Healing Herbal Salve

Ingredients:
3 C. Oregano Oil (soak fresh oregano in carrier oil for 7 days; strain)
1/4 C. Shea butter
1.5 C. Beeswax
10 drops essential Eucalyptus oil

Directions:
1. Melt together the oil and shea butter in a double boiler.
2. Melt beeswax a separate double boiler.
3. Once the beeswax has melted, mix the two together.
4. Stir, and add Eucalyptus oil
5. Pour the mix into tin cans or small glass jars to cool.

Ingredients:

-1 1/4 C. quality olive oil
-0.3 oz. dried calendula flowers
-0.3 oz. dried chamomile flowers
-0.3 oz. dried plantain
-0.2 oz. dried St. John’s wort
-0.2 oz. dried Oregon grape root
-1-2 ounces beeswax
-1 Vitamin E capsule

Directions:

1. Weigh the dried herbs using a kitchen scale.
2. Prepare the oil infusion. You can do this one of two ways:
Cold Infusion
In a glass mason jar, cover the weighed herbs with 1 ¼ cup of oil. Stir to combine, and allow oil and herb mixture to steep for 4-6 weeks.
Hot Oil Extract
In a glass mason jar, cover the herbs with 1 ¼ cup of oil. Stir to combine. Place the glass jar in a pot on the stove, or in a crock pot, filled with a few inches of water on lowest setting (Be sure to put a towel on the bottom of the pot.). Infuse the oil and herbs for 4-8 hours, a day, or up to 3 days. Note: Watch the pot and add water as it evaporates.

3. Strain the oil and herb infusion through a cheesecloth. Squeeze to extract as much oil as possible. You need to strain at least 1 cup of herb infused oil.

4. In a saucepan over very low heat, melt beeswax together with oil.
5. When the consistency is to your liking, add Vitamin E capsule. Mix, and pour the salve into your containers.
