A Wonderfully Helpful Creme To Have Handy At All Times!
very helpful product!
The Bottom Line:
I keep it on hand at all times.
Calendula Cream is a homopathic first aid product that alleviates redness in burns, scrapes or minor skin irritations. Calendula Cream is excellent as a beauty product for dry itchy skin and as a beauty product for cuticles while manicuring your nails and for your feet during a pedicure treatment.
Unlike messy ointments and some messy cremes, Calendula Cream goes right into the skin of minor cuts and scrapes but lets the skin hydrate so it can breathe and heal. This product is made from dried petals of the Calendula plant found in Europe and the United States.
A good friend of mine has a daughter whose little toddler developed a bad diaper rash. The baby's doctor prescribed an ointment that didn't seem to work either. She tried many many remedies in the forms of cremes and ointments and even old-fashioned cornstarch but nothing gave the little girl any relief. She even left the diaper off to try to air the portion that was infected.
Her last resort was vitamin E oil she got at a health food store of which she broke the capsules to let the oil leak out on the baby's bottom. When that failed, she was back to the little one's pediatrician again who then prescribed another ointment that also didn't work.
She then took the advice of a local midwife she met in a pharmacy who told her to try regular first aid creme, any kind. She did so and the results were amazing.
She happened to pick up Calendula Cream I belive in a department store and bingo! It almost instantly got rid of the redness associated with bad diaper rash. And that was in a matter of hours! Baby was down to a whimper or two and then dry-eyed little Haley was all smiles. Her bottom was on the way to being completely cleared of that mean old diaper rash. And the next day it was!
Candace, my friend's daughter uses this cream also for a heriditery eczema she developed as a young teenager. She broke out on her hands all of the time and through 7 years she had been to many dermatologists and nothing ever worked. Not even the faithful Bag Balm a friend suggested she purchase and try for a few days. Calendula Cream keeps her eczema in control.
Now this wonderful company still makes the old fashioned Calendula Cream and she is completely satisfied. They also make California Baby Calendula Creme just meant for baby's skin. That is good for cradle cap and many many of the same uses the regular old fashioned Calendula Creamrelieves.
I myself use the regular Calendula Cream to help my own mild hand eczema. I wish I had known about it when my hands had extemely bad eczema years ago. I could have saved a lot of frustration and pain and also money!
I keep this on hand in case of emergency. It is a wonderful all purpose cream. One can even use it on the face as well as the body. I highly recommend it. The company does no testing on animals in the making of this wonderfully useful product.
