Cannabis Healing Salves

Cannabis Salves

(from your pantry)

Hey everyone, I stocked my pantry this week to show you how to make cannabis healing salves.   It’s sooo pretty  🙂

final product

The ingredients used in these salves could be purchased at your local health food store.

But if your having a hard time finding them, I’ve included links to the products…

Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Grape Seed Oil

Organic Argan Oil

Vitamin E oil

Organic Hemp Oil

100% Pure, Raw and Unfiltered Honey

Organic Beeswax

Essential Oil Variety Set

If you can’t go to a collective or don’t have the time to infuse your own cannabis oils, using hemp oil still allows you to reap the health benefits of cannabis, just without the THC

The illegal portion of the plant…hahaha.

When I’m making skin care salves, hemp oil is one of the first ingredients in all my favorite skin recipes, because of its anti-inflammatory benefits.

Cannabis oils are very beneficial for the skin, helping fight skin cancer, psoriasis, eczema, inflammation, and acne. You heard me…it helps cure acne.

Here’s a snap shot of my ingredients:

Ingredients

In fact, this week I used these salves during a sudden breakout…what timing just when I thought I could hit the beach.

After using the skin salve specifically for my face. I noticed a HUGE difference in size and redness.

Honestly I would show you a picture, but I’m super shy and self-conscious about it.  The slave has also improved the tone and evenness of my skin…bonus 🙂

If you have skin like mine (oily and prone to severe acne of all kinds), then DO NOT use coconut oil on your face.  Bad things will happen and will take forever to get rid of.

But I admit, I do like using coconut oil on my legs after shaving, so I’ve included 2 recipes that are facial friendly and one that I use on the body.

facial salve

 

The first recipe reduces redness, evens skin tone and reduces acne.

  • ¼ hemp oil
  • 10 drops lavender and tea tree essential oils
  • 1tbs Vitamin E oil
  • 2 tbs bees wax

 

 

The second does the same as the first but also helps with swelling, dryness, itching, inflammation, stiffness, etc.

  • ¼ cup Grapeseed oil
  • 3tbs hemp oil
  • 2tbs Vitamin E oil
  • 2tbs Honey
  • 1 tbs argan oil
  • 10 drops lavender and eucalyptus
  • 3tbs beeswax

Do not get eucaplyptus oil in your eyes, has great anti-bacterial properties but it will BURN.

The third recipe is for body use, has similar healing properties to the salves above, but has the added benefits of coconut oil as a moisturizer.

  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • 3tbs hemp oil
  • 3tbs olive oil
  • 2 tbs Vitamin E oil
  • 2tbs honey
  • 1 tbs argan oil
  • 10 drops of lavender, lemon (the essential oils of your choice)
  • 3-4 tbs bees wax

This salve is good to use after shaving or a day at the beach.

Here;s how I put the salves together:

Melt all ingredients one at a time saving the essential oils for last.

melt and mix

Wait till you have turned the heat off and the liquid is cooling before adding the essential oils.

Do not boil the ingredients, try not to let them simmer either.  Simply melt and mix.

 

 

 

After allowing the liquid to cool (but not solidify) pour into a glass container and let harden.

 

pour into container

Note: If you decide to adjust ingredients stick to oil bases.

Other ingredients, such as Aloe Vera which is water based, will not mix and end up stuck at the bottom of your container.
