Simple Calendula Salve

Every household should have a few tins of this lovely golden salve around. It is a multiple purpose ointment that can be used for so many skin issues. You can get all of the supplies for it from our shop. This recipe makes 4 1/2 ounces of salve. 



4 ounces Calendula infused olive oil
 1/2 ounces of beeswax
 1 teaspoon Vitamin E
 Lovely jars or tins to store your salve



Instructions
In a double boiler heat the oil and beeswax on medium low heat until melted. Take off the heat, add the Vitamin E. Combine well and pour into your desired container (I like using four 1 ounce tins and pouring the extra in a smaller tin for traveling).
