What are Salves?
A salve is an ointment used to promote healing of skin or as protection.
Our Calendula salves are made with sunflower oil infused with dried Calendula purchased from US. We add a small amount of beeswax which helps to protect, soothe, and nourish your skin. We only make small batches of salve as we do not use any preservatives in our products.
What Is Calendula?
Calendula (Calendula officinalis), also known as pot marigold, is an annual flower that blooms regularly through the growing season. Native to the Mediterranean, calendula got its name because it seems to bloom with the calendar.
Benefits of Calendula:
It possesses anti-inflammatory properties to naturally heal cuts, wounds and other inflammatory skin diseases. It is also effective as a balm for diaper rashes on babies.
Each salve comes in a metal tin.
