Pain Relieving Salve

Published by admin on 29-Sep-2017 21:00 (1475 reads)

When you have a sore back or other pain that is related to your muscles or bones then why not try to make your own healthy alternative. Here is a recipe that is great.

Pain Relieving Salve


1 cup organic olive or castor oil
1 oz of desired dried herb blend (see below)
1/2 oz beeswax
1/4 tsp vitamin E
1/4-1/2 tsp of desired essential oil blend (see below)
Salve tins or jars


Heat-Infused Method
To make your salve you will need a large glass measuring bowl and a pot (or use a double boiler).
Fill pot halfway with water and place glass measuring bowl inside the pot.
Turn heat on medium low.
Add oil and dry herbs to glass bowl and simmer gently for 3 hours.
Strain oil through a cheesecloth into a clean bowl and return to pot.
Add the beeswax and let melt.
To test for the right consistency, place a pea-sized amount on wax paper and place in freezer or refrigerator for a few minutes. Add more beeswax if not firm enough or add more oil if too firm.
Remove from heat and add vitamin E and essential oils.
Mix well
Pour into tins or jars.
Let cool and lid.
To use: Rub a small amount into affected area as needed for pain.
Alternative Method:
Make an infused oil by placing the herbs and oil in a jar and let it sit for 4-6 weeks. Strain and make salve per above instructions.
