Another recipe I want to share with you from Andrea’s "The Heart of Aromatherapy" book is German Chamomile and Lavender Skin Care Salve. You might remember that last year I shared the Calendula Healing Hand Salve, which I love! I grow lots of calendula (marigold) flowers in my garden, and then add them to my salads, make fresh tea, and dry the rest. However, it might be challenging for some of you to find calendula.
I tried this new recipe for German Chamomile and Lavender Skin Care Salve last week.
It is fantastic, and I’m planning on making lots for summer to give away as gifts. It is a serious healing skin salve and much easier to make than the Calendula salve. It also smells great!
The blend can reduce inflammation, pain, swelling, and itching, all while helping to clear away germs and support the skin’s healing process.
Soothe everyone’s pain and anxiety with a single essential oil salve!
German Chamomile and Lavender Skin Care Salve
- You’ll need four 1-oz (30 ml) salve tins to make this.
- 1 oz (28 g) beeswax (Cera alba)
- 3 oz (90 ml) jojoba (Simmondsia chinensis)
- 4 drops German Chamomile (Matricaria recutita)
- 5 drops Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum)
- 7 drops Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia)
- 3 drops Thyme ct. linalol (Thymus vulgarus linalol)
- 11 drops Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
Set up the “Stovetop Melting Method” by putting a Pyrex measuring cup into a soup pot that is ¼ full of gently boiling water. Put the beeswax in the Pyrex and melt. Add the jojoba and melt.
Remove the blend from heat and add the essential oils, stirring gently with a glass stirring rod or the handle of a stainless steel spoon. Pour the blend into four 1-oz (30 ml) salve tins.
The essential oils in this blend are so good at skin care!
Try this salve for small cuts, scrapes, bruises, bug bites, stings, and even small burns you might get if you touch the edge of your pot while cooking.
The essential oil drop count is low enough for kids and for people with sensitive skin.
