Rosemary Garden Organic Calendula Salve Review + Eczema Relief Bar
January 21, 2021 was a significant day for our family. At 6:18 pm, I gave birth to my daughter, Ruei-Ni. It was a natural delivery after induction, and I had a 4-centimeter perineal suturing wound. When I was in the recovery room post-delivery, I didn't feel the pain of the tear because the anesthesia from the painless childbirth hadn't worn off, and the medical staff continued to administer painkillers. However, not long after I got home, I started feeling extreme discomfort from the perineal wound. The pain intensified quickly due to the exertion during childbirth. Even after taking painkillers, the pain persisted, making it challenging to sit or sleep.
It wasn't until the fourth day post-delivery that I received a package from Rosemary Garden containing Calendula Healing Salve and an Eczema Relief Bar. Rosemary Garden's packaging is high-quality, containing the salve and soap in a cotton-linen drawstring bag. While it wasn't an extravagant box, the soothing aroma from the bag was therapeutic. I immediately decided to use the Calendula Salve for my perineal wound.
Maternity: Perineal suturing wound & eczema from maternity pads. Besides the perineal pain, my sensitive skin quickly developed eczema due to prolonged use of maternity pads and disposable underwear. I applied a thin layer of Calendula Salve to the affected area about five times a day for the initial two painful weeks. Additionally, I used the organic Eczema Relief Bar during showers. In just two to three days, my wound pain significantly decreased. Even without painkillers, I felt no discomfort, and the swelling had reduced. My eczema had completely healed, and there were no rashes even after wearing sanitary pads for extended periods. The aroma from the salve and soap made me feel refreshed, easing my anxiety as a new mother.
Newborn: Diaper rash, skin scratches, dry skin. The Calendula Salve, with its herbal ingredients, is free from heavy metals, formaldehyde, and chemical preservatives. It's more natural than commercially available zinc oxide-based creams. I used the Calendula Salve on my baby's diaper rashes and scratches. Within a day, the scratches had faded, and by the next day, they were almost invisible. California winters are dry, so I applied the salve to my baby's dry skin. It protected her skin from rubbing against the diaper and cloth. I noticed an improvement in her sleep quality and mood.
Rosemary Garden's products were developed by the first Taiwanese clinical herbalist registered in the US, Erica Kuo. Erica and her husband, Professor Vincent Wang (an authority in infectious diseases), believe in the complementary benefits of herbal and aromatherapy to modern Western medicine. After this experience, I'm keen to try other products from Rosemary Garden, including their herbal oil for breast massage (essential for breastfeeding mothers) and the Arnica salve for relieving backaches. For those with sensitive skin, Rosemary Garden's products are the best choice!
