Calendula is a variety of Marigold that has been prized for its healing properties since ancient times. Rich in high-molecular weight polysaccharides, Calendula naturally promotes and stimulates the body’s immune system when ingested or applied to the skin. Calendula is such a powerful topical analgesic that I recommend using this salve wherever you have painful inflammation or swelling. At KV Apothecary, I developed this corrective salve for the treatment of many common skin conditions including: cuts, scrapes, bug bites, bruises, relief from eczema, acne, and even warts. Apply evenly over effected area and let stand without covering.
