Natural Lavender Salve


Day 8 #witchwithme - RECIPE

Lavender Salve.

First, make Lavender Oil:
Fill a jar halfway with dried Lavender. Cover with carrier oil, cap, leave in cool, dark place (shaking occasionally) for 4-6 weeks. Strain.

To make the Salve you will need:
🌿 100g/3.5oz Lavender Oil
🌿 15g/0.5oz Beeswax - or half as much Candelilla Wax for a Vegan alternative
🌿 A heatproof tin or jar
🌿 Small tins or jars
🌿 Lavender Essential Oil (optional)

Method:
🌿 Put the wax into the jar/can
🌿 Put the jar/can into a saucepan containing an inch or two of water
🌿 Place on a medium heat until wax has melted
🌿 Mix in the Lavender Oil
🌿 Add in a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil (optional)
🌿 Pour into small tins or jars and leave for a few hours to harden.

Will last approximately 9 months to a year. Use to soothe bug bites/stings, on temples for headache relief, on wrists and neck for perfume, and to reduce sunburn healing time.
