DIY Sleep Salve

Tired of restless night? Why not try our DIY sleep salve recipe? This will help help relax your restless body with a combination of oils. Makes about 16 ounces of sleep salve.

What you will need: 

Directions:

  1. Place the coconut oil, olive oil, and grated beeswax in a pot and heat over a burner. If using the microwave slowly warm in the microwave in short bursts in a bowl. Once everything has melted, give it a stir, and then remove from heat.
  2. Now blend together the essential oils to create the dreamy mix of scents. Lavender is so soothing while orange and cinnamon help calm nerves. Cedarwood, sandalwood, and ylang ylang offer grounding, earthy smells. And peppermint does a great job of easing muscle pains. Using around 50 drops of each creates a great blend. Add to the coconut oil mixture.
  3. Now carefully ladle the warm sleep salve into clean jars, let cool until room temperature, and then cap. Your sleep slave is ready to use! Keep it close to your bed and smooth onto feet, cover with socks,  on nights you're having a tough time drifting off to sleep. The larger pores in your feet allow the essential oils to quickly absorb and flow through the body, helping you relax.
