Calendula has a long history of use as a wound-healing and skin-soothing botanical. This lovely marigoldlike flower is considered to aid wound healing, a substance that promotes healing. Calendula also has anti-inflammatory and weak antimicrobial activity.
As recently as 70 years ago, American physicians used calendula to treat amenorrhea, conjunctivitis, fevers, cuts, scrapes, bruises, and burns, as well as minor infections of the skin. Neroli essential oil may help reduce the symptoms of redness and irritation and Lavender has traditionally been used for its ability to help promote healing .
