  • Double broiler
  • 2 5-ounce containers with lids



For infused oil

  • Start a double broiler on medium heat and once it starts boiling reduce to the lowest setting.
  • Add herbs and then pour oil over them to saturate. If your coconut oil is solid, go ahead and melt it first, then add the herbs.
  • Simmer for 1 hour. Make sure the double broiler doesn't run out of water.
  • Remove from heat and let cool.
  • Strain out herbs with a fine mesh strainer.

For salve

  • Wipe out your double broiler and return to boil and then reduce heat.
  • Add beeswax and simmer until melted, stir occasionally to break up any chunks. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  • Add the infused oil and stir. If it hardens too much, return to low heat to melt again.
  • Pour into a jar and let sit until solid.
