Today is the last day of November (already!)--it's that time of year where we need to think about holiday gifts--and what better than a useful, homemade gift? Calendula salve is easy to make once your calendula petals have infused in oil and it makes a wonderful herbal salve. As a gardener, I use it regularly, however it is great for chapped lips, hands and dry skin and it is gentle enough to be used in preparations for babies. Give a gift that will be appreciated and used--this one is thoughtful, homemade and healing! ]]>
