2 cups calendula flower
1 cup comfrey leaf
1 cup chamomile flower
1 cup lavender flower
4 cups Sweet Almond Oil (Olive Oil works well too.)
1/4 to 1/3 grated beeswax
4 drips of Lavender oil
4 drips of Vitamin E Oil
The first thing you must do is infuse the oil with the flowers. You may buy the flowers/herbs at a local health/natural food store. You may also buy these online. I recommend visiting LocalHarvest to find a herb provider in your area.
To infuse, add the flowers/herbs to the Almond oil in a glass canning jar. Make sure cover is fitting tightly and then place the jar in a warm and/or sunny spot for 2-3 weeks.
After the required time, strain the oil through some cleesecloth. Make sure you squeeze out all the oil.
Using a double boiler, warm the oil for an hour on a low simmer then strain again if needed.
Add the beeswax and keep warming until the beeswax is melted. I get my beeswax and honey from Tahuya River Apiaries They are GREAT.
To make sure this will harden, transfer 2 tabespoons of the mix into a plastic container and pop in the freezer. Check the container and see if the mix has hardened. If it has not, you may want to add more beeswax. If the mix is rock-hard you can add more oil to soften it up.
Add the vitamin E and Lavendar oils once you have the desired consistency and then transfer the mix into jars or tins as you like.
