There are a lot of natural healing salve recipes out there and they all tout different medicinal healing properties. I have been making my own salves for quite some time, plucking the best parts of each recipe I’ve made or stumbled across. The end result is this super healing salve and I’m going to teach you to make it.
This all natural healing salve works wonders on cuts, scrapes, minor burns, bug bites, eczema, and psoriasis. There are probably many other skin problems that it heals too so if you make it and have a testimonial, please share it in the comments below!!
I started by making an herbal infusion with GrapeSeed Oil and the following herbs:
- Organic Plantain Leaf
- Goldenseal Root
- Organic Comfrey Leaf
- Pine Resin
- Organic Calendula Flowers
- Organic St. John’s Wort

Once the herbs were properly infused in the oil I strained it twice through cheesecloth to get rid of all the sediments. You can see from the picture below how dark the oil is at this stage. Then I added:
- 3 Tablespoons raw Honey
- 3.25 oz Beeswax (melted)
- .5 oz Vitamin E oil
- 1 oz Neem Oil
- Up to 1 oz Tea Tree oil
I feel that the Neem Oil in this salve is the star healer. All of the ingredients have their own benefits but Neem Oil is truly underrated in main stream skin care.
Once mixed, I poured it into these jars. These exact jars are also available in smaller sizes and different colors, the ones I used (pictured below) are the Frosted White. I searched high and low for the right container because I didn’t want a tin that might rust if the slightest bit of moisture gets in. I was impressed with these when they arrived and will definitely continue to use them for my Herbal Healing Salve.
The salve will harden as it cools and more or less beeswax can be used if you like a different hardness to your salve. These are firm enough to stay solid at room temperature and soften up to an almost neosporin-like consistency with the heat of your finger.
Tried it? Let me know what you think!
