1/2 oz. beeswax ( you can replace this with all candelilla wax if you'd
like, I was not happy with the consistency so I added some beeswax)
1 oz. cocoa butter
.5 oz. menthol crystals
10 drops peppermint
10 drops eucalyptus
10 drops naouli
Melt all ingredients together except for the menthol and essential oils.
Remove from heat, stir in menthol crystals, re-heat until crystals are
melted if needed. Remove from heat and let cool before stirring in the
essential oils or they will evaporate, pour into containers.
If you don't have experience in using menthol crystals, they are quite
powerful, so do wear a mask when using them and caution, you don't want
to have your head right over the bowl when mixing this item.

These recipes require you to use parts rather than a specific volume of each herb. This technique is known as the Simplers' Method. Using this method allows you to easily adapt the recipe. If you want a small amount of salve you can choose one tablespoon as your part, if you want a large amount of salve you might choose 1/2 - 1 cup as your part. The amount of oil needed, is, enough to completely cover the herbs, plus an inch of oil above the level of the herbs.
THE BASIC RECIPE FOR SALVES
Prepare a medicinal oil following one of the methods as previously instructed on the Making Your Own Preparations page.
Strain the oil. To each cup of oil, add 1/4 cup of beeswax. Heat the oil and the beeswax together over low heat until the beeswax is completely melted. Check for proper firmness by placing a small amount on a plate and placing in the freezer for a minute. Test the firmness and adjust if necessary. If you want a harder salve, add more beeswax. If you want a softer salve, add more oil. Now add any essential oils or *extras*.
When you are satisfied with the consistency, remove the mixture from the heat and pour immediately into clean jars or tins. Let cool before placing the covers on.
