Herbal Salve Recipes – Chapped Hands

Sharing is caring!

4 tablespoons olive or almond oil

4 tablespoons beeswax

3 teaspoons cocoa butter

2 teaspoon lanolin

1 teaspoon coconut oil

15 drops lavender essential oil

Combine the olive or almond oil, beeswax, cocoa butter and lanolin.

Heat this mixture in the top of a double boiler, stirring constantly.

When the mixture is melted, remove the top pan from the heat and add the coconut oil and lavender essential oil. Stir the mixture briskly.

It will begin to thicken as it cools. Once the salve is thick enough to suit you, pour it into the glass jars that were prepared ahead of time.

Leave the jar sit overnight, uncovered so the salve can cool.

The next day, put a lid on the jar, label it with the name of the salve, the ingredients in the salve and the date.

This can be stored at room temperature for up to a year. If the salve begins to smell rancid, toss it and make a new batch.
