Hello I’m Chef Sky from Infuzed Cookin. Welcome to my Colorado kitchen.
Today we are going to talk about- Pain Relief Salve with RSO/CBD Infused Coconut Oil
This is an easy way to make pain relief salve. Find out why salve has a slow absorption rate, what you will need from your kitchen, and how to successfully make pain relief salve.
Thank you and let’s get infused.
Why Salve Has a Slow Absorption Rate
Most choose salves for the texture. Because of this texture salve stays on the skin for a longer period of time with a slow absorption rate into the skin.
With a slow absorption rate this provides pain relief for a longer period of time than topicals with thinner textures.
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: CBD salve consists of a balanced composition of beewax, CBD an RSO, along with other types of aromatic essential oils including lavender and eucalyptus essential oil.
Chef’s notes: Always use organic steamed refined coconut oil and organic essential oils.
What you will need to Make CBD Salve:
Glass Measuring Cup
Tins or glass containers for storage
Chef’s Notes: You can make your own double boiler using a pan and a glass bowl.
Infused CBD refined Coconut oil- 1 cup
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 along with the RSO and stir well.
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.
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.
Thank you and Happy Infusing……………
