Why CBD Salve is highly beneficial with many uses:
CBD salves are an excellent way to experience the benefits of CBD. They work very well for those looking to increase skin health and balance.
CBD salve is a topical ointment infused with cannabidiol. CBD salves are made using coconut oil and beeswax. There may be many other beneficial ingredients, like essential oils, terpenes, and natural ingredients.
Note: Wash hands and the area the salve will be applied to. Your skin is in contact with a lot of germs and bacteria, and this can decrease the effectiveness of salve.
Fact: Refined Coconut oil is the perfect for making CBD Salve.
Fact: Coconut oil is an excellent carrier for many cannabis infused foods and self-care products. (Fatty acids are the molecular devices responsible for carrying the CBD compound).
Chef’s notes: Always use organic steamed refined coconut oil.
What you will need to Make CBD Salve:
Glass Measuring Cup
Tins or glass containers for storage

Bees wax- 4 Table spoons
Refined Shea butter-2 Table spoons
Tapioca Starch-2 Table spoons
Essential oils- 10 drops Eucalyptus and 12 drops Lavender

Chef’s Notes: Be sure to use 100% pure essential oils and not fragrance oils.
How to Make CBD Salve
1. Bring the water to a simmer in the double boiler.
2. Put the CBD coconut oil into the double boiler
3. Add the beeswax to the coconut oil and stir often.
4. As soon as the beeswax is dissolved, add the Shea butter and stir until completely dissolved.
5. Add the Tapioca Starch
6. Add essential oils
6. Pour CBD salve into tins or containers.
Storage Tips: Salve can be stored at room temperature for months. Keep from direct sunlight or heat.
Fact: After the heating process, the infused coconut oil is then simply mixed with melted-down wax to create the topical CBD salve. Other essential oils, like lavender and Eucalyptus
Pro Tips: Adding Tapioca and whipping the salve will help keep the salve from becoming greasy when applied to the skin.
Chef’s Notes: Unrefined Shea Butter will also work but has a distinct scent. Unrefined coconut oil will also have a heavy coconut scent.
Final Note: Use a THC/CBD calculator and enter your numbers. Keep tract of these numbers and always label your final product so you are aware of how much you are taking per dose.
CBD salves are so easy to use. Apply a small amount of salve on the skin, massage it in, and that’s it. This salve has the smell of Lavender and Eucalyptus with the benefits of CBD; it also applies to the skin without that greasy feel.
