Calendula Salve is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve skin inflammations and irritations to aid in wound healing.
Made from certified organically grown calendula flowering tops infused in a base of extra-virgin olive oil and beeswax, our Calendula Salve comes from nature’s storehouse of elegantly simple healing solutions for the skin. This salve is a companion product to our Calendula Oil, from which it differs only in that it includes beeswax, which gives it a stiffer consistency, allowing for a different range of options when it comes to application.
Research indicates that calendula has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties as well as being anti-inflammatory. This classic herb also enhances the antimicrobial action of the body’s white blood cells.
Our herbal ingredients are Certified Organic/Organic/Wildcrafted. Formulated with organic preservatives. Paraben free.
Rich in phytonutrient compounds, olive oil is the centrepiece of a healthful Mediterranean diet, which has been conclusively correlated with a lower incidence of a remarkably broad range of diseases.
Plant pharmacological studies have suggested that Calendula extracts may have anti-viral, anti-genotoxic, and anti-inflammatory properties in vitro.In an in vitro assay, the methanol extract of C. officinalis exhibited antibacterial activity and both the methanol and the ethanol extracts showed antifungal activities. Along with horsetails (Equisetum arvense), pot marigold is one of the few plants which is considered astringent despite not being high in tannins.
