Simple salve recipe that you can change to meet your needs. If you want a softer consistency then increase the oil ratio and decrease the wax ratio. Vice versa if you are looking for a firmer consistency. See notes for tips and recommendations.
⭐️ If using candelilla wax it is generally recommended you use half of what is called for with beeswax. This is because candelilla wax is much harder than beeswax. For this recipe I would say use between .5 oz and .7 oz of candelilla wax as opposed to the 1 oz used for beeswax.
⭐️ Essential oils are a great addition for both medicinal properties and just overall scent and well being. I recently made a salve with only ylang ylang essential oil and I use it before bed because it’s soothing. If you are looking to make a soothing salve based on scents and not so much herbal infusions you can add up to 50 drops of essential oils for this recipe.
