All Purpose Salve
It all started with a knife...a kitchen knife, that is! I was washing my dishes and was about to finish when the knife I was washing slipped out of my hand and hit me on the knuckle! OUCH! It split open my knuckle and had to be adhered shut. Fast forward to present day; I now have a very sensitive scar on my dominant hand that I just cannot keep out of harm’s way. I would like to speed up the healing process so I looked up scar salve recipes. Now salve seems to just be a fancy name for various carrier oils, most of which I have at my disposal. I combined all the oils I had and came up with this all-purpose salve!
2 1/2 tsp. Coconut Oil
1/2 tsp. Sweet Almond Oil
1/2 tsp. Vitamin E Oil
1 tsp. Shea Butter
1 tsp. Organic Beeswax
7 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
3 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
(Ingredients are per container)
What I love about this salve is it's endless uses! It can be used as an all over skin and lip moisturizer, it can also be used as a headache soother, muscle relaxer and for simple aromatherapy purposes.
