This is my all-time favorite salve and perfect to keep the desert skin looking and feeling great. I was first introduced to it by my grandmother who always kept it on hand for us grand children’s “boo boo’s”
Infuse organic olive oil with calendula, following one of the recipes of previous blog on infused oils.
For the salve you will need:
8 oz calendula infused oil
1 oz beeswax
10-20 drops essential oil of choice (comfrey would be complementary)
glass jars or tin containers.
Place the herbal infuse oil and wax together over a double boiler, and gently warm over low heat until the wax melts. Remove from heat and add the essential oil. Quickly pour into prepared tins or glass jars and allow to cool completely.
Store the salve in a cool location and it will last for several months.
