Last fall I harvested
and dried calendula petals
with the idea they would make pretty soap.
Also because calendula is said to have anti inflammatory properties.
My mom really struggles with arthritis
and I was hoping this soap might help her.
It not only has the calendula petals sprinkled on top
but infused in the oils and some mixed in
She’ll be able to try it in a few weeks. Once it has cured. I’ll also have some in my shop if you’d like to try a bar. I’m calling it Hello Sunshine.
Soaping is so much fun! This bar is gorgeous!
calendula is a lovely flower – we'll have a batch of them growing in our front yard.
a couple of anti inflammatory items are:
turmeric (capsule form) i find it at walmart.
and of course glucosamine tablets (costco)
works for me…
