Homemade Calendula Balm

With Spring finally here, the bugs have been out in full force here in Arkansas. Add to the fact that springtime projects have started means bites, scrapes, and cuts are inevitable. One of my favorite things to keep on hand for such minor injuries is my Homemade Calendula Balm. The Calendula helps to soothe the skin and has anti-bacterial properties to help cuts and scrapes heal.

How To Make Homemade Calendula Balm

Making Calendula Balm is fairly easy and quick to do. It is one of the reasons I love to make it and sell it at our local farmer’s markets. This balm can be customized with different oils and scents to make it your own!

The most important part of adding calendula into your balms, or even your soaps or lotions is to make sure you infuse your oils with it very well. You will also want to make sure that you are using dried calendula to avoid mold forming. I like to 1 part dried calendula to 3 parts oil and let it sit for a few weeks. If you do not have a few weeks, you can always heat up your oil and let the dried flowers steep for a few hours. homemade calendula balm
