Do you want to save yourself money in the long run by making it yourself and of course using natural ingredients in the process? Well…here ya go!
Around the ranch I have gotten bitten by more animals, insects, and yes Stinging Nettles while harvesting them, that I need to grab my salves to save the day.

For Upper Respiratory
Basic Vapor Rub:
8 oz of Almond Oil (carrier oil)
3/4 oz Beeswax Pellets (the more wax you use the harder the consistency)
25 Drops of Eucalyptus essential oil
10 drops of Peppermint essential oil
Glass Mason Jars
1. Put beeswax and oil in a double boiler on low heat until wax melts. Stir consistently.
2. Remove from stove top and add essential oils.
3. Right away pour mixture into your glass jars. Place lids on lightly so oils can work into salve but yet allowing for cooling.
Wonderful for those achey nights trying to sleep.
If you want a more stronger menthol smell to your salve, add 1 tsp of organic Menthol Chrystals. You will add this with your oils step while mixture is still hot.

Love how salves work! I can’t claim anything, but with all the wounds we face around the ranch these salves have worked! Healing and bruising is much less, PLUS no chemicals are on my body or my family!
Hope you find success in trying these and they work for you!
