Calendula is known for its assistance in healing and regenerating the skin. Traditionally it has been used to soothe distressed skin, calm scar tissue, and other skin conditions.
We always recommend Calendula Salve to the new mother as it is fantastic for helping with nappy rash, stretch marks, sore nipples and even episiotomy scars.
This gentling salve is also great for those very dry flaky areas on your face. Safe enough to use even on eyelids, it will help reduce the redness and irritation often associated with eczema and rosacea
At the Moon Haven cottage we infuse dried calendula petals in pure sunflower oil for several weeks. We then combine the calendula oil with olive oil and local beeswax to make this wonderful skin soothing salve.
How to use Calendula Salve: Apply a small amount to the affected area. Do not overburden your skin with salve- it should be absorbed into your skin within 10 minutes.
Ingredients: Sunflower Oil, Olive Oil, Beeswax, Calendula flower extract, Rosemary Leaf Extract.
I have been using this little tub of amazing ever since I had my first child. I used nothing else on both my kids for nappy rash and had no cause to use any other creams or ointments as this works so well and so fast! Love it and would recommend to any Mum.
