DIY Infused Lavender Calendula Skin Salve

Skin Salves are Easy to Make

When I decided to learn how to make skin salves, I was surprised by how easy it is. You can use dried flowers, essential oils or both depending on your preference.

I used dried calendula and lavender in this salve because they smell great together, and they both help to moisturize dry skin.

Put dried calendula and lavender in a mason jar, the cover the flowers with extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil.
