DIY Hemp Beeswax Salve: Simple & Easy

If you ever wanted to make your own CBD/Hemp salve and customize it according to your needs, here’s a simple recipe. You can add peppermint, jojoba oil and any other essential oils you desire. This is a simple recipe to modify.


Simple, easy to find ingredients. No fuss no muss. You can add lavender or mint, pretty much anything to give a pleasant/fragrant smell. The smell of lavender relaxes some people and similarly, so does mint.


Double Boiler                                 

A double boiler consists of a bowl placed on top of a pan of simmering water.The bowl does not touch the water, but creates a seal with the bottom pan to trap the steam produced by the simmering water.

This is typically used where direct heat is not desirable. To avoid separation or burning of delicate ingredients, a double boiler is used. No need to buy one, just make your own. I think you have the idea now. So hop to it.





  1. Combine the Hemp oil, copaiba oil, beeswax, and Shea butter together in a double boiler (see above)
  2. Heat over medium heat until completely melted
  3. Remove from heat and quickly pour into tins
  4. Let salve harden, and store in a cool, dry place

Color may look a little different, but who cares, as long as it works. You can customize this basic salve any way you want as stated earlier. In the future I’ll post a few more DIY homemade CBD tincture/salve recipes, so stay tuned.

    Thanks so much, for your intriguing recipe! The salve could make amazing presents, I think. I’ve attended a natural cosmetics course and was mesmerised how much you can save by making your homemade products. And by making them yourself, you also cherish them and enjoy them more, I feel. But I’ve always had a slight problem with the beeswax, it often stuck together and there were lumps in the finished product afterwards. Maybe I wasn’t using the correct temperature of placed it in the bowl too suddenly? Thank you for your insights!

    Thank you for sharing this here. Not everyone actually knows how to ensure we can make something like this. Instead of having to pay exorbitantly to buy the cbd oil or get products related. Having the knowledge on the making and actually making it ourselves can really make the whole difference for it all. Thanks so much for sharing this post here. Thumbs up to you

    While this is absolutely not something I would take on personally, this was a pretty interesting find. I was completely unaware that making your own was this easy. Again I’m not sure that the cost savings would be worth it to me but I can absolutely see how the creative types would enjoy this process.

    CBD is really gaining grounds in the health spectrum these days, but I am not surprised given its health benefits.

    Thank you for putting together this simple guide on how to make my own CBD Salve.

    The ingredients used are really very simple, and I love that I can modify it, as I would love to  add Lavender when I do try it out.

    Lavender does have a calming and relaxing effect, I can attest to that. So it would be great to have it on board.

    Will let you know how it goes when I give it a try.

    Thanks for sharing..

    Thanks so much for sharing this DIY CBD salve recipe. You made it a lot easier than I had thought. 

    Before now I usually stay away from DIYing because I do not have a double burner, who knew I could improvise from what i have in my kitchen. Thanks for the creative tip!

    Will definitely be creating this salve following your guidelines and recipes very soon.

    It’s nice to read an article from you again. Cannabis offers rest relaxation and well-being when used in cosmetic formulations for medical and therapeutic purposes. Congratulations on the widespread use and performance of the CBD product.

    Thanks for another time for your very helpful and useful topic. You give the solution for many people as the CBD’s benefits are so many.


  • Harry says:

    I haven’t been using CBD for a long time now and I am trying to experiment with as many ways of injecting it as possible to find out which is the most beneficial to me.

    I’m going to try this salve as well but I have one question for you…

    Could I use coconut oil instead of copaiba oil or it could ruin the recipe?

    Thanks a lot!

    This is a good salve that helps for an injury that you have. I won’t mind making this, but first, have to gather the ingredients, so I’ll have to refer back to your post for the instructions on how to make it again.

    Thank you so much for this article, it will help many people I’m sure.

    All the best to you.

    Creating my own CBD salve, wow this can actually save me a lot of money, can’t wait to try! I was stumped on what technique to use, the answer is right in front of my eyes – Double boiler by using the steam for indirect heat, genius! Is there any time indication on how long we should stir it while on heat? 

  • Paul says:

      I’ve been using CBD for about 2 yrs. It helps with inflammation from sports injuries and relaxation/sleep.
