1 cup organic olive oil
4 tablespoons beeswax pastilles
1/2 teaspoon vitamin e oil (optional)
12 drops each of the following:
Lavender essential oil
Lemon essential oil
Melaleuca essential oil
Four - 4 oz glass mason jars
For convenience and easy pouring, use a glass Pyrex measuring bowl with a spout and handle for melting coconut and olive oils, set it inside a deep saucepan with 3 inches hot water. On low heat, slowly heat the coconut oil, olive oil and beeswax. Melt slowly, be careful not to let any water splash into the oils, this could cause mold issues. Stir occasionally to keep the beeswax melting in.
When the coconut oil, olive oil and beeswax have melted completely, add vitamin e oil (if using) and stir gently. Stir in essential oils.
Fill 1/4 inch from the top of each jar, cover with a paper towel and let sit at least 6 hours until solid. Seal snugly with lid.
Shelf life of All Purpose Healing Salve is approximately 4 to 6 months without vitamin e oil added (preservative). With vitamin e, approximately 6 to 8 months.
Remember, coconut oil will melt at 76 degrees, store in a dark, cool place for best results.
