DIY: Calendula Salve Homemade Body Care | Use For Dry Skin Cuts & Eczema


With it being winter and the weather being cold, harsh and dry my skin is raw, rough and dry. 
I also suffer from the occasional patch of eczema so this time of year my skin can feel very uncomfortable. I've tried so many different lotions and cremes over the years. And homemade simple ingredent products always do great on my skin.

Calendula has great benefits for your skin. It hydrates and nourishes skin, helps to slow the appearance of wrinkles. Calendula is also antibacterial, antifungal, and has anti-inflammatory properties.


Ingredients :

Calendula oil 

1 Cup Jojoba Oil (or any carrier oil you like)

Dried Calendula flowers, fill 3/4 a mason jar with flowers

Cover dried flowers with oil and let sit for 6-8 weeks, in a cool dark place


Strain out flowers into cheesecloth , collecting oil in a measuring cup or bowl.

6-8 tablespoons Beeswax 

2 tablespoons Shea butter

Using a double broiler or placing a glass mixing bowl atop a pan with water.

Pour your calendula infused oil into bowl, add in beeswax and shea butter. Over medium heat allow for the mixture to melt. It takes a little time to get the beeswax to melt. Just keep an eye on the mixture stirring once in awhile. 

Optional: If you'd like you can add an essential oil for fragrance. You'll do this once the mixture has melted

Once everything has melted pour mixture into tin containers. And let cool. 

Salve stays fresh for 1 year

If you make this for yourself let me know how you like it.
