New Soap: Summer Honey and Calendula

This is probably my favorite soap to-date! Made with a lovely, organic honey base, REAL honey for moisture and soothing calendula petals.  We are all aware of the wonderful properties of honey, but what is calendula exactly??
Calendula or Calendula officinalis, is also known as pot marigold. The petals range from yellow to bright orange and have been used for centuries to heal skin irritations and help heal wounds. Like honey, it is anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial and can be used to disinfect wounds, heal skin irritations and even added to make a soothing eye wash.  

In soap, it makes a wonderfully soothing bar. I've also added an all-natural light honey scent to boost its overall pleasantness.

You can find it at my etsy store here.
