INTUITIVE SALVE MAKING AND GIFTING

Salve is a healing concoction blended through warmth, applied to the body to nourish and heal. It is absorbed through the porous boundary of the skin and travels to where it is needed. Salve honors the plant as primary healer. It is given and received.

Some salve ingredients:

  • Beeswax

  • Extra virgin coconut oil

  • Olive oil

  • Cocoa butter

  • Shea butter

  • Calendula

  • Lavender

  • Rosemary

  • Vanilla

  • Cinnamon

  • Cardamom

  • Scotch Pine

  • Lemon

  • Vegetable glycerine

Heat oils and melt solids in them (i.e. beeswax, cocoa butter). Different ratios create different consistencies. Play/experiment with ingredients to find the salve that is needed
