First that I've seen; a make it yourself salve kit. This includes (almost)
everything you need to make an 4-6 ounce jar of salve, in your own home,
without breaking the bank.
When I first wanted to make a calendula salve for radiation burns pain as a
result of radiotherapy for breast cancer, I knew I wanted to make it myself. I
wanted to know what was in it. I looked into what it would cost to make it my
own small jar. I had to buy larger-than-I-needed quantities of calendula,
beeswax, Vitamin E capsules, shea butter, containers, cheesecloth, etc. I had
the olive oil and the calendula plants, but that was about it. Still, I had to
get rid of that burn and pain. I bought it all, and didn't eat for a week (just
Surely there had to be a better way?
I have put together a kit that will make one batch of calendula salve. This
includes the dried calendula petals for making the oil, to the beeswax and shea
butter and Vitamin E for making the salve, all with an anchor hocking half pint
glass jar and lid. You supply the oil and the elbow grease. You will know
exactly what went into what you put on your body.
I send out all the instruction so you don't have to muck through 207 websites
to find out what to do with everything. One stop shopping.
Included in the kit is everything you see to make about a half a cup of salve:
1 Cup Dried Calendula, grown on my property and never sprayed
One ounce tin of organic cosmetic grade beeswax
Half ounce tin of shea butter
2 Vitamin E capsules
Cheesecloth (enough to strain the oil)
Wooden stick for stirring
Two two-ounce tins for finished product
One bottle dropper (color may vary)
Things you need:
Oil of your choice. Most people have olive oil on hand, but you could use
sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, avocado oil, etc.
Crock pot (not required, but handy)
Water :) (just keeping it real)
Essential Oils of Your Choice if you'd like
Calendula Salve is topically used to heal burns, swelling, and bruises. I've
used it on everything from muscle pain as a result of chemotherapy, radiation
burns and surgical scars.
If you have a reaction, stop using it. (But you know all this stuff - I'm just
supposed to say it.)
