In september I harvested all my calendula flowers and started the process for making a salve. I wrote a post
then explaining how to make the infused calendula oil so here is the finish to that post. After 2 months of soaking my calendula flowers in oil it was time to use the potent and delicious smelling oil. Just in time for Christmas! Calendula salve is traditionally used to soothe and heal mild burns, bruises, cuts and rashes. But in the summer I use salve a lot to help nourish my thirsty skin from gardening and sun!
