Salve Making Instructions

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

1. Stuff a mason jar 1/3 full with herbs.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5.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 a great massage oil!!!

6. 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.

7. On low heat, warm oil and beeswax until wax is all melted. Add a drop of vitamin E oil for every ounce of oil. This is a natural preservative.

8. While salve is still hot, pour into your container (wide mouth jar, can, etc.) and let sit over night or until salve is hard. 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.

more sleep!
by Katie on Jan 31, 2014

I made this muscle salve as a Christmas gift for my Mom who has MS. She gets muscle cramps and pain in her legs. I thought it would help ease her discomfort. She uses it at bedtime and, as it turns out, she is able to get more sleep because the salve relaxes her muscles enough for her to fall asleep much faster most nights.

I give it FIVE STARS!
by P. Stevens on Jan 28, 2011

My dd has had two heart attacks and is unable to shovel us out when it snows so itís up to me. After spending three hours shoveling 36 inches of snow, I rubbed myself down with the muscle mix and the only part that was sore was my neck and only because I forgot to apply the rub to it.
