step 2:  melt the beeswax using double-boiler method

to do this:  Heat 1-2 inches of water in a saucepan over medium heat.  Bring water to a simmer.  Add heat-safe glass measuring cup with the beeswax to the saucepan.  This will gently heat and melt the beeswax.  Stir occasionally.  Be patient melting the beeswax.  Beeswax has a fairly high melting point, so melting can take 10-15 minutes.

step 5:  once completely melted, remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.

Then add essential oils.

40 drops ginger essential oil

25 drops peppermint essential oil

25 drops fennel essential oil

15 drops coriander essential oil

15 drops Roman chamomile

step 7:  clean up

Beeswax is to hard to clean with just soap & water.  So before it hardens, use paper towels to wipe out the glass bowl/measuring cup and any utensils you used to stir the mixture.  Then once you’ve wiped off as much as you can, wash as usual with soap and water.

 

step 8:  allow salve to cool completely before putting on lid.

This might take a few hours to harden all the way through.  You can put it in the refrigerator to speed this step up.

step 9 (optional):  If you use a tin container like I did, then you can decorate the lid with a little scrapbook paper and Modge Podge.

  • cut out scrapbook paper to fit the lid
  • use a foam brush to apply a little Modge Podge to the top of the lid (this acts as the glue)
  • put paper on lid, and starting from the center, use your finger to press down and smooth out any bubbles
  • then cover the top of the paper with a little more Modge Podge to seal the paper
  • let it dry
