Balm of Gilead salve is anti-inflammatory, and pain relieving and traditionally used for sore joints and muscles.


  • 1/2 cup infused Balm of Gilead oil
  • 1 tablespoon (12 grams) beeswax melted


  1. Make a double boiler using a glass measuring cup.  (See the directions here)
  2. Add balm of Gilead infused oil and beeswax to the glass measuring cup.
  3. Heat until the mixture is blended and the beeswax is fully melted.  Don’t allow it to simmer though.  Keep it just warm enough to make everything liquid.

  5. Cap tightly.
  6. Label and seal.
