In the past, I recommended people to buy neem salves whenever they had the occasion, it was because I didn’t know how to make them properly, and I was scared of making a mistake and getting a bad result, but since I learned this amazing technique I’m going to share with you in this post, I’m very confident that you are going to have success as I did and as such, I would like to show you the ingredients you are going to need in order to make the best neem salve.
First of all, why making neem salves?
Neem salves are extremely beneficial for treating acne scars and healing acne pimples, wound healing, as a moisturizing agent, healing aches, pains, bruises, and also are a very powerful insect repellent.
Before starting to make neem salves, you need to do some prep work, it consists of infusing neem leaves in olive oil, which is quite easy and here is what you need to do:
Take about a cup of dried neem leaves that you need to sort and make sure they are clean, and then put them in about a quarter of a liter of olive oil, infuse them for more than forty-five minutes on very low heat, make sure to avoid high heat as much as possible as it can damage the nutrients in both olive oil and neem leaves.
When you are done, leave the oil to cool down for at least six hours, if you are not in a hurry, leave it overnight.
The next very important ingredient you are going to need is beeswax, about 250 grams, it’s the one responsible for making the neem leaves infused oil harden and give you the final texture of your salve.
If you would like to have much more healing properties and a fantastic smell, then why not using some few drops of lavender oil, it’s very affordable and will give you a wonderful smelling product at the end.
In a double boiler, melt your beeswax, when it’s completely melted, add in a few drops of lavender oil and then start adding the neem leaves infused olive oil slowly while also stirring.
If the beeswax solidifies a little, don’t worry, just leave it in the double boiler in order to heat and melt again, then, make sure you act quickly and put it in a glass or tin container before it solidifies.
With this neem face wash, you will get rid of bacteria in your skin that are causing most problems in people! You should really try it to avoid and heal acne and other skin issues rapidly! it's very powerful!
And this is how you get the best neem salve for your skin and beauty purposes.
