Making Your Own Calendula Ointment

Author: Stuart Michael M

Flowers are not just there for decoration. It can also be used for healing and creating natural remedies just like the Calendula. This flora actually has a high amount of anti-oxidants called flavonoids which can help your skin be protected from free radicals. Moreover, it also promotes wound healing and promoting dry skin at the same time. Below are the steps to follow if you would like to make your own calendula ointment.

·         Get at least half a cup of dried petals of calendula and put it aside in a small bowl.

·         Melt at least 10 ounce of vegetable shortening then add a tablespoon of beeswax. If you can't find a vegetable shortening, ask for the Cream C since it is more popular in this name.

·         To create your DIY calendula, put in the petals to the Cream C and beeswax mixture. Just let the petals immerse in the said mixture. Press the petals at the sides of the saucepan so you would let loose of the natural properties that are present in the flower.

·         Let it cool and repeat the procedure again and again until the petals are already crumbled.

·         Prepare a small clean jar. Make sure that it is completely dry before pouring in the mixture.

Beat Eczema

·         Let it cool before placing the lid or any cover at the jar.

Once the calendula ointment has already cooled down, you may now start using it on your skin. Lather it gently on areas affected by skin irritation, eczema, psoriasis and many others. And since this is remedy made from 100 percent natural ingredients, you can even use it on kids whenever they get insect bites. This would prevent them from itching and scratching the bite. Those who have dry feet can also lather the DIY calendula at night and cover it using a sock as well.

    My baby is 3 months old soon to be 4 and I believe he has eczema what is the best thing to do?
    I’ve been using the Gentle Naturals Baby Eczema Cream with aloe and calendula for a few weeks now im not sure if its gotten any better. Is this good and is it sumthing better or sumthin that will make him more comfortable because he cries when I rub it on, not so sure why either? Also I’ve started givin him the stage 1 applesauce and sweet potatoes could this be a reason for the breakouts?

      COOLER THAN HOT OATMEAL BATHS WITH REAL OATMEAL NOT THE PHARMACY PRODUCTS FOR BATHS. AVOID SOAPS THEY ARENT GOOD THEY WASH ALL OIL AWAY.MILK BATHS ARE GOOD ALONG WITH THE OATMEAL. CALENDULA IS GOOD IN OINTMENTS AND CREAMS..PRIMROSE OIL TOO ITS ALL TRIAL AND ERROR WHAT WORKS FOR AWHILE MIGHT NOT WORK LATER. wHAT WORKS FOR ONE PERSON MAY NOT WORK FOR YOU BUT WITH A BABY I WOULD USE ALL NATURAL PRODUCTS ALWAYS

    Has anyone tried using California Baby cream for ECZEMA RASH ON THE FACE?
    I have mild eczema on my face, more obvious on my cheeks. The kind that is pinkish-red patchy flat rash.

    I’d like to know can using moisturizer alone clear off the pinkish-red patchy flat rash? Because I really, really don’t want to use hydrocortisone cream or any other steroid creams anymore, people who have eczema will know why. :(

    Also, I came across this site that has reviews on this cream called,
    “California Baby Calendula Cream”

    http://international.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=54802&catid=47477&crpg=3&tab=1#1

    It’s rated 4.5 out of 5 stars based on 44 users and their reviews on this product. 90% of them commented that the cream cleared off rash problems like cradle crap, eczema rash on face etc. Even some adults commented that they have facial eczema rash, perioral dermatitis, dry skin etc used this product and has worked wonders in healing their skin.

    The other 10% said it made it worse.

    I also don’t want to use moisturizer cream that contains petroleum, mineral oil, or paraffin, I had bad experience from those stupid ingredients. That’s why now I’m thinking if I should try leaning to the natural side like California Baby’s product. Has anyone of you tried the product?

    • Cait Z says:

      yes, the california baby line is great for eczema and chronic dry skin- the cream you mentioned is great..I find that the “Soothing and Healing” spray for sunburn and dry skin works really well..I mix a little bottled water with the lotion spray as the spray can be a little sticky- definitely try this – I think you will be pleasantly surprised and relieved

    my toddlers eczema is out of control…please help?
    The doctor has given me numerous eczema creams and lotions and I have tried numerous all natural products and lotions, such as California Baby Calendula Cream, but nothing is working right now. He is 33 months and is experiencing the worst break out he has ever had. I usually use all free and clear for all of our clothes but I bought a free and clear clothes whitener to use and he had a reaction to it. Now his legs from mid calf down to the tops of his feet and his arms from the elbows down to the tops of his hands, as well as under his little eyes are red, dry patchy swollen spots. I hate that he has to deal with all this itchy sore spots. I gave him some Zyrtec which usually helps when his skin has a reaction but this time it didn’t. What has worked for your kids or your eczema flare ups?
    Oh yes he is allergic to peanuts but not deathly allergic, it does give him a terrible rash so we don’t get anywhere near it. Citrus fruits and tomatos aggrevate his eczema as well.

      The poor little guy. Have you looked into upping his diet in Omega 3′s or a supplement. Google eczema and omega 3. We’ve actually had better luck using crisco – the shortening – than anything prescribed, such that tri-something, tri-cyclerline – I forget.

    What to put on eczema?
    I have extremely sever eczema on my stomach and I have tried all things I have looked up.
    Does anyone have any ideas of what I could put on it, preferably natural? I have tried green tea, Calendula cream and some medicated creams and nothing seems to do the job! The skin is very raw and sometimes bleeds from cracking so much. Thankyou, and please no trolling =]

    • sawtooth_honey says:

      I had pretty bad eczema that wouldn’t respond to anything. Then I found the miracle of coconut oil. Coconut oil is a solid until it hits 72 degrees. It has antibiotic properties to help heal any underlying infection. And it moisturizes like nothing else. You can find it in the oil aisle near the olive oil. Just put it directly on the skin from the jar and you’ll notice a difference in days. Good luck to you!
