Warming Chest Salve
Recipe makes: 5 – 25ml jars and 1 – 50ml jars.
- 1/2 ounce of beeswax
- 1/2 cup of jojoba oil
- 1 tsp. honey
Place the ingredients into the top of a double boiler. Gently heat until all the beeswax has melted. Stir well with a fork or spoon. I put the honey in as it imparts a beautiful honey aroma to the salve but the honey itself will not merge into the salve mixture. Honey is water soluble. I leave it as the bottom of the pan while carefully pouring out the salve mixture.
While the beeswax is melting with the oil and honey, prepare your jars.
I first made a synergy of the following oils:
- 2.5mls Ginger
- 1ml Cardamom
- 10 drops Black pepper
- 5 drops Clove bud
- 10 drops Palmarosa
In each 25ml jar I put 20-25 drops of the synergy and for each 50ml jar 40-50 drops of the synergy.
After placing the essential oils in the jars, the salve was ready to pour. I filled each jar and placed the cap on each jar as it was done. Once I had poured all the jars, then I went back to secure the lids and shake each jar.
Let the salve harden in each jar. While this is happening its time to make labels.
Enjoy this warming chest salve by applying in the evening to chest and upper back.
