10 Ways to Use All Purpose Healing Salve & Recipe


If I had to choose only one skin care product out of the billions and billions of products I've tried over the years, this All Purpose Healing Salve would be it!

I've shared this recipe on a prior blog post, DIY Skin Care for Gardeners.  But since then, more and more people have used it and shared HOW they used it!  I'm pretty grateful for how this salve has improved the lives of both people and animals.



All Purpose Healing Salve Recipe:

1/2  Cup Coconut Oil
1/2  Cup Olive Oil
2  T. Beeswax Pastilles
20  drops doTERRA Lavender
10  drops doTERRA Lemon
10  drops doTERRA Melaleuca

Coconut oil is a natural moisturizer as well as antibacterial.  Olive oil has lots of anti-oxidants, including Hydroxytyrosol as well as anti-inflammatory properties.
Lavender soothes and heals, Lemon cleanses and disinfects while Melaleuca is antibacterial and antifungal!


Melt the coconut, olive oil and beeswax in a warm bath, stirring with a knife every few minutes until melted.




Add the essential oils. 

Stir, then pour into glass jars of your choice and let cool.

Put a paper towel over the jars while cooling and wait to cover with lids until completely cooled down.

Suggestions from experience:  Use small jars so you can keep several around the house and have travel sizes handy.

Here's a list of ways that All Purpose Healing Balm has been used...with great success I might add :)

1.  Crazy good hand moisturizer!  
2.  Amazing on dry, cracked heels and crusty elbows.
3.  All round moisturizer for dry climes.  I use it as a body   moisturizer and even on my face, sparingly!
4.  Soothes and heals chapped lips or any chappy place.
5.  Soothes welts, burns and sunburn!
6.  Great for diaper rash.
7.  Keep your dogs in mind!  My son has healed his bulldogs sunburned noses with this.
8.  Antiseptic properties make it great for cuts and scrapes!
9.  Wonderful for elderly folks and their thin, fragile skin.
10. Great for scaly scalp!

Notes:  It's super easy to double the recipe if you're making gifts!  Great gift to give, by the way.  Purchase some lip balm pots or tins and fill with salve to keep in your purse or backpack.  It's easiest to do after the salve has cooled, otherwise you're trying to fill a tiny container with hot oil...messy!!
