Calendula Salve Recipe

Calendula salve is easy to make, but it requires advance planning because you first need to infuse the calendula flowers in oil and let them steep for at least one week.

• 1/4 cup dried calendula flowers
• 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
• 1/8 cup grated beeswax
• 40 drops lavender essential oil

1. To make the infused oil, put calendula flowers into a pint-size canning jar. Add the olive oil and stir well.

2. Cover the jar with a lid and place the jar in a sunny window.

3. When the oil turns a deep golden yellow (this generally takes one to two weeks), strain the oil through several layers of cheesecloth to remove the flowers.
