I've been using calendula ointment since the midwife in England suggested it for breastfeeding nipples almost thirty years ago! It's great for dry, chapped, cracked skin, sore red noses...sometimes healing skin overnight. This product is soothing and I use it instead of antibiotic cream, since I am allergic to some of their ingredients.

I have used Calendula products in a liquid form to heal surgery stitches in the past and looked to Well.ca to find a product for a recent surgery scar. I feel that using this cream in combination with Vitamin E has really reduced the redness, puckering and overall prominence of the scar.
Recently used it on a deep, slow healing wound of my 7 year old son and it seemed to me to work better than Poly. However, I use don't use it on newly opened wounds for my boys as there is a "tingle" factor that they will only tolerate once it is heal over a bit.
