Natural Healing First Aid Salve


  • 2 tablespoons beeswax pastilles 
  • 3 tablespoons unrefined virgin coconut oil 
  • 1 tablespoon shea butter  
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey  
  • 1 teaspoon pure vitamin E oil  
  • 10 drops tea tree essential oil  
  • 10 drops frankincense essential oil 
  • 15 drops lavender essential oil  


  1. In a medium glass mixing bowl carefully sitting over a small/medium saucepan filled halfway with water (double boiler method). Over medium/med-high heat, melt beeswax, coconut oil, shea butter, honey, and vitamin E oil. Stir often, ensuring that every pellet has melted; this can take up to 15 mins. Remove from heat. 
  1. Whisk mixture while adding in essential oils. 
  1. Immediately pour into a glass jar or container for storage as the outer layers of the salve will begin to harden. To speed up the firming process, place the salve in the fridge. Otherwise, leaving it in an area 68 degrees or below and dark will firm it up over a few hours. Product can be used without hardening if needed. 
  1. Use a Q-tip or wooden stick/depressor to apply a small amount of salve onto clean wound, 2-3 x/day. 

Pro tip: As soon as you are finished with the bowl/whisk, wash with hot water. Beeswax gets difficult to clean the more it hardens. 

*For best results, gently cleanse the wound with witch hazel first.
