Minnows Healing Salve

Saturday’s Minnows’ Recipe: All Purpose Healing Salve

This is one of my favorite DIY products I make with my oils, as it is very effective at soothing and assisting with healing, and it’s very versatile. From the kid’s cuts and scrapes to chapped lips and noses of cold season, we use it almost daily. Perfect for moisturizing dry skin all year long. I’m very grateful for this salve!

This recipe is made in four 4-oz jars, but you could make it in one 16 oz jar, or pour some into smaller containers like the one I used (1/2 oz plastic salve containers from AromaTools). I keep several around the house and few travel sizes handy.

Ingredients
1 Cup Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (Tropical Traditions Gold Label makes the silkiest salve!)

1 Cup Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

4 T. Beeswax Pastilles

1/2 t. vitamin e oil (optional)
To each jar add:

10 drops Lavender
10 drops Frankincense 

8 drops Lemon

6 drops Melaleuca

1/2 teaspoon Vitamin e oil (optional)


Fills {4} – 4 oz glass mason jars or small glass jars of choice.
Melt the coconut, olive oil and beeswax in a warm water bath, stirring with a knife every few minutes until melted.


This will take at least 15 min, you want a slow melt.
Add the EOs to the empty jars and pour into glass jars of your choice and let cool.
Put a paper towel over the jars while cooling and wait to cover with lids until completely cooled down. Shelf life is approximately 8 months with the vitamin e oil added.
