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). Combine 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.
