Just as cold and flu season ends, allergy season begins. Great. Thanks, world. Yet another reason to move to a tropical island. In the meantime, though, I suppose I shall have to make do with half of the seasons involving the sniffles at some time or another. I’m lucky enough not to suffer from any seasonal allergies, but I feel like I’ve had enough colds this past winter to more than compensate for it.

How to Make Calendula & Shea Nose Salve

Of the multitude of things that irritate me about having the sniffles, the awful, sore nose from the constant blowing is a major pain. It doesn’t matter how luxurious your tissues are, it always happens. Your poor nose never gets any time to heal, and is constantly scaly and painful, leaving you debating between blowing your nose again or letting it drip like a leaky faucet. Ugh.

How to Make Calendula & Shea Nose Salve

The last time I had a cold, this salve was brilliant. I applied it around the sore part of my nose every night, and every morning it was a lot better. So, so much better. A total nose-saver, in fact. So, if you’re nose-blowing prone, you need to have this salve on hand. It’s amazing. (It’s great for other boo-boos, too).

How to Make Calendula & Shea Nose Salve

Help support Humblebee & Me

Many of you have asked if there's a way to help support Humblebee & Me, so I signed up for Patreon. If you love what I do, have learned from me, sell anything made from my recipes, and want to see Humblebee & Me continue to grow and expand, I'd be thrilled if you'd consider becoming a patron. It works by making monthly donations—you can donate $3 a month if you'd like—and then I can use that money to continue to expand Humblebee & Me. I'd love to get into producing high quality video content (I've got an empty YouTube channel set up), which is something many readers have requested, and this would help fund that. There's so much I'd love to do, and you can help make it happen :) Learn More
