Calendula Salve
 300ml olive oil (or other vegetable oil to your liking)
 dried calendula flower heads (I used 2 generous handfuls)
 30g beeswax, grated

I’ve had a bunch of dried Calendula petals in my freezer for ages, taken from the flowers I used as bee attractors in my summer allotment. So I’m using them up experimenting with this. First batch worked OK, colour a bit more orange/wax than this..but it feels and smells most satisfying.
