Calendula Salve DIY Ointment

Calendula Salve – DIY All Natural Healing Cream.

Calendula is such an amazing natural healer. This salve can be used for treating wounds, deep cuts, eczema, acne, bites and stings, damaged skin, burns, frostbite, slow healing or infected wounds, bedsores, boils, wrinkles, sensitive skin, baby bum rashes and SO much more.

Calendula is known for it’s anti-inflammatory, antibiotic and regrowth of new skin tissue abilities.

This Calendula salve (which is much more of an ointment) can be used on it’s own, massaged into skin issues, or along with a wrap, or bandage. (See here for Calendula Tea)

Calendula Salve DIY Ointment

What You’ll Need:

  • Airtight Jar or Tin
  • Melting Pot
  • Stir Stick (chopsticks work well)

I didn’t add beeswax to this batch as I am keeping it in the fridge so it will stay solid without a hardening wax but you can add 1 tsp of Beeswax or Carnauba wax if you like the mixture to be a little more firm.

  • Melt Coconut Oil and combine it with equal parts of  Calendula infused oil. (I used 2 tbs of each)
  • Mix well and poor into your storage container.
  • Pop into the fridge to allow it to solidify. (It will melt out of the fridge if you didn’t add beeswax.) This mixture is nice and soft and melts well on the skin.

Apply ointment several times a day to the affected area.

It’s best to keep your salve in the fridge in an airtight container. Not only will it keep longer, the cool temperature will be extra soothing.

If you didn’t add in any beeswax or essential oils, this recipe makes for an amazing Oil Pulling Method. I also use this for an all over face neck and chest moisturizer, it’s been resurfacing some of my scarring and evening out the imperfections. You can also check out our post on Calendula Tea for further healing of wounds, acne and more.
