Calendula Healing Hand Salve

Nancy Desjardins

My hands took a beating in the garden last weekend, and the salve was super-helpful. You'll love it.  Last summer, I grew lots of calendula (marigold) flowers in my garden. I add them in my salad, make fresh tea and picked the rest to be dried.  I made my first batch of calendula salve this weekend. I'm happy with the result. Great moisturizer for dry skin and for severely chapped or split skin.

The atmosphere is totally different up here. And, as you know, I love working in the garden. Our son Jesse, who now lives in Australia, came down this summer to spend some time with us. He had just purchased a drone, so we were his first project! He took some nice aerial shots of the Cottage/Garden.
