Calendula


My favorite way to use calendula is in an infused olive oil which I then turn into a simple salve. Sometimes I add a drop of lavender essential oil, but it does just fine on its own, plus I am a bigger fan of using whole herbs rather than concentrated oils. Typically safe for all ages - even babies! - just be sure there are no allergies to calendula before using.
