Calendula & Violet Soothing Salve
Nikki says: "OMG - this is just AMAZING"
A targeted herbal salve for dry, irritated, and flaky skin. Sweet Violet, the key botanical ingredient, effectively delivers a nutrient hit to the skin, while soothing dryness and other skin complaints.
Shy Sweet Violet is an unassuming little plant, but don't be fooled, because her leaves are loaded with nutrients that offer a wide range of healing benefits. Sweet violet is naturally anti-inflammatory and so can be helpful for those with eczema and other dry skin conditions. It can help to soften hard skin like corns, warts and calluses, and can be useful for healing acne, spots, and wounds that won't heal. It is even used in natural skin cancer therapies.
Organically-grown Calendula flowers, harvested from our own Herb Garden, are known for their antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, so are useful for reducing skin irritations. Calendula helps to stimulate the body’s immune system to fight off infection. It rapidly promotes the healing and repair of skin tissues, is anti-inflammatory, and minimises scar formation. Useful for skin problems like eczema, psoriasis and nappy rash. It’s also great for those with dry and chapped skin, as it helps to renew and rebuild skin cells.
Locally-sourced Oats have high anti-inflammatory, skin healing and anti-oxidant properties. Because they are rich in proteins and lipids oats have excellent emollient properties, making them great for moisturising. They are also rich in anti-oxidants which help reduce the damage to your skin by pollution, UV rays and chemicals. And owing to their healing, moisturising and anti-oxidant properties, oats help to reduce itching and inflammation, can be used to calm eczema and heal psoriasis, and are effective in soothing sunburn.
Massage into skin morning and evening to maintain healthy, clear skin. Alternatively, use as a “spot treatment” to quickly soothe dry patches and flair-ups.
