herbal salves

Recreational Witchcraft: Simple Salve Recipe

Beeswax salves are a great recipe to have in your repertoire because depending on the herbs included they can be used for many purposes. Healing balms can be made for cuts, scrapes, bites, and for topically treating pain like menstrual cramps or sore muscles. Moisturizing salves can be used on the lips, cuticles or to combat any dry winter skin.  As for magical applications, the list is a long one. Protection salves, flying ointments, and glamour salves are just some of the more common ways beeswax salves have been used as a simple method of transferring the power and magic of specific herbs to the body. The possibilities are quite endless. 

You will need:

  • A mason jar
  • 1 cup of Olive oil
  • 1 ounce of Beeswax 
  • Assorted herbs
  1. Choose your herbs. Remember to choose your herbs with care. Herbs have specific medicinal and magical properties and some can cause allergic reactions. Use your better judgment.
  2. Combine your chosen herbs and one cup of olive oil into a mason jar. Your herbs will steep in this mixture for one month so their properties can be better absorbed into the oil. 
  3. After your herbs have steeped for a month, Melt down your beeswax into a liquid form, taking care not to burn it. You can do this on the stove but know that wax can be a hassle to clean from pots and pans (For this reason we have a specific pot for melting wax).
  4. Combine your infused olive oil and melted beeswax. You may strain out the herbs from the mixture to get a cleaner look like the salve above but the step is optional. Stir the wax and oil to together well, and pour the liquid into a tin or other other container. Let the salve cool and harden. Your salve is ready to use!

My witchy iOS apps.

Wow! I’ve never gotten more than MAYBE 15 notes in my many years on tumblr. Thanks, witch fam!

UPDATED*** Here are some app links for @valicorne​ and others who requested. They should all be free. Some of these are also in the Android Marketplace, and for those that aren’t, there are comparable ones.

And my mom has a baller sigil making app on Android I envy: Sigil Automatron. Anyone know of a comparable one for iOS? (I don’t want just a paint or photoshop-like app, but one specific
To making sigils)

Not all the full names show in the screenshotted app view, which is why some of you struggled to find them. Sorry!):

1. Tarot Card Memorizer: Pretty self explantaory. This is a nice reference when you’re trying to learn card meanings.

2. Pendulum Charts Free - a plethora of charts. I like using that on my iPad, not super useful on a smaller screen, aka my iPhone. Can also use to reference for making your own charts on paper, or woodburning like I’m working on.

3. Golden Thread Tarot - Really nice free eversion of great physical deck. Nice for witches on the go, or witches on a budget.

4. Crystals And Gems - Handy reference guide for both physical and metaphysical attributes.

5. Mighty Timer - temperature, time, and amount of tea you need for the perfect cup. Great kitchen witch app, especially if you grow some of your own herbs for tea, like I do.

6. TimePassages - Free daily horoscopes, meanings, planetary bodies glossary and then some paid options for chart downloads.

7. Herbs Guide - Herbs for health and cooking. ***never take any information found on the Internet or via apps as medical advice. Seek professional medical help if you have an issues. This witch is very pro-science and modern medicine, despite making teas, tinctures, and herbal salves. Those are merely supplements to help relieve symptoms.

8. Dreamboard - my favorite digital dream journal

9. Runes - pocket advisor - Get one, two and three rune readings. Also helps you learn the meanings of elder futhark runes.
10. SkyView Free -This overlays constellations and other astronomical information when you open the app and point it at the night sky. Uses your camera and GPS to know what it’s looking at. Works inside, too. I impress the heck out of people when I whip this out at stargazing events.

11. Best Essential Oils and Aromatherapy Guide Pro - This app, containing six broad sections - guides, application, single oil, oil blends, aromatherapy and weight loss. Again, this is not to be used in place of proper nutrition and medical attention, and be very careful when using essential oils. All need to be diluted with carrier oils, and some are dangerous if you’re pregnant, etc.

12. Spellcaster - tarot cards, horoscope and pre-written spells. Not my favorite, but fun to flip through.

13. Celeste -LOOOVE. Celeste allows you to calculate a natal chart, which you can view on a zodiac wheel. You also get a description of all the planets in signs, not just the sun sign.

14. Star Chart - This is similar to skyview. I haven’t played with it too much so I can’t vouch for it quite yet. I think I prefer the skyview interface.

15. Free Candle - Different candle options, and you cna blow them out. Great for on the go candle magick/meditation, and for those who aren’t allowed to use candles in apartments/dorms/etc.

16. The Pocket Pagan - “This unique Pagan app includes a map of the USA and Canada filled with Pagan, occult and New Age stores, a handy correspondence guide for quick magickal look-ups, and a calendar that shows you the next full moon and Sabbat dates. Quick links can help you find the latest news, blogs and videos too. One little widget shows the real-time moon phase too.”

17. Moon - current moon phase - Love this. Very simple interface for when you JUST want basic full, new, waxing, waning moon info.

18. Herbs in Magick - The application contains information about more than 200 herbs and their magickal use. No internet connection

Need help getting started? See our Simple Salve recipe here.

Apothecary Lesson #1: Herbal Salve

     Well, it was bound to happen at some point. Hello everybody, my name is Davide, and today, I’m going to teach you guys how to make a salve. Basically, a salve is an oil and wax mixture that people can use for a bunch of different reasons, ranging from dry skin to muscle rubs. They’re easy to make, if you’re patient, and their variability makes for endless possibilities. Just as a warning though, this will take a goddamn long time to make, and for you to read, so I suggest getting some tea and snackilackage before starting to read. Got it? Good, ¡vamos!


Part One: The Oil

     A key component of your salve is the oil, or more specifically, the herbs in said oil. There’s a plethora of different oils you could in your salve, but for this recipe, we’re using olive oil because it’s fairly hardy and difficult to burn. When it comes to what you should or could put in your oil, there’s waaaaaay too many things for me to mention, so I’ll give a basic rundown: 

  • Mint, Anise, Cinnamon, and Comfrey are good for muscle rubs
  • Calendula, Chamomile, Aloe, and Tea Tree Oil are good for skin
  • Ginger and Turmeric are good as arthritis pain relievers
  • Echinacea, Eucalyptus, and Hibiscus are antibacterial and are good for minor scrapes, cuts and bruises

Now that you’ve got an idea of some herbs to use, let’s get to how to make your oil 

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz. Olive oil
  • 3-4 oz. dried and/or ground herbs

Utensils:

  • Double-boiler set up (can be a double-boiler, or a glass container in a saucepan filled with about 1″ of water) 
  • dark-tinted jar w/ label for holding your finished oil

Instructions:

  1. Into your double-boiler (the part without the water…duh), pour in your olive oil and herbs. 
  2. Set your stove/heating receptacle to low heat, placing double-boiler on heat. 
  3. Infuse oils for 1-2 hours (one hour for minimum infusion amount, two hours for maximum infusion amount before oil goes rancid) 
  4. Once oil is done, pour into your dark-tinted jar, and label accordingly
  5. Voila! You have yourself some bonafide herbal oil for the next part of your salve!

Part Two: The Salve

     Alright, now we’re getting to the good stuff–the salve. For this, you’re going to need 2 ingredients (three ingredients is optional, four is overkill): beeswax and your herbal oil. Without further ado, let’s get this over with! :D 

Ingredients:

  • 1 oz. Beeswax
  • 8 oz. Herbal Oil 
  • *Optional*: ¼ tsp. essential oil
  • *Optional*: the tears and/or blood of your enemies

Utensils:

  • Double-boiler system
  • Containers to hold your salve (the total amount of salve being made is approximately 9 oz., so for the containers, try to prioritize. Like, if you want three different jars of salves, use three 3 oz. jars. Math n’ shit)

Instructions:

  1. Set your stove to medium-low heat
  2. Into your double-boiler, melt your wax
  3. Once the wax has melted–it’s imperative that your wax has to be completely melted before adding the oil–add your herbal oil. 
  4. Stir fully (it’s not weird to see the wax immediately harden once you add the herbal oil, so wait until it fully re-melts)
  5. Once salve is all liquid, pour into your container(s). Do not cover your containers before they harden.
  6. Once salve has cooled at room temperature, it’s ready to use! Store in a cool, dry place. Apply to problem areas, or just lather it all over your body and have really weird sex (You do you boo boo)

Thanks for reading you guys! I’d enjoy a reblog, a reshare, or if you hated it, a strongly worded message to me and probably a few images of you flipping the bird. Have an amazing day/afternoon/night/time-between-night-and-morning

Made a new batch of  Magic Muscle Balm yesterday!  With Dandelion Flower Oil, St. John’s Wort Oil, and Lavender Essential Oil -  This muscle balm is great to relax after a long run, working out, playing sports, working in the garden or after a hard day at work. Lover of hands, fingers, backs, necks, legs, feet, and more.

Eucalyptus Vapor Rub Balm

Here’s a natural alternative to relieving colds, coughs, and flus! After making this, you’re going to want to toss that Vicks in the trash! This balm can be made many ways with other EOs to assist with the healing process of suffering from a cold, but the main ingredient that helps open up the sinuses and steer clear of bacteria is Eucalyptus!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Tablespoon Beeswax (candelilla wax for vegan alternative)
  • 3 Tablespoons Coconut Oil (or any other Oil)
  • 1 Tablespoon Shea Butter (or any other butter)
  • ½ Tablespoon Eucalyptus Essential Oil (depending on quality)

Everyone prefers different consistencies and depending on the temperature in your home, you may need to play around with the portion of the oils and wax.

How to make it:

Begin by adding all the ingredients into a double boiler. To do this, simply place a pan(with a little water in it), on the stove and add a pot, bowl or mug into the pan. With the stove on medium heat, start by adding the wax first (since it takes the longest to melt) into your bowl, then add Shea Butter, and then the oils. Stir until all ingredients are completely mixed and melted. Turn heat off, pour into containers and let cool! That’s it!

How to use it:

I like to wear this balm on my chest and rub onto my nostrils before bed. It can be worn during the day but be careful and be sure to wash your hands before touching your mouth or eyes after use.

About Eucalyptus:

Eucalyptus is widely known to be used for respiratory complaints, coughs, arthritic aches and pains because of it’s antiseptic, antibiotic, and expectorant properties. This oil forms Ozone, which specifically destroys bacteria, fungi, and viruses. An infusion can be made with leaves and taken internally to acute stages of chronic coughs, colds, and flus. Most commonly, the oil is rubbed directly on the chest or back for all respiratory problems. It can also be similarly rubbed as a liniment for the relief of arthritis and rheumatic pains.

-Jacqueline, the Plant Lady.

Magickal Sunlight Oil:

This oil can be used as a base in salves, lip balms, regular or dry perfumes, or applied directly to the skin as aromatherapy and to heal dry, broken, damaged skin.
The oil uses medicinal ingredients from herbs with extreme benefits to the skin, and magickal properties from the same herbs, as well as from the sun to heal and promote positivity!

Supplies:

A jar
Calendula/Marigold Flowers, dried
Sunflowers, dried
Lemon peel and lemon seeds, dried
Jojoba oil
Olive oil

Instructions:

Add all of the ingredients to the jar, filling the almost jar completely with the herbs in equal parts, and then cover the herbs in the oils completely. Put the jar on your windowsill and let it soak in the sunlight. Shake it at least twice daily. Allow it to sleep for at least three weeks. Strain the herbs until you have only clean oil. Enjoy!

Herbal Headache Soothing Salve

Ingredients

½ oz beeswax * See bottom of post for info on vegan substitutions

4 Tbsps extra virgin olive oil

2 Tbsps castor oil 

1 Tbsps magnesium oil

20 drops peppermint essential oil

10 drops lavender essential oil

10 drops citrus essential oil 

Instructions:

  1. Measure out extra virgin olive oil and set aside
  2. Weigh out about ½ oz of beeswax. (or vegan substitution see below) If you prefer a softer salve in general, use a bit less. If your beeswax (or sub) is in a bar and not pastilles, shred or shave so that it will melt easier.
  3. Place beeswax and carrier olive oil in a double boiler and melt. Use low heat to preserve integrity of the oil. If you do not have a double boiler or don’t feel like scraping the beeswax out of it later, simply place ingredients in a mason jar and hold over a pan filled with water.
  4. Remove from heat and add magnesium, castor and essential oils. Whip quickly with a fork and pour directly into a small glass jar or tin. Experiment with different size jars so that you have some for your home, and some smaller ones to slip in your pocket for on-the-go.
  5. Place the jar in the refrigerator or freezer to set. Remove when hardened (likely no more than 30 minutes). Apply to forehead, temples, neck, shoulders or wherever may need some cooling tension relief.

You can use Carnauba or Candilla wax as substitutes for beeswax in this recipe. 

The substitution ratio for both alternatives is: ½ oz per 1 oz beeswax (simply use half of whatever amount of beeswax is asked for).

                             Beeswax                 Carnauba Wax       Candelilla Wax
Melting Point            143.6-149 F            181.4 ºF                 155 - 165º F

Candelilla wax tends to be a bit more greasy than carnuaba wax so keep that in mind when making substitution decisions.

Warning; this post will be entirely in caps lock because I am one very, very excited herbal healer witch
