Calendula is a well known folk remedy used to promote rapid healing of cuts and minor injuries. With anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties, use calendula to protect wounds against infections, stop bleeding and encourage healing.
Add calendula petals to soaps, bath mixes and poultices, or, infuse calendula into your favourite carrier oil for use in creams and lotions. Looking for a great first aid kit addition? Make your own calendula salve!
