Calendula 30c is almost the universal natural remedy for any time the skin is broken, whether by accident or by surgical incision. It brings the sides of the wound together, prevents infection, reduces pain and scarring, and speeds wound healing. Use in addition to conventional first aid measures – it will enhance and will not interfere.
Exception: Use Ledum or Hypericum instead in the case of a puncture wound, bite wound or other “dirty wound”. Calendula heals the surface wound so quickly that infection can become trapped under the skin.
Directions: Dissolve 2 pellets in the mouth to get the healing underway quickly. Meanwhile dissolve 2 pellets in a half cup of water to make the remedy stronger. Stir really well. The person can take small sips many times throughout the day, and the liquid can also be poured over the wound area. It works both internally and externally.
