Cal-Pop Salve soothes and calms

Cal-Pop Salve is a topical remedy with anti-microbial properties for wound healing and for various skin conditions such as eczema and minor cuts or scrapes. Our formula is made with coconut oil and is double infused with whole-plant Eschscholzia, that is, flowers, leaves, roots and all, then hardened with beeswax… and a few drops of frankincense essential oil for additional anti-inflammatory properties and to help preserve the salve.

Focusing our attention on the particular properties of this special balm, California Poppy, Eschscholzia californica, is analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic and sedating, making it useful for neuralgia and neuropathy. It has even been used for restless leg syndrome, and it was found to act faster and last longer than homeopathic cream.

Try it for any type of nerve or muscle pain. It can also be applied to the abdomen for menstrual or intestinal cramps.

We have used it in lieu of homeopathic cream for restless legs and found it to be equally if not more effective, going to work faster and lasting longer.

This plant contains no opium even though it is a poppy. It is safe for children, and often used as a gentle nervine for anxiety and irritability. Try a little dab on baby’s gums when they are teething.
