I love this time of the year when everything is blooming. This is the right time to create something original, useful that each family member appreciates. And dandelions are a good choice. They are everywhere, you don't feel guilty to bring some blossoms home and they have many benefits.

Dandelion Salve

To prepare dandelion salve ( 1 jar of 300 ml) you need to use the infused dandelion oil we have prepared here.


Ingredients:

  • ½ cup dandelion infused oil
  • 2 tablespoons beeswax
  • few drops of essential oil ( I used lemongrass, but you can use lavender or any others that you like )
5 blooming dandelions

Instructions:

  1. heat the dandelion infused oil in a bain-marie (a double boiler) with the beeswax.
  2. Stir until the beeswax is fully melted
  3. Add a few drops of your essential oil before removing from heat.
  4. Pour the substance into your glass jar and let it sit for a couple of hours.

The dandelion salve is suitable for people with cracked and dry skin. It heals really quickly and gives a pleasant moisturizing effect.


Dandelion Lip Balm

Another way to use your infused dandelion oil is to make dandelion lip balm. It has similar effects to the cream when applied to the lips.


All you need, to make 4-6 lip balms:


Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons of dandelion oil
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon of beeswax
  • 4-6 lip balm containers - you can use your old lip balm tubes or a small jar

Instructions:

  1. Gently heat the dandelion infused oil in a bain-marie (a double boiler) with the beeswax.
  2. add coconut oil
  3. Stir until the beeswax and coconut oil are fully melted
  4. Add a few drops of your essential oil before removing from heat.
  5. Fill the lip balm tubes or a small jar when still warm.


Both dandelion salve and dandelion lip balm can make a beautiful gift for your loved ones.
