Ingredients include: Calendula Infused Olive Oil, Avocado Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Local Beeswax, Jojoba, Vitamin E, Neem Oil, Tea Tree Oil, South African Lavender Essential oil, Roman Chamomile Essential Oil
I was inspired to make this salve because my beloved one year old nephew has had struggled with eczema and sensitive skin. I researched healing salves and the best ingredients for dry, itchy, inflamed skin, and developed this recipe. Even if you do not have eczema, you will find this to be a wonderfully soothing and healing salve for dry skin that needs some extra TLC. I am a RN and find it to be helpful with all the frequent hand washing and hand sanitizer use that was drying out my skin. This salve is deeply hydrating and nourishing and works well on cuts, scratches, stings, burns and skin irritations. Calendula is a true medicinal flower with magical properties.
I started with infusing Organic Calendula flowers in Olive Oil on my sunny Arizona windowsill. This is blended with Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Beeswax, Jojoba, Vitamin E and blended with Neem Oil, Tea Tree Oil, South African Lavender, Roman Chamomile, a smidge of Bergamot and and poured into a beautiful amber glass jar. This is a soothing blend and I have been using it myself, as I am a nurse and am frequently washing my hands. Lavender, Bergamot Tea Tree and Chamomile have natural anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and healing properties.
**As with any new product you are using, it is advised to first try a small amount on your skin to ensure you do not have any sensitivities to any of the ingredients**
Calendula oil is a natural oil extracted from marigold flowers (Calendula officinalis). Calendula oil has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.
Jojoba oil is extracted form a desert shrub and is the closest oil that resembles human sebum. It is very emollient and soothing.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce free radical damage and slow the aging process of the cells.
Some facts about Neem Oil:
It is an all natural, plant derived oil that is known to have many beneficial properties that are useful and desired in skin care -- it is Antivital, Antifungal, Antibacterial, Analgesic (providing pain relief), Anti-inflammatory, Antimicrobial.
Neem oil has a long history of use in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. Neem oil derives from the fruits and seeds of the neem tree. These trees grow mainly in the Indian subcontinent.
Neem oil is rich in fatty acids, such as palmitic, linoleic, and oleic acids, which help support healthy skin. The oil is, therefore, a popular ingredient in skin care products.
The leaf of the plant also provides health benefits. The leaves contain plant compounds called flavonoids and polyphenols, which have antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.
This is a 2 oz jar of salve. Keep in a cool, dry place. It will melt if left outside in the heat.
For external use only.
To have the longest life from your salve, please keep away from heat and out of the sun or it will begin to soften and melt. If this does happen, place in a cool area and it will again harden. I keep mine in the fridge in the summer and it is nice and cooling.
