Kat's Calendula Salve
This is an all-purpose, gentle salve that is suitable for healing:
Winter burned skin and lips, diaper rash, scrapes, scratches, razor burn, sores, blisters, bruises, mild burns, hot spots, insect bites, dry skin areas, and more!
Calendula is safe for use on: dogs, cats, horses, cows, bunnies, goats, chickens and ducks too! (Since cats are especially sensitive to herbs, use a small amount at a time and don’t use long term. My daughter safely uses a bit on her cat’s ears when he has damaged them in a fight, but check with your vet first to find out if calendula is safe for your kitty’s particular health situation.)
Arnica has the ability to reduce pain and disease-causing inflammation when applied to the skin comes in handy for all kinds of bruises, aches, sprains and even arthritis flare-ups. It can even be applied to insect bites to reduce irritation and inflammation. Arnica oil can also be used to relieve areas of stiffness resulting from flying or long-distance driving.
