Keep this bruise salve in your first aid kit for falls, sprains, bumps, and bruises that are a normal part of an active lifestyle.  Safe for all ages.  External use only.


  • 4 ounces yarrow infused oil
  • 4 ounces arnica infused oil
  • 2 tablespoons Beeswax


  1. Make a double boiler using a glass measuring cup and a saucepan.
  2. Place the beeswax and infused oils together in the glass measuring cup. Heat the saucepan over medium heat till the beeswax melts completely.
  3. Remove from heat and pour the finished salve into two 4-ounce shallow round steel tins. Allow this yarrow and arnica bruise cream to cool completely before sealing on the lids. Label and date each tin.


Use 2 tablespoon (24 grams) of beeswax for every 8 ounce cup of infused oil, for a spreadable salve.  If you want to put the salve in a stick to make travel easier, use 4 tablespoons (48 grams) of beeswax for each 8 ounce cup of infused oil.
