Making Herbal Ointments, Salves and Balms: The Ultimate How-To Guide

(1 customer review)


Learn how to make your own herbal ointment, salve, and balm preparations from start to finish in my eBook, Making Herbal Ointments, Salves and Balms: The Ultimate How-To Guide. This guide will teach you the differences between these types of preparations, how to use them, and how to make them. I’ve even included 12 DIY herbal ointment, salve, and balm recipes so you can stock your home herbal apothecary, decrease toxins in your skincare routine, and care for your family naturally using time-tested herbal recipes.

These days, a quick internet search will reveal a plethora of methods, advice, and how-tos for making herbal ointments, salves, and balms. This amount of information is not only confusing to someone who’s new to using herbs and making DIY preparations, but it can be frustrating as well!

One of my goals at Growing Up Herbal has always been to make using herbs and living naturally a bit more doable for you, and this, my friend, is one of the reasons why I’ve written this how-to guide. 

Making Herbal Ointments, Salves & Balms: The Ultimate How-To Guide was written as a teaching resource for those looking for detailed information on making and using these types of preparations… start to finish.

By the end of this guide, you will not only know the difference in herbal ointments, salves, and balms, but you’ll know how to make and use each of these preparations, how to source quality ingredients, how to store them, and what you can do to extend their shelf-life. 

And that’s not all! I’m also sharing 12 herbal ointment, salve, and balm recipes with you in order to help you get started making and using these kinds of preparations as quickly as possible. Recipes included are:

  • GOOT Sore Throat Ointment
  • Arnica Bruise Ointment
  • Warming Sore Muscle Ointment
  • Under-Eye Wrinkle Ointment
  • Antibacterial “Neosporin” Salve
  • Black Drawing Salve
  • Lemon Mint Lip Scrub
  • Baby-Safe Vapor Rub
  • Nourishing Honey Lip Balm
  • Little Lady’s Solid Perfume
  • Scratch-No-More Bug Bite Balm
  • Firm Hold Hair Pomade

Enjoy, and here’s to living life naturally!

    Really loved to book! The clear, simple language made the difference between these 3 herbal products make sense for me, and the directions were very understandable and easy to follow. Definitely will be pulling this one out when making homemade ointments, saves, and balms.
