Remember when I made the beautiful Magical Plant Infused Oil? Well, here is one thing I have used it for! A beautiful magical skin salve! I also made little anointing oil bottles with the left over oil. It’s such a gorgeous oil!
And I try to make everything have a sense of ‘magic’ to it!
Here is the recipe and what you will need.
Liquid measuring cup
¾ cup of calendula oil - I made my own! It’s so LOVELY!
¼ cup coconut oil
6 teaspoons of beeswax
1/2 teaspoon of arrowroot
1 teaspoon vitamin E
15-18 drops of lavender essential oil
Add water to the bottom pot of your double boiler, and then pour your calendula oil into the top pot and place above.
Make sure that the oil has non-direct and even heat to prevent burning.
Bring your double boiler to a low heat and add in your beeswax, and then add in coconut oil.
Once everything has melted, add your lavender essential oil & vitamin E drops.
Stir the mixture, and then quickly turn off your burner.
Now you can put this mixture into a liquid measuring cup to make pouring your final product easy.
Slowly pour into each tin, and allow the salves to cool.
Touch each tin and repeat these words…"In the divine name of the Goddess who breathes life into us all, I consecrate and charge this salve as a magical tool for healing. Blessed be!"
When you use this salve on the problem area you can say a little chant like this, "Today I shall use this magical salve, healthy and beautiful skin, I shall have. All my skin worries will go away, and my skin will be healthy and clear on this day!"
You can also use this salve on chapped lips and dry cracked skin. It’s especially good for those with eczema, psoriasis and diaper rash.
Calendula is known to be used in love spells, luck, clearing, protection, aid in psychic dreams and psychic abilities and is associated with the sun.
Enjoy and feel free to ask any questions you may have!
