St. John’s Wort Salve

Making my first salve today. 😀
It shall consist of organic beeswax, St. John’s Wort and sunflower oil.

“The quickest method for making herbal salve combines the infusion and salve-mixing steps into one. Combine your herbs and oil to cover in a saucepan. Simmer for about half an hour (don’t overheat). Add melted beeswax (about 1/4 cup per cup of oil) to the oil. Stir, cool slightly, and strain through cheesecloth. Add essential oils and other ingredients, if desired. Mix well, pour into containers, and let set.”
