Cooling chickweed/calendula cream

by Johanna Good
(Novato, CA)

This is based on Rosalee's Herbal Healing Cream Recipe

0.7 oz. beeswax
0.9 oz. coconut oil
0.7 oz. shea butter
1/2 cup chickweed oil (in sweet almond oil)
1/4 cup calendula oil (in sunflower oil)
2 tbls. jojoba oil
1/3 cup lavender hydrosol
1/3 cup aloe vera juice
30 drops helichrysum essential oil

Preparation is the same as Rosalee's recipe.

I made this to use on my face after a skin cancer therapy called photodynamic therapy. The treatment left my face red, inflamed, burning, and then peely and itchy. This cream feels very luxurious, soothing and healing. I think it would make a great diaper rash cream too!
