Body & Soul: Infused Oils and Salves

Mother Nature’s Healing with Infused Oils and Salves


| April/May 2003


Healing or moisturizing salves and creams are a wonderful addition to your basket of tools, and they make wonderful gifts. Start by infusing an oil with a specific herb or an herbal blend (see instructions below). You can use this oil directly, or you can make it into a salve or cream. By stabilizing the oil with beeswax while making the salve, you increase the shelf life of the oil.

Salves are a gentle way to introduce someone to herbs. Some people are hesitant to eat or drink something new, but are fine with applying a small amount of salve to their skin.
