Calendula Healing Hand Salve

Nancy Desjardins

My hands took a beating in the garden last weekend, and the salve was super-helpful. You'll love it.  Last summer, I grew lots of calendula (marigold) flowers in my garden. I add them in my salad, make fresh tea and picked the rest to be dried.  I made my first batch of calendula salve this weekend. I'm happy with the result. Great moisturizer for dry skin and for severely chapped or split skin.

He had just purchased a drone, so we were his first project! He took some nice aerial shots of the Cottage/Garden.
