Calendula is an herb also known as Pot Marigold, but not the same plant as your garden annual marigolds.

Valuable as both an all-purpose healing salve for minor wound care or rashes, this balm is also ideal for sore breasts and nipples due to breastfeeding. Another salve in the shop is our Healing Balm which contains calendula and comfrey, both great for healing, but I doubt your baby would appreciate the taste of comfrey should some residue remain behind and he/she gets a taste while nursing. A nice way to describe the smell of comfrey oil is very "green" or earthy.

Apply as needed and wipe off excess before nursing. Calendula, olive oil, beeswax and vit. E are safe if some residue gets ingested by baby.
It is always best to check with your physician before using an herbal product.

In ancient times, flowers that followed the sun by opening and closing according to the solar progression were called "brides of the sun". A member of the compositae family, Calendula was one of these sacred flowers symbolizing life and deliverance.

If you discovered this listing in your search, then you are probably already aware of this beneficial plant.
Etsy's rules concerning alternative remedies prohibit explaining the listing or plant properties in any detail. For that, I apologize for the inconvenience, but if interested in further information of the benefits of these herbs and their use in a salve, please message me.


Calendula is a wonderful ally in treating your pet for not only wounds but to help clear up those frustrating problems with our pets' skin. The challenge with using any salve on an animal is keeping it there long enough to do its job before being licked clean. This herbal balm contains nothing that would harm your pet if ingested. Though your mommy dog may just lick it off, it is worth a shot in using for nursing dogs as well.


Balm is available in a choice of a 1/2 oz 1 oz 2 oz. or 4 oz. size plastic jar.
