Hello! I have been trying to create an ivy salve for treating cellulitis according to a recipe I found here on the blog somewhere. Not having grapeseed oil, I used coconut oil as the blog post had advised. However, it’s not going too well: the coconut oil has solidified and thus I believe it might not be doing its job within the salve? I thought maybe I should heat this up on a slow bain-marie and then maybe add some almond oil to help the salve remain liquid? Would love some advice on how to proceed! Thank you in advance.
