Comforting Calendula Salve
Bright and sunny blooms of calendula flowers are dried and infused into organic extra virgin olive oil to create a beautiful golden oil. To the salve, I have added essential oils of oppopanax and helichrysum for additional benefits to the skin. This salve has skin healing benefits that will help sooth, calm and repair inflamed skin. Some uses for this salve would be good for eczema, skin rash, scrapes and insect bites.
Oppopanax Essential oil: This oil is distilled from a gum resin and has a sweet earthy scent, providing a calming effect. It also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.
Helichrysum Essential Oil: Distilled from flowers of the name, and sometimes also known as Immortal or Everlasting Flower, this oil has a long standing history of treating skin inflammation. It has rejuventating properties that help soothe the skin.
Ingredients: Calendula infused olive oil (Calendula officianalis / Olea europea), Beeswax (Cera alba), Essential oils of oppopanax (Commiphora guidotti)and helchrysum (Helichrysum italicum), Vitamin E
