Basic Black Salve

SalveThis is the salve no home should be without. This is an old fashioned salve everyone used to have in the house. It works to absorb toxins. The common use for it is to put a glob of it on a bee sting, slivers or a cut. It gets the toxins out!

Basic Black Salve
2 Tablespoons Bee's Wax  
3 Tablespoons Cocoa Butter
3 Tablespoons Shea Butter
2 Tablespoons Jojoba Oil
1 Tablespoon Vitamin E
1 Tablespoon Honey Powder
2 Tablespoons Activated Charcoal Powder
3 Tablespoons Rhassoul Clay
Optional: Herbal Extracts, Essential Oils - depending on what you're using the salve for  
8 1/2 ounce clear jars


Put Bees wax, cocoa butter and shea butter in a small pot and heat. You want to keep it at 180 degree for at least 15 minutes. This is easier than it sounds. Just heat it on medium high until it is melted. Turn off the burner and let it sit. It should still be over 180 in 15 minutes.
Second Step:  
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until well blended. The easy place to buy Activated Charcoal is in your local health food store or herbal medicine store. You'll probably have to open a lot of capsules, but it is the stuff you need for this.
Third Step:  
Feel free to add any relevant herbal extracts to the formula just before you spoon it in. You want to make sure it is very cooled off before adding any extracts, essential oils, or fragrance.  
Fourth Step:  
Once it is smooth, spoon into 1/2 ounce jars. Give a jar to everyone you know. They will thank you for it!
