Today I made Calendula Salve.

Here are a few links about Calendula, If you did not know about it already.

Beeswax

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.
