Herbal Liniment

A calendula liniment is a topical solution often used for its soothing and anti-inflammatory properties. Here’s a simple recipe for a Dried calendula Liniment:


  • 2 tablespoons dried calendula flowers
  • 1 cup witch hazel
  • Glass jar with a tight-fitting lid
  • Cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer
  • Dark glass bottle for storing


  1. Start by ensuring that your glass jar is clean and dry. It should have a tight-fitting lid to seal the liniment.
  2. Measure out 2 tablespoons of dried calendula and place them in the glass jar.
  3. Pour 1 cup of witch hazel over the dried calendula in the jar. Make sure the flowers are completely covered by the liquid.
  4. Seal the glass jar with its lid tightly.
  5. Place the sealed jar in a cool, dark place and let it steep for about 1 to 2 weeks. This will allow the calendula to infuse into the witch hazel.
  6. During the steeping process, shake the jar gently every day to help distribute the calendula’s properties into the liquid.
  7. After the steeping period, strain the calendula flowers from the witch hazel using a fine mesh strainer or a piece of cheesecloth. Squeeze the cloth to extract as much liquid as possible.
  8. Pour the strained calendula-infused witch hazel into a dark glass bottle for storage. Dark glass helps protect the liniment from light exposure, which can degrade its quality over time.
  9. Store the calendula liniment in a cool, dark place, away from direct sunlight. It can typically be kept for several months.

How to Use:

  • Apply the calendula liniment topically to areas of the skin that need soothing or have minor irritations.
  • You can use it as a compress by soaking a clean cloth in the liniment and applying it to the affected area.
  • calendula liniment is known for its calming and anti-inflammatory properties, making it suitable for minor skin irritations, and insect bites, or as a gentle toner for the face.

Always do a patch test before applying any new topical solution to ensure you don’t have any adverse reactions. If you experience any discomfort or irritation, discontinue use.
