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.
What can calendula salve be used for?
If you pay attention to labels, you’ll probably notice calendula as a key ingredient in many natural skin care products, and for a good reason! Topically, calendula salve can ease, heal, or otherwise treat a huge array of skin conditions. This includes: rashes, sunburn, swelling, eczema, acne, stings, wounds, burns, scrapes, chicken pox, cold sores.
I personally love to use homemade calendula salve on my dry cracked cuticles after a day of digging in the dirt, or on scars, scrapes, chapped lips, and dry feet. It is a favorite daily hand moisturizer. I also find calendula salve or oil to be very soothing after shaving, to prevent or treat razor burn. Last but not least, calendula salve can also lessen the appearance of varicose veins and soften scars.
Use calendula salve to soothe dry or irritated skin, including for eczema, rashes, burns (including sunburn), bites, stings, scrapes, scars, psoriasis, chapped lips, cracked cuticles, cradle cap, diaper rash, razor burn, rough elbows and feet, or dry hands.
