Calendula contains many antioxidants and is extremely effective in treating wounds and other skin problems.
You can grow good quality calendula flowers in your garden and I have made calendula oli by grinding calendula flowers in a little boil with olive oil.
"Ringelblumensalbe" from the Bahnhof Apotheke
To buy a good quality ointment is not so easy.
Many commercially pushed calendula creams contain low concentrations of calendula and a lot of preservatives.
The best calendula ointment I have ever found is "Ringelblumensalbe" from
The Bahnhof Apotheke in Kempten, Germany: http://www.bahnhof-apotheke.de/. They have an online shop and ship world wide but the online shop is only in German.
The "Ringelblumensalbe" from Bahnhof Apotheke is a Lanolin based ointment and it
is excellent for babys with diapers. It cures skin irritations very quickly.
