Calendula Lavender Healing Salve

Happy New Year!!!

I'm starting the new year out with a NEW item at Mary's Herbal Organix.  This is a special item with a special story.

I guess I should start at the beginning.  My sister and her family are adopting a child.  He is a beautiful boy and we are all looking forward to his arrival. But before they can bring him home my sister and her family must raise the funds for the adoptions well as travel expenses.  She has even started a blog which is SUPER exciting!!  You can read about their adoption at Adopt With Us

So what does all of this have to do with Calendula Lavender Healing Salve?  THIS is one of the ways I am contributing to the fundraising process.  I have made small-batch healing salves and made them available in my easy shop Mary's Herbal Organix.
HALF of every purchase of my Calendula Lavender Healing Salve will be donated to the MEYER FAMILY ADOPTION.

About my Calendula Lavender Healing Salve,
Made from all certified organic ingredients in a 4 ounce glass, bpa-free jar. This is not a "regular item" that you'll find in our shop but a very special item produced in small batches. I wanted to create something to help people while at the same time helping my sister and her family raise funds for their upcoming adoption. 

As of 1/1/16 the Meyer Family has raised 30% of the funds necessary to complete their adoption. You can read more about their adoption at Adopt With Us

Made with love, my Calendula Lavender salve is chemical-free, paraben-free, vegan, free of dyes and made with only certified organic ingredients.
Ingredients: coconut oil, olive oil, dried calendula flowers, candellila wax (vegetable based/vegan), Lavender essential oil

I also offer Organic Dry Herbs - Including Calendula - in my shop!
Organic dry Calendula

From Herb Wisdom, "Calendula has been considered beneficial in reducing inflammation and promoting wound healing. It has been used to treat a variety of skin diseases and has been seen effective in treatment of skin ulcerations, eczema, juvenile acne and dry phthiriasis. Improvement has been seen in as little as 3-4 days of treatment according to the Universitatea de Medicina si Farmacie."
"Calendula cream is good for acne and nappy rash. An infusion is good for digestion and relieves colitis and symptoms of menopause. As an anti-fungal agent, it can be used to treat athlete's foot, ringworm, and candida. The tincture applied neat to cold sores encourages healing.
Calendula contains chemicals, which have been shown in animal studies to speed up wound-healing by several actions that include increasing blood flow to the affected area and promoting the production of collagen proteins. Calendula also possesses anti-septic and anti-inflammatory effects due to its flavonoid content. In mouthwashes and gargles, calendula soothes sore throat or mouth tissue; in solutions, it has been uses to treat hemorrhoids.
Compresses of calendula blossoms are helpful for varicose veins. Results from recent animal and laboratory studies show that calendula may also have some anti-infective properties, particularly against fungal infections and against viruses."

It's AMAZING the natural healing properties available in some of the plants we grow.  Calendula is a beautiful flower I grow in my garden every year.  The bees love it and now we know it is beneficial for healing!  I'm thinking about making a Calendula Tincture next! 

If you have additional questions please feel free to ask.  The CALENDULA LAVENDER HEALING SALVE will only be available for a very limited time.
