  • Make a double boiler by putting a smaller pot over a larger pot that has a couple inches of water in it. You can also use a glass pyrex measuring cup instead of the smaller pot. 
  • Put the CBD infused oil into the smaller pot or pyrex and bring the water to a gentle simmer.
  • Add the beeswax to the oil and stir often. A wooden skewer works well as a stir stick.
  • When the beeswax is almost completely dissolved, add the shea butter. Stir until it is completely dissolved. 
  • Carefully pour the hot salve into your desired containers or tins.
  • Let them sit undisturbed until they completely solidify, it usually takes an hour or two.


  • Unrefined Shea Butter also works, but has a distinct scent.
  • CBD Salve has a shelf life of 1 year.
