Chickweed salve is a traditional herbal remedy used to soothe and heal skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and rashes. Here is a simple recipe to make your own chickweed salve at home:


  • 1 cup fresh chickweed leaves and stems (or 1/2 cup dried)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup beeswax
  • 10-15 drops of lavender essential oil (optional)


  1. Clean and chop the fresh chickweed, or measure out the dried chickweed and put it in a glass jar.
  2. Pour the olive oil over the chickweed until it is completely covered.
  3. Stir the mixture and cover the jar with a lid.
  4. Place the jar in a sunny spot for 2-4 weeks, shaking it daily.
  5. After 2-4 weeks, strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer to remove the plant material.
  6. In a double boiler, melt the beeswax over low heat.
  7. Once melted, add the infused oil and stir well.
  8. If desired, add 10-15 drops of lavender essential oil and stir well.
  9. Pour the mixture into a small container or jar and let it cool and solidify.
  10. Store the chickweed salve in a cool, dry place and use as needed to soothe and heal skin irritations.

Note: This recipe can also be made using dried chickweed if fresh chickweed is not available. Simply reduce the amount of chickweed to 1/2 cup and follow the same instructions.
