Calendula salve…

Calendula pedals being infused in cold pressed olive oil

I finally got around to making my calendula salve. Great for dry skin, minor cuts/burns, and rashes. My daughter has been itching the side of her head so I wanted to find something as natural as possible to apply there since she likes to put her hands in her mouth at all times. I found this recipe at Delightful homemaking blog online. What I liked about it was that it had simple ingredients, smooth consistency, and smelled good. 

Calendula  pedals infused in cold pressed olive oil for 2 weeks out in the sun, beeswax, lavender essential oil.
