Uses for Calendula Salve
Calendula salve works its magic by promoting cell repair and growth, coupled with its natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Apply calendula salve to irritated or dry skin, including on rashes, bites, wounds, stings, acne, scrapes, bruises or swelling, burns (including sunburn), cold sores, chapped lips, cracked cuticles, rough elbows and feet, or dry hands for general moisture. Calendula is known to help ease eczema and psoriasis, and also safely soothe cradle cap and diaper rash. I find it very soothing after shaving, to prevent or treat razor burn. Last but not least, calendula salve can also lessen the appearance of varicose veins and soften scars.

The calendula used in this recipe is organically homegrown. We harvest whole flower heads daily at their peak freshness (and highest medicinal content) and dry them “low and slow” – on a living foods setting and never exceeding 105’F. Whole dry flower heads are then steeped in high-quality certified organic oils (described below) over several weeks using the solar infusion method. The highest concentration of medicinal resins are found in the green bud of the flower, not only the petals – whole flower is best!
This salve is created with calendula-infused organic sweet almond and organic sunflower oil. Sweet Almond Oil is a powerful moisturizer for dry and sensitive skin, including baby skin. It works to reduce excess sebum, inflammation, scars, dryness, eczema, and acne. Sweet almond oil can also lighten skin tone, dark circles, and support an even complexion. Sunflower oil is great for both dry, irritated skin or oily, acne-prone skin alike. It is gentle, lightweight, and will not clog pores. It is also highly moisturizing and healing, high in Vitamin E and oleic acid (omega 9 fatty acid) that provide natural antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It easily absorbs into the skin to lock in moisture, soothe and soften skin.

I purchased the calendula salve from Deanna back in July, I see the love she puts into her products from building her soil she grows her plants in up until harvest & infusion. I trust her wholeheartedly and I wish I could post pictures of the before and after pictures since using her calendula infused salve on my body. As someone with psoriasis from scalp to toes I’m grateful for the times when I’m not inflamed. Deanna has helped with that with her salves 🙏🏼 Thank you for all you do D, keep working your magic girl!

Bought this with the lavender salve. I had no experience with calendula. First, the smell is amazing! The salve is light and absorbs nicely. I randomly had a rash pop up on my face and within two applications it was gone. Will buy again!

If I could give this Calendula Salve 10 stars, I would! I’m new to trying natural options so needless to say, I took what Deanna said about this salve with a grain of salt…I would let the product do the talking. Testimony; fast forward to a mosquito bite on my wrist (I suffer from skeeter syndrome…horrible swelling and pain,) carpal tunnel flaring up when PMS hits…I was barely able to use my hand! I grabbed the Calendula Salve that night and liberally massaged it onto the affected area a few times before bed (about every 30 minutes.) First of all, it helped calm the itching immediately. Secondly, by the time I woke up the next morning, my severe pain/aching/swelling diminished by 75%!! I applied more a few more times the rest of the day…by day two I was almost completely healed. I’m so grateful for this quality product and I love seeing Deanna and her husband work on their passion!

This salve is hands down the best I’ve experienced for rough, dry skin and also was great in helping heal a skin abrasion. Great small business with super information on all things garden.

I was one of the lucky ones to be able to purchase this salve and it is amazing. The salve itself, the natural fragrance and the packaging were all top notch. I can’t wait to purchase more for my friends and family for gifts at the holiday. I also have to mention that Deanna went above and beyond when the post office lost my order. Good customer service is hard to come by, so that was greatly appreciated. Thanks Deanna!

I have never ordered a homemade salve before, thus far I can tell you that this Calendula Salve not only smells soft and comforting but it works better than Cortizone on my bug bites (which I have tons of every summer)! I will be ordering again and recommending this to all of my friends! Thank you!!!

I have struggled since 2014 with skin irritations of an unknown cause. According to my latest doctor’s visit, it’s suspected to be severe allergic reactions to foods. When I found out Calendula Salve was coming, I knew I HAD to have it. Calendula is excellent for these major skin rashes I get every year, but it’s hard to find. I am so thankful for Homestead & Chill’s salve. Normally, my scarring takes nearly a year to go away following a major rash episode, but using this salve just a couple times a week has made it almost hard to see. I can’t wait to buy more!

I bought both salves and am very happy! It arrived quickly and they both have light pleasing scents.
After having shingles, the area of the rash has continued to be irritable especially when I am stressed. This is the only topical that has helped since the original rash, 4 years ago. I use them interchangeably for that area and am very happy with the results!
I keep the lavender salve by my bed to help me relax (rub a bit on my temples and wrists) as well as for soothing bug bites in summer also. Love this salve!!
Thank you Deanna for this masterful work of love. This salve smell so so good, such a soft natural fragrance. The texture is smooth and not oily. I am an gardener, that enjoys gardening barefoot and bare handed, as you can imagine that makes my skin rougher. This salve has been the salvation of my hands and feet, there is definitely a noticeable improvement already. Excellent product, I highly recommend it!

Thrilled with this salve! After watching Deanna grow, harvest, and make this salve from scratch with her lovely calendula blossoms I had to purchase it. It has lived up to my internal hype and exceeded my expectations. As a fellow gardener and one who lives in an area with low relative humidity, my battered hands are thoroughly enjoying this lovely salve. It’s light, absorbs quickly, and has the most delightful subtle scent. Will absolutely keep this one well stocked. Thank you Deanna & Aaron
