Perfect balm to heal blisters and bug bites

 Hi All!

I recently ventured back to Yosemite National Park (I'll be posting pics soon), and as anyone is aware, when you're in the great outdoors and hiking long miles and tough terrain,  you're bound to encounter a few itchy bug bites and potentially painful blisters. Thankfully with the help of Bodyceuticals, I was able to soften my skin, and keep it from getting more chafed and irritated on my extensive journey by dabbing on this essential first aid salve with calendula and honey.

What is Calendula?
Calendula is a flower most commonly known as Marigold. The term "marigold" refers to the Virgin Mary, and the flower is often used to honor her during Catholic events.

Egyptians are said to have used the flower for rejuvenating properties.

In as recent as 70 years ago,  American physicians have been said to use Calendula for fevers, cuts, scrapes and minor infections.

The flower, or herb rather, helps reduce pain and can be a very great disinfectant and treatment for minor skin irritations. As in my case, blisters, bug bites and chafing brought on by a lot of walking.

The salve created by Bodyceuticals has honey added to it, right from their very own apiary!
If you're an ingredient reader like myself, you'll want to know everything, so here is a full list of their ingredients:

Extra-virgin, unrefined, first cold-pressed oil from olives grown in volanic soil, whole golden calendula flowers which are Kosher, Organic/wild crafted grown using biodynamic methods, fresh, local organic beeswax, fresh Pacific Northwest honey, high potency vegan, non-GMO d-alpha tocopherol and mixed tocopherol Vitamin E.
