This balm is meant to sooth dry, cracked skin. I personally use on my feet every night at bedtime.
Ingredients include: Calendula Flower, Yarrow Leaf and Comfrey Leaf, olive oil and beeswax.
Calendula is reportedly used as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. The oil and blossom extract are used for skin conditions and to tone delicate skin. Calendula is a soothing and healing herb, often used in ointments for leg ulcers, varicose veins, bedsores and bruises. Take infusion to aid digestion. Calendula oil is made from maceration and is healing and rejuvenating. Soothes inflammations and is non toxic to babies. Calendula is one of the main ingredients in my “Baby Balm.” Properties include: Carotene, Calenduline, Lycopine, Saponin, Resin and Essential Oil
Comfrey is used against gastritis and ulceration of the stomach. Has been known to speed up the healing of broken bones, pulled muscles and ligaments. Also, eases lung disorders. It heals skin conditions and is one of the main ingredients in my “Baby Balm”.

Yarrow is good for wounds, chapped skin and rashes.
