One of the most amazing thing I love about my essential oils is how little oil I have to use to get the results I am looking for. One drop is usually  all I need. When I first began using them I would simply drop the oil in my hand and mix it with a carrier oil (olive oil, coconut oil, or grape seed oil.) While this method works, it is messy and many times I found I did not need all that oil and I felt like I was wasting my precious oils.

Then my sister-in-law invited my sister and I to a salve making party. We all brought different ingredients and shared our individual oils to make different salves. We had so much fun mixing our salves and experimenting with different blends. The salves where the perfect solution to my messy waste of oils. It is also a plus that now I have several salves made up that are literally at my finger tips.

I like to make up a batch of salve and leave it naked (no oils). Having the naked salves allows me to use it as a carrier oil for other oils and blends I may need. Also, if I run out of one of my blended salves, it is easy for me to melt down a naked salve and add the necessary oils to make my blended salve. It is best not to reheat salves that have essential oils already in them as this will reduce the potency of the essential oils.

Here is the recipe for naked salve which is your base for all other salves. I have also listed some of my favorite blended salve recipes. You will notice that my recipes are based on a 4 oz jar of naked salve. I typically try to add 30-40 drops per 4 oz jar (or 8-10 drops per ounce.) This is a dilution rate generally recognized as safe for healthy people with no known sensitivities. You can adjust the amount of essential oils in each recipe according to your needs.

Have fun and get creative! Find oils that you love, research them and create a blend with them

Naked Salve Recipe

1 cup Organic Coconut Oil

1 cup Olive Oil

3-4 Tablespoons Beeswax

Several 4 oz glass jars

  1. Fill a small sauce pan with 2 inches of water and place on a stove top on medium-high.
  2. Place oils and beeswax in a large glass jar and then place the jar in the sauce pan.
  3. Stir the ingredients in the jar until all the beeswax has melted. (This may take a few minutes. Be patient!)
  4. Once all the ingredients are melted down pour into the 4 oz glass jars.
  5. At this point you can either leave the jars to cool down and solidify or you can add essential oils to make salves for specific purposes.

  1. I really like making things like this. Just curious, you mention a few “blends” in the ingredients list. What brand of oils are you using that sell these blends?
