Notes: Hypercal tincture is used as a natural organic antiseptic healer and has historically been used wherever nerves were affected. It is thought to favour clean healing of deeper tissue and is therefore preferred to Calendula alone in such wounds.
Calendula and comfrey have a reputation for healing surface tissue much faster and are therefore more suitable for superficial wounds.
Hypercal tincture is used in a 1:3 to 1:5 ratio with hot water as a healing lotion for the perineal tissues after childbirth.
Hypercal is frequently recommended for pregnant ladies and new mums for wound healing, torn and sore tissues after episiotomies and caesarian.
