Measure the coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil, and beeswax into a heatproof glass jar or measuring cup. Set in a pan of water on a low simmer until completely melted. You can help things along by giving it a quick stir from time to time with a knife. This may take some time, up to 30 minutes.
When everything is completely melted, remove from heat.
Carefully pour the warm oil into ointment jars or small mason jars, leaving some headroom at the top. Set aside to firm up. Depending on the temperature of your home, this could take up to 12 hours.
Yield: 2 Cups.
Notes 1. I like to use 4-ounce mason jars for storing my base salve although plastic ointment jars or other sized jars are perfectly fine.2. For those of you that grate your own beeswax, I weighed the beeswax pellets (also called pastilles). 5 tablespoons weighed in at 1.6 ounces.3. Although I use organic extra virgin olive oil in my salves, you can also substitute pure olive which is more budget-friendly. Costco has a great product in this regard. I have also substituted avocado oil which is known for its anti-aging qualities and feels like silk when applied to the skin.4. If you allergic to coconut oil, a decent substitute is carnauba wax.For more information, visit https://strategiclivingblog.com/diy-base-carrier-salve-for-eos/
