Natural Medicine Kit Essential: Homemade Calendula Salve

Nearing the end of summer, my herb garden is ready for harvest!

A homemade Calendula Salve is a staple in my homemade remedies box.

It is the perfect treatment for chapped hands and faces (such as from winter winds, gardening, or babies’ teething drool), soothing little ones’ scraped knees, or mild burnsClick here to read the rest of the post at Passionate Homemaking today, where I’m sharing my Homemade Calendula Salve recipe!

  • So happy to have found your site. I found it through Passionate Homemaking. I am disabled but my daughter in law is growing herbs for us! It is so fun to learn about them and use them. Thank you for the recipe!
    Love you!

    I found your recipe on Passionate Homemaking and would love to make it. As I have no calendula growing this year, I’d need to purchase the blossoms. Mountain Rose Herbs sells 4 oz of them but there’s no indication of how much that is! Do you know how many ounces of petals are in 2 cups? (I assume one measurement is weight and the other volume.) And would I use less of the dried flowers than fresh? Thanks!

    Hi, Carol,
    You get a lot of calendula in their 4 oz bags (maybe 4-6 cups?) :)

    Thanks!
