DIY Chickweed Salve Recipe
This soothing salve features chickweed for sore joints and a variety of skin complaints. I also added some lavender to help calm and clarify damaged skin.
double boiler OR glass bowl and pot
glass measuring cup
metal tins or glass jars
dried chickweed herb
or coconut oil
grated or chopped
lavender essential oil
In the top of a double boiler or a heat safe glass bowl combine the chickweed and oil.
Place the bowl on top of a pot filled halfway with water, or the double boiler if using. Gently simmer the water on low heat for 3 hours, refilling the water as necessary.
Strain the herb out and pour the filtered oil into a glass measuring cup. Top it off with a little more oil if needed to get to 1 cup.
Add the beeswax and oil mixture back to the clean double boiler or glass bowl. Refill the bottom pot with water and stir frequently until the wax is completely dissolved.
Turn off the heat, add the essential oil if using, and immediately pour the salve into the containers.
