Natural calendula salve for everyday skin conditioning
A rich and golden salve that conditions, improves, and protects the skin. To make this natural calendula salve, I seep the entire dried flower heads in a light carrier oil then blend it with protective and conditioning beeswax and shea butter. Beeswax helps lock moisture and the other ingredients in while forming a light protective barrier on the skin. Shea butter is a rich plant-based oil that restores elasticity. Natural Calendula Salve also contains sweet almond oil, a light-feeling oil excellent for all skin types. The infused calendula petals also give this balm a lovely golden colour.
Many people know that calendula flowers contain bioactive constituents that could help speed up the healing of minor wounds and burns. However, Natural Calendula Salve is not a medicinal product, and I cannot provide medical advice. However, you can read other purchaser’s experiences with using the product in the reviews tab and the testimonials below.
A recipe sharing how to make calendula salve is in the maker’s book, A Woman’s Garden, and also in Calendula: A Guide to Growing and Using it in Skincare.
The Calendula Salve is the best thing I have bought in a long time. Although not suffering from eczema, I have scaly skin on my face which is always more of a problem in the winter. I have tried many products over the years, including pure oils, but nothing matches the efficiency of this natural salve. It’s easy to use, as well as economical as you need very little and it keeps the skin hydrated for a long time. I have now recommended it to several people.
The calendula salve is a lovely product for dry skin. Having suffered with itchy eczema for decades you will not be surprised to hear I have tried every cream and potion under the sun and I am very pleased to say that i just love this salve. It is very soft and creamy to apply and gives relief. I love the fact that there are few ingredients in it so nothing to confuse what I might or might not be allergic to. Just the calming calendula. Thank you.
