Calendula (Marigold) is used topically for wound healing, acne, reducing inflammation, soothing irritated tissue and to control bleeding. It has anti-inflammatory properties.

Hydrastis (Goldenseal) is considered to be a great natural anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial herb and is often used to boost the medicinal effects of other herbs.

Hamamelis (Witch Hazel) has astringent properties and reduces inflammation and swelling by shrinking and contracting blood vessels back to their normal size. It is also used in treating acne, bruises and insect bites.

Yucca is used to treat skin lesions, sprains, inflammation and to stop bleeding. It is also beneficial in treatment of arthritis and joint pain.
