Makes around 2 ounces (60ml) of salve with around 300mg per ounce. To adjust the amount of salve you make, hover over the "60ml" in the servings box below. You'll see a slider pop up. Move the slider to the left to adjust the recipe size down, or to the right to increase the amount you make.
Weigh out the beeswax and the jojoba oil in a double boiler insert.
Heat the two ingredients over a double boiler until the wax melts, and stir them together well. (While you could melt the wax with both oils, I prefer to add the more delicate hemp seed oil after the wax has already melted to reduce the time I'm heating that oil.)
Add in the hemp seed oil, and then gently heat the ingredients together again, if needed, while stirring, until they have all come together evenly.
Add in the CBD oil and mix again thoroughly. If you need to, you can slightly heat the mixture to incorporate the CBD oil, but try not to overheat.
Remove the insert from the heat source and allow it to cool for a moment. The remaining ingredients are all heat sensitive, so you'll want to add them as the mixture cools, but not when it's so solid that you won't be able to easily pour the salve into your storage container.
Add in the desired essential oils and vitamin E. These are all optional ingredients, but the vitamin E is an antioxidant that can help extend the shelf life of your product, and the essential oils can add a pleasant scent and may add other anti-inflammatory and/or other beneficial properties.
Mix quickly yet thoroughly, and then pour the mixture into your storage container. I used an amber colored 60ml glass jar.
Allow the mixture to completely cool before using it.
This recipe makes a salve with around 300mg of CBD per ounce of oil. If you are using another brand CBD oil, you'll have to calculate how much CBD oil to use to get a similar dosage.
Remember that if you want to try out Purium's CBD oil at $50 off (or any other Purium products order of $75 or more), click on one of the links to their websites (the CBD oil is on a separate website) and use the code: keephealthywithtracy (I recommend copying and pasting the code to avoid any issues.) This code will get you either $50 off or 25% off- whichever is more!Here's an example of a double boiler insert.
