Ingredients

  • 1 cup (175 ml) of calendula infused oil infuse your own, link above, or purchase
  • 1 ounce (28 g) beeswax or more for a harder more solid salve
  • 1 half-pint / 230 ml mason jar or other container

Instructions

  1. If using oil you infused yourself, strain the herbs out of the oil pressing as much as you can out of the plant matter. so you don’t lose any of the precious oil.
  2. Add the infused oil and the beeswax to a double boiler or water bath and allow the wax to melt over low heat. It is important to keep the heat as low as possible to avoid burning off any of the beneficial properties of the calendula, so be patient.
  3. Once the beeswax is completely melted, pour the mix into a jar or container and allow to harden. Once solid you are ready to use it.
  4. Store in a cool dark place for up to 2 years (depending on oil shelf life).
