1. To start, mix the dried mint leaves and pine needles with the sunflower oil. After infusing them, drain the oil and store it in a cool place six months before mixing in the salve. Shake the jar every 2 weeks.

2. After the waiting 6 months, combine a ½ cup of the sunflower oil, shea butter and beeswax in something heatproof. Put the container into a small pot with water and place the pan over a medium-to-low heat until the beeswax mixture melts.

3. Then, remove it and mix in the infused oil. Slowly, without letting it drip, pour the mixture into a few clean prepared jars.

4. Depending on a soft or firm salve desired, just melt the mix and mix a tad more beeswax or a bit more infused oil.
