1 ounce beeswax
3/4 Cup Olive Oil
1/2 Cup dried Calendula flowers
A piece of muslin cloth or a strainer with fine mesh

Remedy Recipe:

1. Infuse (soak) the Calendula flowers in 3/4 cup olive oil for 14 days.
2. Strain the oil very well into a container.
3. Add 1 ounce of beeswax to the oil mixture and mix well.
4. Once mixed you can divide the salve into small jars/tins with a lid and place one in your purse, bathroom, kitchen, and etc. Or just place salve in one large jar with a lid.

Keep covered and apply a thin layer to affected areas several times a day.

  • A very thin layer of Calendula Salve may also be applied and very gently massaged into areas of the skin suffering from varicose veins. Calendula salve is thought to promote circulation when massaged into the skin, reducing and preventing the appearance of varicose veins.
