This lady cramp salve is for those days when your uterus is staging an in-body uprising. If you are not the proud owner of a uterus, perhaps you’d like to bake a cake or something instead of making this salve—of you could make a batch for your favourite uterus owner. They’ll appreciate it.


I’ve based this lady cramp salve on my anti-cramp oil, which is magical stuff. Truly. The only problem with it is that it’s a bit drooly, so I set out to solve that here.


Beyond the addition of some beeswax to make this a salve instead of an oil, I’ve also added some bright red chili oil to amp up the heat. It’s a toasty addition that I really like, and I think you will, too.


I used one of these handy-dandy push-up tubes from Saffire Blue to make this super easy to apply, but any 1oz/30mL tube/tin will do the trick.


The final lady cramp salve is a tube of spicy scented warming goodness. You’re welcome 🙂

Lady Cramp Salve

7g | 0.25oz beeswax (USA / Canada)
19g | 0.67oz  safflower oil (or other fast absorbing liquid oil)

40 drops clary sage essential oil
30 drops peppermint essential oil (USA / Canada)
20 drops cassia essential oil
20 drops chili seed essential oil
6 drops lavender essential oil
6 drops juniper essential oil
4 drops German chamomile essential oil

Measure the beeswax and liquid oil out into a glass measuring cup and melt in a double boiler.

Once everything has melted together, remove the cup from the heat, dry it off, and quickly count out the drops of essential oils into the melted oils, stir to combine, and pour the mixture into your 1oz tube/tin to set up.

To use, apply the salve to any crampy bits and wait 5–10 minutes for the warming, soothing goodness to kick in.
