MAKING MASSAGE OIL OR 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 1/3 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 a 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.
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 bees wax. You need approximately 2 oz. of grated beeswax for 8 to 9 oz. of infused oil.
8. On low heat, warm oil and bees wax until wax is all melted.
9. Add a drop of vitamin E 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!!!
Tips:
~ 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.

GREAT SALVE!!!
by Deb on Jun 24, 2014

I really enjoy herbs and all the things you can do with them. This salve is some of the best....and is fun to make as well. I would not want to be without it. I carry a little tin of it, along with band-aids in my purse for the boo boos, bites, etc. that life can bring. My husband has used it at night for a rough foot callous that came from a lawn mower accident and it helped with that as well. Thanks for all the great information on this web site. I've learned a lot from "Shoshanna's Kitchen." God Bless each one!

Everyone wants it
by Tibby on Apr 5, 2014

I made 2 batches of the green salve 1 organic olive oil and 1 organic almond oil. It started off with just my household using it. Then my mother. We started to realize it worked on everything! Bee sting yes! Boo boos yes! Dry hands yes! Next thing know my coworkers are using it. I'm using in my care taking.
I now have my daughters best friend coming up to me asking for the green stuff for his boo boos.
I have stopped using all of the unhealthy creams on my face and started using this. It feels great. Wrinkles starting disappear. Acne at an all time low! I'm in love with this and so is anyone that has tried it.

mixing green salve with arnica
by Brittany on Mar 18, 2014

Hi! I love your green salve and I have made it several times. I was thinking about adding arnica in with it. What do you think about this? If the green salve is more cuts, scrapes, and bites, then the arnica could help with pain?

    Re: mixing green salve with arnica
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 20, 2014

    Hello,
    Arnica would be fine to add, however, keep in mind, Arnica is not supposed to be put on broken or cut skin. Thanks!

Dry/Cracked Fingers
by Crystal on Mar 12, 2014

Can this salve be used on dry and cracked hands/fingers? Thanks

    Re: Dry/Cracked Fingers
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 17, 2014

    Hello,
    It sure can! Enjoy!

Love this!
by Dianna on Jan 24, 2014

I've use similar salves in the past so when my husband bought me this for Christmas I was excited. Finally finished my first batch last night. My family loves it. I made it with really good coconut oil and the smell is to die for! My girls even asked me to put it on there 'owies' . No more triple antibiotic ointment for us. Thank you for making this so easy!

Love Love Love
by Tricia on Dec 24, 2013

Thank you for doing the hard work of putting together these amazing healing herbs. I just made my first batch of salve and a 2nd batch of creamy salve by adding aloe vera (my favorite). These have made the perfect Christmas gifts to my good friends and family. I LOVE it!!

Combining blends to make my own
by Carla on Dec 1, 2013

Hi! I have fibromyalgia, osteo arthritis, & have not always treated my body well (work hard, play hard, but little rest). I'm thinking of combining this blend with the arthritis blend, to help combat all of this, in one salve. I'm thinking to first infuse one blend, then, in the same oil, infuse the other, to avoid thinning out the effects of each herb. Thoughts?

    Re: Combining blends to make my own
    by Bulk Herb Store on Dec 9, 2013

    Hello,
    That sounds fine, however if you don't really see the benefits you were looking for I would recommend trying each salve separately and not mixed as that would be a more concentrated form. Thanks!

Works wonders!
by Anonymous on Oct 18, 2013

I have made and used the salve on cold sore (oral herpes) and it worked like magic. Is it ok to leave the herb in the oil for future use or it has to be strained immediately? Could it be colonized by bacteria or fungus?

    Re: Works wonders!
    by Bulk Herb Store on Oct 22, 2013

    It is better to strain the herbs out and add a natural preserver such as vitamin E or grapefruit seed extract. Your oil could very likely go bad if it were to just sit with the herbs. Thanks!

This stuff works wonders!
by Kari on Sep 28, 2013

I made a huge batch of this stuff last year and we use out on EVERYTHING! Anytime my kids have a boo-boo they always ask for the "green stuff". :-) This morning this stuff blew my mind! My 2 year old stomped in a huge fire ant pile and had ants all over his feet and one of his legs biting him everywhere. Add soon as we got them all off I say him down and slathered this stuff all over his quickly dwelling and blisters feet and leg. Within a minute his screaming had stopped and he said it wasn't hurting anymore. A bit later, I checked him again and to my surprise all the blisters were practically gone. Only one or two of the biggest ones were barely visible. I love herbs! I've had unbelievers mock at my silly green junk, but I have a happy two year old to prove that this stuff works wonders! Thank you for all the herbs and mixtures you make available for us! Forever an herb girl!

Comfrey use on wounds
by Anonymous on Aug 21, 2013

Hello~
I'm wondering about the use of comfrey in this salve. I read where comfrey is not recommended for internal use and yet this salve is recommended for use on wounds (which is usually open or cut skin). Can you clarify this for me, please? Thanks in advance!

    Re: Comfrey use on wounds
    by Bulk Herb Store on Aug 21, 2013

    Hello,
    To clarify, when it says not to take internally, it means not to eat or drink. Comfrey is hard on your digestive system.

Sore nipples
by Amy on Aug 19, 2013

I was wondering if this is safe to use for healing sore nursing nipples?

    Re: Sore nipples
    by Bulk Herb Store on Aug 20, 2013

    Yes! You can use this for soreness. Just wipe the salve off before you start nursing! Thanks.

lighter color salve?
by Anonymous on Aug 10, 2013

Hi I bought your salve mix and a 1oz jar of the eden salve. I infused my oil like the directions said for 3 days and then i made the salve and compared it to the eden salve and the salve I made came out a lighter shade than the eden's salve. Maybe like a shade or two lighter? I wanted to know if I did something wrong if if variations like this is normal. I used the beeswax from your company as well. Thank you for your time.

    Re: lighter color salve?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Aug 12, 2013

    Hello,
    There will be a variation. They are different salves with different ingredients. But yes, it's completely normal! Thanks!

Works miracles on bites!
by Kristy on Aug 4, 2013

Mosquitos have been horrible this year and with 4 boys there are all kinds of bites. I put a little of the salve on the bite, it stops the itch and by the next day the bite disappears. I'm going to have to order more to give as gifts because my family and friends love it!!

pregnancy
by mommy on Mar 25, 2013

I was wondering if I can use this. I'm almost 3 months pregnant and just started to get some egzema which i never had. I have made and used some before pregnancy. It works great on every scar bruise and you name it! I know it will help me with my egzema, I'm just not sure if i can/should use it? Is it safe? Thank You for your time on answering my question. God bless you.

    Re: pregnancy
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 26, 2013

    It is perfectly fine to use it externally!

Green Salve
by Cinder on Mar 10, 2013

I love this salve it works so well on everything. My grankiddos call it boo boo cream, takes tears ways. My hubby skin is sensitive and we use it on all bites,bumps and rashes. His work friends liked it so I made him some too! My dad has diabetes and when his skin develops any rash perfect! Thanks

Definitely Amazing!
by Erica Gonzalez on Dec 24, 2012

We have been VERY impressed with this salve mix. I originally bought it for my daughter's psoriasis problem, which it helped soooo much! We have used it on rashes and stings and even on a dog bite that my son had. It works so well, but the most amazing healing was the healing of my brother's arm. He sustained an injury that left a nasty knot on this forearm and very little ability to use it at all. However, after applying the salve for 10 days, the lump was gone and he was doing push-ups. May I add that he suffered with this injury for almost a year before applying the salve. Thank you, BHS!

AMAZING and so easy to make
by Nanci Smith on Dec 12, 2012

I so appreciate all I've learned on this website and the YouTube Videos. I never would have thought I'd have the confidence to make my own salve, but I did it this week!
I made some extra for a friend to give as a gift. I used those cute little 8 oz glass Mason jars. I made a nice label and called it "Lord's Delight Healing Salve" from Psalm 35:27 (NIV) "The LORD be exalted, who delights in the well-being of his servant."
It's way better than Burt's Bees ResQ Cream, and comparable to beeyoutiful's Miracle Salve, but so much more economical to make yourself.

Green Salve
by Pat Sannino on Dec 9, 2012

I and my daughter have been using this salve for the last 4 years. My granddaughter has NEVER had a diaper rash and any skin irritations that last. The salve is fantastic. I now give it to new moms as a baby shower gift and everyone has loved it.

Great for Animals too!
by Paige on Oct 5, 2012

I ordered this mix for my family to use but decided to also try it on our dog. Our poor dog has had the worst summer with allergies. We've been to the vet for meds and tried every kind of shampoo they have but he has just suffered with itchy irritated skin.
I made the infused oil and keep it in the fridge to harden and it soothes his skin like nothing else! He stops itching and his skin is no longer red and inflamed. I'm so glad I found this. Thanks

Great
by Ginny on Jul 27, 2012

I use this for all types of things. Its great for burn's takes the pain away and does not leave a scar on the area, also great for cat or dog scratch's and insect bits. My neighbor got bitten by bee's and used it and all the swelling on the face went down in second's. Its great to have on hand for any thing. I make it up and give it away to all my neighbors now. The just love it.

Gres Salve
by Tracy Thomas on Jul 25, 2012

I made this salve and had my son who suffered with severe eczema on his knees, ankles and legs. He has used it for one year now and one leg is completely cleared up and the other is just about there. No more itching, redness, sores, etc that comes along with it! Greatest salve I have ever used!!!

On a second note, we just used it on a jellyfish sting and it reduced the swelling within 15 minutes of applying it!
Love it!!

Excellent for poison ivy
by Allison on Jul 5, 2012

I made green salve and added tea tree oil. My 3 year old got a REALLY bad case of poison ivy . We put the salve on three times a day. OH me oh my, it is almost gone three days later! With only one teeny tiny blisterish lesion, that only was evident for a day. Amazing!!

FANTASTIC!
by Brittany Chapman on Jun 19, 2012

Yeah!!! I just completed my "Green Salves". It was super easy to do and I am very happy with it! I can't wait to make the arthritis and muscles mix salves next!! These will make great gifts and be excellent for my own personal use. Thank you bulk herb store!!!

I LOVE this!
by Carrie Rauhe on Jun 11, 2012

I LOVE this mix! It works GREAT for mosquito bites, allergic reactions and more! It's the first thing my kids run for when they get a scrape or cut. I keep a container with me at all times. Thanks for a great mix!

Great Salve!
by Joel and Renee Pike on Jun 11, 2012

This salve has been fantastic for our family of six who live in northern Minnesota. We have lots of ticks, black flies and mosquitos here just to name a few. And when any of us gets bit, we put on this salve right away and the healing process seems to speed up and the itchiness is relieved. This salve has been nicnamed the "owie salve" and is put on any scrape, bite, burn, cut, blister you can think of. I am so thankful for this instead of the "over the counter" anti-bacterial creams. Recently I was raking up the yard and forgot to put gloves on during the process. I could feel the blisters starting to form under my sore skin. I rubbed this salve on when I got into the house and by the next day my hands were completely normal. Thank you Bulk Herb Store for creating this mix!

I purchased quite a few herbal books recommended by BHS before heading over here and many of them have been very helpful. Many of the Filipinos are fond of using herbs up here on the mountains and even grow some in their gardens. I lent a friend three herbal books- Practical Herbalism, Growing 101 Herbs That Heal and The How-To Herb Book. She was so happy to see pictures of the herbs she has in her own garden and that she can finally label each one and learn of its advantage and hopefully put it to proper use. Mountains of thanks to BHS! In Christ, Grace
