St Francis Vitamin E Calendula Cream
Great for sores and abrasions of all kinds
Calendula stands out as our premier herb for the healing and nourishment of the skin. It is also our best vulnerary. Calendula Cream with Vitamin E, made with certified organically grown flowering tops of calendula infused in extra-virgin olive oil along with aloe vera, myrrh and vitamin E, is a natural herbal treatment used topically to aid in healing abrasions, bedsores, cracked heels, chapped hands, cuts, varicose veins, venous congestion, and surface wounds.
Eclectic physicians extol calendula: As arnica is applied to bruises and sprains, this agent is also applicable; and in addition it is of much service applied to recent wounds, cuts and open sores. It is antiseptic, preventing the formation of pus. It causes the scar to form without contraction of tissues, and in the simplest possible manner. It hastens the healing of wounds and materially favours union of co-apted (stitched) surfaces by first intention. It relieves the pain in wounds, and if there are not bad bruises, it quickly relieves the soreness and favours the healing process.
The American Botanical Council`s Mark Blumenthal and his coauthors explain that calendula ointments have been proven in tests to "activate tissue regeneration and epithelial tissue development".
Numerous sources corroborate calendula`s external use for the following: skin ulcers and venous leg ulcers, inflammatory skin lesions, diaper rash, poorly healing wounds, and chapped dry skin and lips.
Our specially formulated cream combines ingredients best suited to reinforce the particular healing properties of calendula. Thus, besides calendula, Calendula Cream with Vitamin E contains aloe vera, which also has well-verified wound healing properties. Moisturizing and emollient, aloe vera contributes immune-enhancing, antibacterial, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory qualities to the cream. Another ingredient we have included is myrrh, which has traditionally been employed for wounds and abrasions and has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. The vitamin E, which we have added as a highlight to this formula, plays a signal role as an antioxidant, helping to stabilize and repair cell membranes and reducing oedema and erythema.
With its soothing, antiseptic qualities, Calendula Cream with Vitamin E is the perfect remedy to keep on hand both as a valuable and versatile first aid resource and as an all-purpose hand cream.

Wow! What can I say? I absolutely adore this product!
We use this to heal dry cracks in the skin of our fingers in the winter, to calm down slightly sunburned skin in the summer, and calm down any skin irritation. I highly recommend this product instead of cortisone.
Thanks to everyone at St Francis Herb farm for making such quality products.
We are very satisfied with the cream and its quality.
We have been using the hand and body and Calendula Cream in our clinic for several years. We are very satisfied with the cream and its quality. We have found the creams stay fresh. The creams are excellent for our very sensitive patients. We appreciate the care and quality products that St. Francis Herb Farm produce.

All the splits are healed up... and his feet feel great!
My husband had splits on his heels. Being a diabetic, he has to be careful about using pumice stones. I lightly sanded his heels and applied Calendula Cream With Vitamin E. I applied the cream daily for one week. All the splits are healed up, and I apply the Cream about once a week now. He says his feet feel great since using Calendula Cream With Vitamin E.
My patients have experienced such dramatic results from your products...
I have been in practice since 1991, and I believe that I have been a customer of St. Francis Herb Farm for that long as well. My patients have experienced such dramatic results from your products, that I have never had a reason to even consider another supplier for tinctures. I wouldn`t even know where to begin in choosing a particular favorite product.
Your Ear Oil worked `on contact` with my patients, which includes my own children. Your Oregano Oil out-performs antibiotics on resistant infections. Your Calendula Cream works as good as cortisone. Most of all, I regularly experience success with your various tinctures with my cancer patients (my special area of interest).
When products are high quality, patients get results, and that makes me a very happy naturopath.

Nothing has helped me as much as the Calendula Cream and Naturally Beautiful Calendula Body Lotion!
I have been a customer using your products for a while now. I came across them when I was searching for a cream that would help my skin condition. I have severe eczema and psoriasis. For about 20 years now I have tried different creams and lotions. I`ve been to doctors and have gotten steroid creams as well. Nothing has helped me as much as your Calendula Cream and Naturally Beautiful Calendula Body Lotion.
Thank you for making these products!

Your excellent product!
My husband is a diabetic and has problems with sores healing. He was recently hospitalized for 17 days. When discharged home, he had two decubitus sores. Several ointments and creams were sent home, but nothing healed the sores. Our daughter sent us a jar of St. Francis Herb Farm`s Calendula Cream With Vitamin E. Within a period of two weeks his decubitus sores were healed. His doctor was pleased, and so were we with your wonderful product!
