When searching for natural, alternative ways to soothe skin, you’ve likely come across numerous products, such as herbal salves, that contain calendula. But why is it so special?
Calendula is a very well-known and highly praised plant with many benefits. It is well known and documented to have antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties that provide many benefits, especially to the skin.
Calendula is often used as a natural, alternative treatment for many issues that involve the skin. It is a gentle, soothing, and nourishing plant.
In this article, you’ll find the top 3 benefits of calendula for your skin and we’re proud to offer our versatile Calendula Salve as the perfect natural balm to use for any of the issues listed below, plus many more!
It’s made of 100% natural, organic ingredients including calendula, but also grapeseed oil and beeswax to help soothe and nourish your skin naturally.
One of the most common ways that people use calendula is for irritated, tender skin because of its skin-soothing properties. Although the plant is soothing and gentle, it’s also a very powerful plant to use when you have a wound on your skin.
One of the ways it helps is through its high amount of flavonoids which can reduce inflammation and support our skin's natural healing stages. It can work well for many issues from itchy bug bites to burns, bruises, and blisters.
During the summer, calendula can also be helpful in soothing sunburns and may actually help guard you from the sun as well.
While dry skin doesn’t usually sound that bad, it can be extremely uncomfortable especially if it’s a long-term issue. Luckily, calendula is useful in soothing painful, uncomfortable dry skin and even helps those who want to lessen the trouble of itchy skin.
While there are creams and lotions, even some that need a prescription, to help with these types of skin irritations and dryness, the benefit of using calendula is that there are no harsh chemicals or ingredients involved.
In a similar fashion, parents who are more natural-minded will often find calendula in natural diaper rash products making our Calendula Salve helpful for this as well.
Scars can be pretty difficult to get rid of once they’ve developed. Most of us just accept that we will get scars and they will become a permanent part of our appearance. However, one lesser-known benefit of calendula is that it has the ability to reduce the appearance of scars.
So while it might not help with old scars, making sure that you use calendula on new scars can help reduces the severity of the scars that are left behind.
This scar reduction property of calendula can be carried over to breakout scars, pock scars, and other types of skin troubles or breaks in the skin that are known to leave a scar.
While there are a variety of wonderful health benefits to using calendula, the above skin-soothing benefits are what calendula is known for. Having a calendula salve on hand can help anytime you need something soothing and nourishing for your skin.
