As our cat has aged, it seems her ears are becoming more prone to cracks and bleeding. Just last night I awoke to feeling drops of liquid hitting my arms and realized the cat was shaking her head and spraying me with blood from the crack on the tip of her ear. Yuck.
Luckily, I can save myself a trip to the vet this time and help the wound on her ear stay clean and heal by reaching into my cabinet for Green Earth Farm’s Calendula Creme.
Calendula has antibacterial as well as healing powers, and Green Earth Farm’s Calendula Creme is made from 100% natural ingredients in a thick, jelly-like base of bees wax, sweet almond oil, and vegetable gely. The Vasoline-like substance smears gently onto the sensitive tip of her ear and stays put to keep the wound clean while covering the leak. Slathering some of this stuff on her ears a few times a day during and after the healing will help keep her ear skin supple and avoid repeating the experience. It seems like she needs this attention more often in the summer, when she spends more time outside.
Green Earth Farm’s Calendula Creme is a staple in my first-aid drawer for people, too, as it can be applied on everything from paper cuts to scrapes to deeper lacerations to speed and promote healing.
