Healing Properties of Calendula

Calendula officinalis has been used by herbalists and natural healers for centuries. It can be used both internally and externally to support the immune system, heal skin, and infections. Calendula works its magic by promoting cell repair and growth, coupled with its natural antiseptic, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. Above all, it is gentle in its work. Unlike some natural remedies, you don't need to worry about overdoing it with calendula.

These beautiful calendula flowers are currently being infused into an organic oil to create salve. Topically, calendula salve can ease, heal, or treat a large array of skin conditions. Some uses for calendula salve include: acne, burns, eczema, rashes, scrapes, stings, sunburn, swelling, and wounds.

Let's take a moment to ask, "What is a salve?". A salve is simply the term for a healing solution that you put on your skin, including creams, ointments, or balms. Generally, salves are fairly thick, shelf-stable, and include nourishing oils. Along with a base oil (or several), salves also typically contain natural waxes or butters to bind the ingredients and make them semi-solid at room temperature.

These beautiful dried flowers are currently being infused into an organic oil that we will create salve with. Our organic Calendula Salve will be ready for purchase in store and online in about 5-6 weeks!

We will update on Facebook and the blog when the salve is ready. Our organic calendula salve is a must have for your Herbal First Aid Kit!
