish or growth is completely gone.
Some of the skin blemishes I’ve treated successfully I’ve had for 10 years, or longer. These longer term growths took more time to completely heal and disappear.
Blemishes that I’ve massaged with my salve immediately upon their first appearance for several minutes daily have all disappeared within a few days to a few weeks.
Natural healing has no set time limit for achieving its results. Each blemish seems to have its own unique individual time frame for complete healing to occur.
100% Success Rate
So far every skin tag, blemish or growth I’ve treated with daily massage using my herbal healing salve has completely healed and disappeared.
I used to make custom lip balms and salves, but they didn’t sell well in the store.
I’m teaching you how to make your own DIY healing salve in a few minutes. You can refrigerate and use as needed.

I’m teaching you how to make your own DIY healing salve in a few minutes. You can refrigerate and use as needed.

100% Success Rate
So far every skin tag, blemish or growth I’ve treated with daily massage using my herbal healing salve has completely healed and disappeared.
Preparation – what you will need:
1. Light coconut oil – ¼ cup (4 Tablespoons).
2. Beeswax – 1 Tablespoon – less makes your salve softer, more gives it a more firm consistency.
3. Herbal synergy blend – 30-36 drops.
4. Shea or Cocoa butter – 1 Tablespoon.
5. Vitamin E oil – 4 drops (preservative).
• Put beeswax into light coconut oil and heat in a double boiler.
• You can also make a ‘homemade’ double boiler simply by using a Pyrex glass measuring cup inside a pan of water.
• Heat oil and beeswax mixture over low medium heat until the beeswax completely melts in the oil.
• Remove from heat source and allow the liquid ingredients of oil and beeswax to cool slightly before adding your essential oil synergy blend. Heating essential oils can render them less therapeutically effective, so wait.
• You can guesstimate or use a cooking thermometer. The temp should ideally be at 98.6º F (37º C) and below 101º F (38.3º C).
• Gently blend in your herbal synergy blend with a sterile instrument. Then, pour salve immediately into 3-one ounce containers, refrigerate and allow your herbal salve to cool and set.
Instructions for Use
Apply tiny amount of salve with your finger tip to area of your skin where you have a skin tag, blemish or growth. Then gently massage area.
Be sure to make contact with tissues beneath the skin as you massage. You want to increase circulation to the area to promote healing of tissue.
I’ve found that a daily massage with the herbal healing salve for several minutes is sufficient to promote healing of the tissue.
