  • Muscle Salve or Massage Oil

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

     

    WHAT YOU'LL NEED


    HOW TO MAKE IT...

    1. Stuff a mason jar 1/3 - 1/2 full with salve mix.
    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 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 warm water as needed.
    5. As the herbs' properties release into 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 an herbal infused oil. It is good for 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 bees wax until wax is all melted.
    8. Add a drop of vitamin E oil for every ounce of oil. This is a natural preservative.
    9. While salve is still hot, pour into your container (wide mouth jar, tin can, etc.).
    10. Let sit over night or until salve is hard.
    11. 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.
