I have harvested this year's crop of calendula, petals from the flowers are very antiseptic and healing, used for millenia for medicinal and ceremonial purposes.

and aren't they beautiful?

I will be making my vervain soap this season with added calendula petals.

Calendula has tonic and antispasmodic properties, but it is mainly used for skin care and treatment. It has great anti-inflammatory action, making it helpful with stubborn wounds, acne, ulcers, bed sores, varicose veins, rashes, eczema, and related conditions, helping soothe sore, inflamed, and itchy skin conditions.

Combining the skin healing properties of calendula with soothing vervain - the perfect combination!

Look for this season's soaps starting the beginning of November.
