Calendula is one of those extracts to keep in your home farmacopiea for it's tremendous healing properties. Due to it's anti-microbial properties in conjunction to the anti-inflammatory response, calendula is a powerful aid to any cut, wound, infection or burn when applied topically.

After exposure to sunlight, calendula soothes the skin and helps heal sunburns more quickly.
