Hey Jangel, where do you get those containers? And you use about 15ml oil PTO in the 4 cups of other oil? Did you ever try it with the coconut oil and, if so, could you post your final recipe if you have obtained the correct consistency?
I have a hubby who is retiring from the USAF in a few weeks and his body is shot. They're recommending cortisone for his shoulders, entire spine, hips, knees. Hell no. Thinking cannabis is the answer. He's interested in oil, but he HATES to get buzzed (silly man ... I'll try to break him of that ridiculousness). So I was thinking maybe a topical might be the answer, but he would have to pretty much put it everywhere. One friend suggested I add some DMSO to the mixture and have him rub it on the soles of his feet (an old reflexology trick). The DMSO will take the cannabis straight into the body. Dunno if you have played around with any of that or not, but I'm not sure what it would do with the cinnamon and other stuff. But if you haven't investigated DMSO, you might wanna read up on it. It was developed for horses' leg injuries, but there are some alternative clinics that even use it IV for cancer tx. Great for pain of all sorts and takes whatever is mixed with is straight into the body, so one must be careful not to have like latex gloves on or apply it with something that you don't want in your body.
You will also need some containers, sterilized, dry and ready to use for the finished product. I was lucky enough that my sweetie had the smaller round ones, never used, already which he kindly donated to the cause, as well as the stainless steel metal ones.
Okay, here we go. First off, I put 2 cups of the Olive oil into my rice cooker. Since the healing hemp oil is already reduced, there is no need other than to melt and mix the ingrediants together, for it to cook for any length of time. I simply used the rice cooker on warm, to heat the fats.
Once it was warm to hot, I added the virgin cocanut oil and stirred until they where mixed...then unplugged it to turn it off.
Here they are both heated together and the hemp oil added.
For the hemp oil, I just dipped out some of the warmed oils and kept working them into the hemp oil with my chopstick. It totally disolved it, but it was soooo oilie I had to keep working and, as I was alone, no pics of this part. It totally went into solution, very nicely, and every speck disolved eaisly. Once I had it all into the mixture, I re-wieghed the dish, empty, to figure out how much hemp oil I had added. Which was 15.4 grams. Not bad!
Now, for measuring the essenses, you must watch that one drop is somewhat equal per different essenses. What I did was measure first into a spoon, and see how much each quantity was. SO say for the the Myrh, 30 drops was so much on the same spoon (say half), then you know that if perchance while you are measureing out 30 drops of the cinnamon bark and it is over than, where to stop, so they will be equal amounts.
In my reading I also found that some people found the Cassia leaf/cinnamon leaf could make this hot for some people. So I used less of this for my mixture.
In the formulations I have found it says
1/4 Oz. Premium Cannabis flower tops (buds)
1 cup (8 Oz.) Organic Extra virgin olive oil
Premium "essential oils"
30 drops of myrrh
15 drops of cinnamon and
30 drops of cassia (cinnamon leaf) *
This is all per cup of fat or oils. Since I made 4 cups total fat of this I added in stages
~ 120 drops of Cinnamon bark
~ 120 drops of Myrh essence
~ 60 drops of Cassia/Cinnamon Leaf.*
Now, at this point, I smelled it, and checked it. It varies very widely how concentrated your essenses are. You need to smell it and see if you like what you have. I felt that it did not have enough essence in it at this point so I increased the amounts I added and added an additional
~ 60 drops Cinnamon Bark
~ 60 drops Myrh essence
~ 30 drops Cinnamon/Cassia Leaf*
FOR A TOTAL USED AMOUNT OF ESSENTIAL OILS
~ 180 drops of Cinnamon Bark Essence
~ 180 drops of Myrh essence
~ 90 drops of Cinnamon Leaf/Cassia essence*
Once I had that done I added beeswax to make it less runny.
In the package I had there where 4 leaves of wax, for a total wieght of 104 grms, so 26 grams each leaf of wax. I added this in stages until I reached the cosistancy I liked. I ended up adding 3 leaves, X 26 grams so a total of 78 grams of organic bees wax.
I added the wax and checked each stage, by scoping out a portion and chilling it off. One thing I found is you need to let this only cool to room temp as if you chill it too much, the potion gives you the wrong amount of "jelling" idea. It can look thicker due to the cold than it ends up. I had to redo this one more time after I thought I was finished due to this, as it was not as thick I wanted it to be.
And here it the final product...
It smells sooooo good too!
You can use many different types of oils for this. I will add more on this later.
