Get Savvy Making A DIY Organic Herbal Salve for Upper Respiratory Issues and For All Those Scrapes, Bites, and Pain
Do you need something to soothe an upper respiratory passageway, but want to do it naturally? Do you ever get bug bites, dog bites, bee stings, or other injuries and want to stay clear of medicated fillers?
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:
1. Put beeswax and oil in a double boiler on low heat until the wax melts. Stir consistently.
2. Remove from the stovetop and add essential oils.
3. Right away pour the mixture into your glass jars. Place lids on lightly so oils can work into salve but yet allowing for cooling.
Wonderful for those achy nights trying to sleep.
If you want a stronger menthol smell to your salve, add 1 tsp of organic Menthol Chrystals. You will add this with your oils step while the mixture is still hot.
Ouchy Salve…Or no more tears!
Infuse these Herbs: Follow Infusing directions https://homesteadranchblog.com/blog/calendula-garden-salve-diy/
My Favorite Herbs to Infuse:
*Calendula Flower (easy to grow)
Comfrey Root or Leaf
*Yarrow (natural fever reducer)
*St. John’s Wort
** If you don’t want to use all of these, pick the * ones for the most drawn-out and soothing properties. Plus these really should be in your collection as “go too’s” for immune-boosting herbs and strength. Once you have your infused oil follow next steps:
1. In a pan on your stovetop, melt beeswax into herbal infused oil.
2. Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients and stir well
3. Pour into mason jars allow to cool with a loose lid.
** Other essential oils I added to mine to help with burns and bites are Lavender, Relieve Me,
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 are much less, PLUS no chemicals are on my body or my family!
Hope you find success in trying these and they work for you!
