Arthritis Salve Mix

Herbal Mixes: Arthritis Salve Mix

Arthritis Salve Mix

Contains: Ginger Root Echinacea Root St. John’s Wort Boswellia Serrata, Cayenne

One bag of this mix will make approximately 16-24 oz. of salve.


1. Making a salve might sound difficult, but it isn’t. The thing that takes the longest is infusing your herbs with oil. The best way for you to do this is in a crock pot on very low heat.

2. Stuff a mason jar one-third full with herbs.

3. Fill jar with oil of your choice (coconut oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil, etc.), leaving at least one inch from the top of jar. Screw lid on tight.

4. Put a wash cloth in the bottom of the crock pot. Put jar in the center of the pot (on the wash cloth). Fill the crock pot with water, one inch below top of jar.

5. Keep crock pot on low heat (oil needs to be very hot but not boiling) for 3 days. Water will evaporate out of the pot, so keep adding water as needed (NEVER pour cold water over a hot glass jar).

6. As the herbs’ properties release in the oil, the oil will have more color and smell like herb oil.

With a cheese cloth (cotton sheet or t-shirt will work too) strain herb solids out of oil. Now you have a herbal infused oil. It is good for massage oil!

7. To make the oil into a salve you need beeswax. You need approximately 2 oz. of grated beeswax for 8 to 9 oz. of infused oil.

8. On low heat, warm oil and beeswax until wax is all melted.

9. Add a drop of vitamin E oil or Grapeseed oil for every ounce of oil. This is a natural preservative.

10. While salve is still hot, pour into your container (wide mouth jar, can, etc.).

11. Let sit over night or until salve is hard.

12. Screw a lid on tight and label with name and date. Voila! You have a salve!


~ If it is too soft for you, reheat it and add a bit more beeswax. If it is too hard reheat it and add a touch more oil.

~ Salve is a thick oil that is used for, cuts, bites, burns, rashes, boils, massage, and more. Salves can keep up to five years or more.

~ Keep out of light and extreme heat.

Safe for children? Or pregnant women

To use in a salve, is this safe to use on children, or pregnant women?
Thanks for such a great site and products.

    Hello, on pregnant women it would be just fine to use, however, on small children I would personally use caution because the cayenne can have a warming effect and if gotten in the eyes will cause irritation. Thanks

The arthritis salve works wonders! I've been laid up for a couple of weeks due to a bad arthritic knee. I thought I would try making and applying the arthritis salve mix from your salve kit. Wow! I've only been using the salve for less than 2 days, but my physical therapist was amazed at how much the swelling went down and how much more movement my knee had today. So I'm ordering more and making some for gifts this holiday season. I want everyone I know to have some on hand! Thanks so much!!!! I love this stuff!!! Also, it was a lot of fun to try out making the herb infused oils in the crockpot - I felt like a mad scientist!!

I want to thank you for such an easy and informative site! I've recommended it to friends who are new to herbs as a great place to get your feet wet, as well as to people who've been using herbs for years.

I've suffered from chronic allergies my entire life. I consistently remember being allergic to the months of September, February and April/May. This year, instead of the nasal sprays, allergy shots, and OTC anti-histamines, I've used herbs to support my system. I've researched through the How to Herb Book and Practical Herbalism about allergies and have made my own capsules and natural anti-histamine tea. This is the best I've felt in years!

Thanks again, another happy customer
