If you didn’t know that Supersalve is a nigh miraculous formulation 10 powerful ingredients in perfect proportion, then you do now. Tested on equipment that measures energy frequencies and properties, Supersalve balm received a perfect score on its ingredients and their proportions.

In a series of articles, we will introduce you to each of them so you can more readily appreciate their healing properties, starting with Calendula – aka ‘poor man’s saffron’.

Calendula’s Classic Capabilities

From babies to the elderly, Calendula’s powerful healing properties exist in over 200 lotions and products worldwide. Because Calendula is an effective antioxidant and being packed with flavonoids, is among the strongest known antiviral herbs yet discovered, we begin to understand just why it works across such a wide spectrum of ailments. Topical Calendula is effective for rashes and inflammations of the skin, wounds, insect bites, burns (including sunburn) and is absorbed so deep into the tissues that is has proven effective in muscle, ligament, joint and arthritic conditions. Here’s why:

  • Antiviral and Antimicrobial components - where anti-biotic resistant bacteria is present, they will succumb to the healing power of Calendula.
  • Anti-inflammatory properties - endowed with generous amounts of linoleic acid, Calendula is a great remedy for inflammatory skin issues such as ulcers, infections, sores, dermatitis (including that often caused by radiation treatment used for breast cancer) and rashes (especially diaper/nappy rash), bed sores, acne, eczema, psoriasis and bruising. It’s worth using in contact dermatitis such as poison ivy reaction. Also for deeper than skin level conditions like sprains, strained muscles and tendons, varicose and spider veins, chilblains and leg ulcers
  • Antifungal action - perfect for jock itch, athlete’s foot and ringworm.
  • Skin stimulation – this healing and restorative property makes Calendula great for boosting the elasticity and cleanliness of the skin. Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and age spots and works wonders on scars and damaged skin. Supersalve’s formulation has been known to help immensely on skin that has been damaged by burns from sunburn to third-degree burns.

Supersalve is Pet Friendly too

Safe for animals also, Supersalve All-care Balm is popular with vets – especially those working in the horse fraternity. But use it freely for your domestic pets, especially for rapid wound healing, where Calendula, in combination with other ingredients delivers rewarding results.

In short, Supersalve’s stable of ingredients all champion different healing properties and Calendula's healing clout has catapulted it to new heights in topical treatment preparations. Derived from the humble  marigold, Calendula has healing properties more powerful than medicinal, lab manufactured topical preparations. Supersalve, with its perfect proportion of Calendula, is one of those ‘must have’s’ in the home, in fact, it is a great addition for any first aid kit – make sure it’s in yours!

NB: All SUPERSALVE products are completely free from petrochemicals, parabens and phthalates, and are safe for the whole family, from babies to the elderly and everything in between!
