*UPDATE: I have had a lot of people interested in BUYING the salve already made. For those interested in buying this, I am selling it for around $35.00 a jar. A little goes a long way. Cost of ingredients is not cheap, nor is the cost of oils… so I had to factor all of that into the cost as well as the time to make it. If you are interested in buying this already made e-mail me at info[at]andrea-wood.com… I make this as I get orders… so the processing time for an order is about a week. I have been making this for many since this post went up… and the testimonies I get are so encouraging to hear. Here is ONE I clipped from my e-mail and another HERE. Thank you all for the amazing feedback. I am glad this recipe has helped so many…
The recipe is here for any one to use and make themselves though. Just offering it already made for those who don’t have the oils and want it sooner than later.
Travis over the last YEAR has been battling what we believe to be Athletes foot… He has tried over the course of that year to treat it with over the counter creams geared towards this issue. They offered little relief and never fixed the problem.
The other day almost 2 weeks ago, Travis told me to look at his foot… and I was just shocked at how gross it had gotten… So I told him I would look up in my Oil Copal’s book, to see if I could create a blend for him to try and use, to treat his foot.
Below is the recipe I made him, as well as a side/side photo of Travis’ foot before the use of my salve… and not even a week later. He said for the 1st time in almost a year, his foot doesnt itch. Lets just say, he was so thankful the oils worked. My husband has been skeptical of essential oils since I started getting into them. However, he has now become a believer :) – The photos of his feet btw we took with our iphones. So the color is slightly cooler in the before. I did not edit or alter these photos in any way. This is straight from my iphone – no filters.
10g beeswax or jojoba wax
20g coconut oil
45g shea butter
1 tsp EVOO or Almond Oil
3 drops Gentle Healer EO (first aid is a cheaper alternative)
3 drops lemon EO
3 drops thyme EO
6 drops oregano EO
6 drops melaleuca EO
6 drops lavender EO
In a double Boiler add in your beeswax, coconut oil and shea butter. (or just get two pots – one large at the bottom, one small on top of the large – fill the bottom one with water, bring that to a boil…and wah-lah you have a DIY double boiler hehe)
Once that is melted (be sure not to over heat it, you do not want your oils boiling…) take the pot off the burner.
Stir in your EVOO or Almond Oil.
Then add in your essential oils.
Pour your mixture into a glass jar and you are done.
Once it hardens it will look like a thick balm… you then would just use your hand (fingers) to get out what you need. It should kinda feel like butter… and when your hands (being warm) touch it, it will melt slowly. Just rub it into your feet twice daily until symptoms pass.
Hope this works for you all! Also if you do not have all the above oils, try making this with the oils you do have. You don’t have to have them all to attempt something like this. This is just what I used and it worked… so I am sticking with it :)
