MJ’s Herbals Calendula Salve Review

Calendula Salve


Review of dreamy salve #2, and go!

Ingredients (provided at mjsherbals.com)- “Calendula blossoms* and real vitamin E (d-alpha tocopherol) in a base of olive oil* and unrefined propolis beeswax. *Certified Organic”

The preliminary report I created for this product in the Cosmetics Database gives it a lower than low hazard score of zero.Hoorah!

Some great things about this product:

1. It’s free of parabens, pesticide residues, phenoxyethanol, petrochemicals, fragrance, and any other nasty ingredients you might wish to avoid.

2. Full size products come in  1 oz. non-reactive glass containers, with metal tops so the packaging is reusable, recyclable, and portable.

Product Description(provided at mjsherbals.com)- “Calendula salve is an exceptionally effective remedy for inflamed skin, slow healing wounds, skin ulcers, and irritations. Although calendula salve is strong in action, it is gentle on the skin and ideal for baby skin care needs. Feel the healing power of these beautiful golden blossoms!

Lavender E Salve, Calendula Salve, First Aid Salve, and Breast Balm can all be used on any part of your lovely epidermis without worry. All MJ’s Herbal Salves are non-irritating, safe, free of pesticides, chemicals, fragrance, (only pure organic essential oils are used).”

Price-$12.99 for a 1 oz. concentrate.

Performance-I’ve been on the verge of getting a cold for the past week or so, and my most annoying symptom by far has been my runny nose. I’ve been carrying a wad of tissue in my pocket everywhere (like a mawmaw), and that’s not even the worst of it. All the nose-blowing has made the outside of my nostrils dry, sore and irritated. I finally wised up and turned to this salve for relief a couple of days ago, and it was an excellent decision on my part. The skin felt and looked significantly better within thirty minutes of application! With consistent success, I’ve also been using this salve on razor burn the occasional dark mark left by a slow-healing blemish.  It soothes the former and speeds the healing of the latter.

Scent– The smell is mild and sweet. It reminds me of honey.

Rating-I can’t imagine why this salve would deserve anything lower than a 10.

Would I purchase this item again? Oh yeah!

All of MJ’s marvelous salves can be purchased through the MJ’s Herbals website.
