Calendula is St. Francis Herb Farm's premier herb for healing and nourishing skin. Calendula Cream is made with the flowering tops of calendula infused in Extra-Virgin olive oil along with aloe vera, myrrh and vitamin E, to treat cuts, abrasions, or surface wounds; bedsores, leg ulcers, or other open sores; varicose veins or venous congestion; diaper rash; and dry, cracked, or chapped heels, hands, skin or lips; and it can also be applied to bruises and sprains. Some of its virtues are that it's antiseptic, so it kills bacteria and prevents pus from forming; it helps scar tissue form in the simplest way possible, without contracting tissues; it hastens wound healing; it relieves the pain in wounds; and if it's not a really bad bruise, it quickly relieves the soreness and helps the healing process.
This specially formulated cream combines ingredients best-suited to reinforce calendula's healing properties. Aloe vera adds immune-enhancing, antibacterial, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory and moisturizing qualities; myrrh also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties and has similarly been traditionally used for wounds and abrasions; and Vitamin E is an antioxidant, to help stabilize and repair cell membranes and reduce oedema and erythema.
