Calendula blossom oil has been used historically as an oil for breast cancer. In addition to keeping breast tissues healthy, calendula excels at preventing and, with patience, removing adhesions and scar tissue, even keloid scars. It is used for wounds, post-operative healing, bruises, diaper rash and minor skin irritations.

Keloid scars are elevated, hard scars, usually with irregular edges. The scar is benign, non-contagious and sometimes accompanied by severe itchiness and pain. They can be especially painful when they occur as a result of breast surgery. Keloid scars are caused by an overgrowth of scar tissue at the site of an injury or incision and are more frequent in dark-skinned women than light-skinned women.

Adhesions are thought of as internal scar tissue. The are bands of scar tissue that bind together internal body surfaces that ought to be free to slide by each other. Adhesions are common after abdominal surgery but can form after breast surgery.

A therapeutic salve can be made by mixing 1 part melted beeswax to 3 parts infused oil. Infused oils should be stored in a cool dry place or in the refrigerator and preferably used within one year. If stored in the fridge, the oil may solidify. Bring to room temperature before using.
