Having everything ready to go ahead of time makes this much easier. Essential oils open and glass containers ready for the mixture with lids off.
4+ cups, so much Salve!
*I use whatever dried herbs I had on hand: lavender, sage, juniper, pine, globemallow.
**I often use Frankincense, Lemon, Rosemary, Lavender, Ylang Ylang or Melaleuca. Any combination will do
Using a double boiler (or a pot that can sit on top of another pot with boiling water) add in coconut oil (draining herbs with a fine metal strainer if you infused your oil), then adding in beeswax, Vitamin E, cocoa butter wafers, and shea butter, continue stirring as they slowly melt in. Add essential oils.
Have plenty of small glass containers ready and open. I find it easiest to poor the mixture into a glass measuring cup then into the smaller containers, but you will need to move quickly as the mixture will start to harden right away.
Let mixer cool and Enjoy!
Always use organic when possible
