In addition to OpenSSL, there are very compact commercial SSL libraries such as Mocana NanoSSL and wolfSSL, if you want to really simplify the process.

Yup. Every single modern programming language out there has a crypto library.

The high-level languages (e.g. Go) have crypto built into the standard library.

The low-level languages (e.g C or Rust) all have at least one or more well supported third party crypto libraries (e.g. for C there's OpenSSL, GnuTLS, LibreSSL, Boring SSL, Mbed TLS ... and those are the ones that I can think of off the top of my head).

There's no need to do any crypto "from scratch", and indeed you SHOULD NOT.
