Calendula Officinalis

Pattern of symptoms: wounds and cuts with pain out of proportion to injury.

Common uses: cuts and open wounds, abscesses, burns, general tissue healing, perineal tears during birth or episiotomy; can be applied as an ointment and/or taken internally and can be alternated with arnica.

Caution: calendula heals wounds quickly, so clean thoroughly in order to avoid grit being sealed inside.
