A salve is just an oil (or mixture of oils), such as sweet almond or macadamia, thickened with a butter or beeswax. I have always used beeswax in my salves, because I have a constant supply of it. N-Essentials asked me to try their Shea Butter Moisturiser Cream, which uses shea butter, sweet almond oil and coconut oil, with beautiful essential oils of geranium and myrrh. I was very interested to try this and find out how it compared to the other salves I have made using beeswax.
