First make an infused oil using the Jewelweed.

2 ounces of dried herb or 4 ounces fresh herb and 2 cups of any vegetable oil-

(you can use olive oil, almond oil, sesame oil, soy oil).

allbine ingredients in a double-boiler on low heat and let the herb "cook" for 1 to 2 hours.

Strain into a sterilized jar. (If your not going to use the oil right away to make salve, then

add 1/4 tsp. Vitamin E oil or Tincture of Benzoin for preservative).

To make the salve:

Gently heat 4 ounces of the infused oil in the top of a double-broiler type pan.

Add approximately 1 Tbsp of beeswax or paraffin. Let melt.

Add 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon Vitamin E oil or Tincture of Benzoin to act as a preservative.

Mix well. Pour or spoon into a jar. Let cool and cap.

This is great stuff! You can purchase dried Jewelweed

Herb from a Health-Food Store or by mail-order.
