* No salve? On low heat, melt grated beeswax OR candelilla wax to make 1/3 cup. Stir in 2/3 cup Olive, Sweet Almond OR Grapeseed oil
~ EO = Essential Oil
Got that salve all melted in the pot? And you've done that freezer test, right, by taking a spoonful of salve and putting that spoon on a plate, putting that plate in the freezer for 5 minutes and then noting that it's the right texture (and if not, adding in more oil to the pot if too hard and more wax to the pot if too runny?). Great!
Now simply add in the EOs to the pot, then pour into clean glass jars (plastic is less ideal but OK too) or metal tins. Let cool, put on lids, label, and store in a cool place.
To use: take some salve and massage into the affected area(s).
Just like This recipe for sore feet and muscles, when you're making a salve, it's a great idea to customize it for different health issues.
When it comes to cellulite, creams and salves can help, however diet (good fats), exercise (such as rebounding), massage (including lymphatic drainage) and herbs (e.g. diuretics or those that drain dampness) all play important roles.
