"Dirty" Salve Carrier Oil

September 06, 2014 28 Comments

If you love coffee and coffee shops you know the term "dirty".  A shot of espresso in Chai tea that gives that already blissful substance an extra kick is deemed: dirty.  Well, the same goes for my much loved Naked Salve, the not so naked carrier oil can be made "dirty" with one special added kick that helps anything added to it, work better!  My love for Naked Salve knew no bounds, but now...it's a flat out love fest! Ok, you don't have to call the "enhanced" Naked Salve dirty salve but I like it, it's catchy! Not only is it catchy, it's S I M P L E.  Ah yes, simplicity is one of the many reasons why I love pure essential oils, they make my life simpler and safer with their versatility.  If you don't know it already, there is one essential oil {EO} in particular that personifies versatility and that's pure Frankincense.  Let me tell you about it and why Naked Salve is getting a kick! Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils and faithful EO users have their favorites.  My preference is coconut oil, an organic, hand processed coconut oil with lots of benefits and nutrients all it’s own.  I feel very strongly about using the most nutrition packed carriers you can!  Coconut oil is antibacterial and the best source of lauric acid outside of breast milk.  Added olive oil has of anti-oxidants, including hydroxytyrosol and, anti-inflammatory properties.  The benefits of coconut and olive oils added to the healing properties of pure essentials makes a winning combination. Frankincense is the perfect one addition to Naked Salve because it helps all essential oils work better.  Not only is Frankincense considered the King of oils, it has no known side effects and even though it's a potent healer it's a gentle one, even more so than baby friendly pure Lavender.
  • Frankincense promotes health and immunity on a cellular level. Frank promotes regeneration of healthy cells and keeps existing cells and tissue healthy.
  • A powerful astringent and regenerative, Frankincense possesses the ability to slow aging of skin.  Helps to reduce sunspots, micro wrinkles and tone and tighten skin all over while simultaneously replacing old or dying cells with new ones.  Frankincense is the greatest addition to any moisturizer for face and body!  Remember, Frank enhances all other oils!  For this reason, my Ultimate Skin Serum with rose, helichrysum, geranium, sandalwood and lavender is made even more powerful by the addition of Frankincense to enhance their most excellent healing and rejuvenating properties. I wish I could slather this serum all over my body, every day, but it's too precious and must be saved for my face :)
  • Frankincense is an overall body tonic, it benefits all systems of the body including respiratory, digestive, nervous and excretory.  It also increases strength by allowing better absorption of nutrients and increasing immunity with regular use.  It lowers anxiety, anger and stress, reducing the damaging effects these emotions have on our body.
  • Frankincense is a well known anti-inflammatory too - an important property for a carrier oil.
Dirty Salve Carrier Oil I could go on and on about the benefits of Frankincense and the potent kick that it gives Naked Salve, a new carrier oil but experience is the best teacher.  Next time you're in the kitchen stirring up some healthy healing salves, be sure to grab your pure Frankincense and make a jar of Dirty Salve Carrier Oil, it's driving properties will take your essential oil remedies deeper into tissue and amplify the properties!  Try it, I think you'll love it!

    CW Naked Salve is now available for purchase:

    1 cw round 150

    ingredients
    • 1 cup organic, unrefined virgin coconut oil 
    • 1 cup organic olive oil or Hemp Seed Oil
    • 4 tablespoons beeswax pastilles
    • 1/2 teaspoon vitamin e oil
    • 30 drops Frankincense per 4oz jar
    Directions
    1. A large recipe like this will fill five 4 oz jars. If you want less, adjust the recipe. If you would like to fill more small jars than large, adjust accordingly.
    2. On low to medium heat, melt the coconut oil, olive oil and beeswax in a warm bath of water stirring occasionally. Add the vitamin e oil last. I like to use an 8 cup Pyrex measuring bowl with a handle set down in a saucepan of water. It makes for convenient pouring!
    3. Add appropriate amount of Frankincense to jars then add the melted oils. Cover with tea towel and let sit to cool and harden. Shelf life is approximately 4 months.
    4. Use your salve as you would a carrier oil, it's packed with nutrition and superior to fractionated coconut oil. However, FCO is useful for roll on or spray bottle protocols.
    5. Using your finger, scoop out amount needed and add your EOs for desired protocol.

    You are always coming up with great ideas! I love that about you and this is an awesome idea! I usually have a jar of “naked” salve to use and now I believe I will be needing to have “dirty” salve. Can’t wait to see your next great idea.

    I’ve found it easy to just reheat your salve back down to liquid. Beezwax is very forgiving

    What do you think about adding Frankincense to All Purpose Healing Salve?

    I am going to make your salve for the first time, and I have a question. I bought unrefined organic virgin coconut oil (expeller pressed, the guy said it’s the same thing as unrefined) but mine is always in liquid form. I live in California, and do it is usually at least 75 or higher in our house at all times, is that why, or is this the wrong coconut oil? I really want to make this salve, but am afraid if it is in liquid form now, will it always be in a liquid form? I bought 100% pure organic filtered raw beeswax pellets ( Rocky Mountain till company) and organic vitamin e oil from a local health store ( Jason vitamin e 5,000 I.U.) should I buy a differen coconut oil, like the one your recommend? Thanks for your help and all your great info!

    Adding Frankincense to All Purpose is a great choice! I would recommend adding 10-12 drops per 2 oz jar. Best thoughts heading out to both of you.

    Hello, I am going to make the all purpose healing salve for my sister in law. Her burns continue to seep and cause her great discomfort after several years after radiation. I want to add frank to the receipe. The one receipe calls for 40 drops. Should I use that many drops to add to the receipe? Thank you.

    Dirty Salve would be fantastic Debbie! You could add a little Lavender if you like. I’ve heard from many that CW Salves have been instrumental in healing radiation burns and useful for cancer patients. Thanks for thinking of them :-)

    Hi Rebecca! I along with so many others love your site! You’ve taught me so much! But I have a question about the dirty salve. If someone was in the hospital undergoing chemo for lymphoma would this salve be good for his body with another oil like wild orange along with the frankincense? Or is there something better?

    Dirty Salve is a super charged carrier salve for your essential oil use. Frankincense blends with all EOs and amplifies their properties. This salve alone with Frankincense is a fantastic go to for minor cuts, bruises and scrapes!

    Hi Camp Wander
    I do love your site, it is very interesting and so useful. I’ve made several of your salves now. Everyone loves them but, I’m hoping you can tell me what I’m doing wrong with my salve. After a few weeks it feels like there are grains of sand in it.
    Can you tell me what I’m doing wrong?
    Thanks
    Aussie Girl, Kim

    Good morning Debbie! This isn’t a silly question at all, let me see if I can explain the difference for you…

    Dirty Salve is actually a super powered Naked Salve because of the added Frankincense. Frankincense compliments every other essential oil and in fact, can aid deeper penetration into skin tissue with topical use. You would use Dirty Salve as you would Naked Salve – a carrier to use with your essential oils…with the extra healing properties of pure Frankincense!

    HI Rebecca….Please forgive my silly question, but i’m confusing myself and I think you are the only one that is going to be able to clear the fog…lol. So I have made your All purpose and I even kept one Naked. If I am correct, the all purpose is already great for scrapes and burns and what ever else you wish to slather it on. I love this stuff. And so does my husband. I don’t get the Dirty one though. I love my Frank, but i’m wondering why I wouldn’t just use the All Purpose VS the dirty. I’m not opposed to making it….but I’m trying to sort out the difference…actually between those two and the naked.. I want to thank you for sharing all this FANTASTIC stuff with us. You are my absolute favorite, and I look forward to each of your posts. I’m just having a hard time sorting out the different stuff.

    You have a GREAT, great day.
    Debbie.

    Brandy, expeller pressed coconut oil is fine but it is somewhat processed to remove the natural coconut flavor. Coconut oil will turn to liquid at 76 degrees so in your case, a warm house, you will need to keep it in the refrigerator if you want both your coconut oil and your salve to stay in a semi-solid state. You’ll get the same benefits however, whether they’re liquid or solid :)

    I am sorry to ask, but just want to make sure I am reading this correctly, you use 30 drops of frankincense in each 4 oz jar? Not 30 drops per batch of naked salve? It just seemed like a lot and I wanted to be 100% sure before making it. Sorry if it is a repeat question and thanks for the help and great recipes!

    Therapeutic Boswellia Carterii is used in Dirty Salve – an enhanced carrier base.

    What Sue said^^^ – Which Frank? Frereana, Carterii, Omani/Sacra, or Serrata?
    I’m thinking it might be good to use with Sacred Frank, plus it would help to stretch out such a pricey oil.
    Thanks in advance

    Kim, first of all, thank you for the compliment. With regard to grainy salve, it could be an issue with the coconut oil, especially if it’s unrefined. Have you tried remelting the grainy salves, letting them cool and checking on the consistency? If not, this might be a solution!

    Rebecca

    Yes, 30 drops per 4 oz jar is correct.
