Calendula (aka Marigold) is a wonderful anti-inflammatory and is great for sun burn, eczema or heat rash. This soothing balm is very easy to make, and wonderful to use during the summer months on dry patches or shoulders that have had a little too much sun. Lavender oil in one of the ingredients of this salve as it is also an anti-inflammatory and excellent for soothing skin. It is lovely to apply this remedy to your skin at bedtime after a bath to help you get a restful sleep. Made with cacao butter to give it a lovely chocolatey scent!
