Today I made Calendula Salve.
Here are a few links about Calendula, If you did not know about it already.
The Ingredients that I used were:
Infused olive oil with Calendula Petals 2 small jars
I melted each of the ingredients together in amounts to my own preference.
I used more Beeswax to keep it really hard and make sure it will stay a while.
I used small amounts of Shea Butter and only a teaspoon of coconut oil for this batch.
I poured the hot oil into clean containers and let it cool down.
Here is a picture of the finished product.
I only used Petals for this batch to see if I could make a more ‘orange’ color and I am very happy that indeed it turned out a nice gold. My previous Calendula Salves I have used both the petals and the leaves, as you can see in the infusion pictures that I have a jar of leaves sitting, but the leaves do make the salve green.
