Used for centuries, why not try creating your own face body and bath oil using this amazing herb.
✨ Marigold flowers (calendula) also known affectionately as the ‘Mother of Skin’ is one of Mother Nature’s true wonders.
✨ It was used by the village healers and Witches of old in their lotions and potions to promote intestinal healing and to treat the wounds and skin problems of the villagers.
✨ It is extremely beneficial for eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and rosacea as it has excellent moisturising properties, reduces inflammation, eliminates bacteria and regenerates skin cells thereby healing skin.
✨ Scientific research has confirmed what the wise ones already knew that it can reduce inflammation and encourage healing. It has also been proven to be effective in treating eczema resulting from radiotherapy.
✨ Studies have also shown that calendula is a powerful cicatrisant, so it helps the scars and blemishes caused by eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and rosacea to fade and vanish.
Create Your Own Calendula Infused Oil
- Harvest calendula flowers and leave them on some kitchen towel or brown paper to dry for a couple of days. Alternatively, purchase some dried calendula.
- Put these flower heads/dried calendula into a mason jar, jam jar or any other suitable glass container that can be made airtight. Fill the container half full with the calendula.
- Pour in olive oil* until the container is almost full and then put on the lid, ensuring it is secured tightly.
- Place the jar/container on a window sill (preferably sunny), and shake daily (you can even dance while you do it!).
- After 4 to 6 weeks strain the herbs out using a cheesecloth or strainer.
- Pour the calendula infused olive oil into a glass bottle and store in a cool dark place.
- Any natural oil can be substituted for olive oil. You could even have an array of infused oils and your very own apothecary!
This gentle and healing infused oil is now ideal for applying to skin ailments, for moisturising and nourishing dry skin, and for putting in your bath for a relaxing and nourishing soak.
It makes a great anti-ageing facial oil especially when applied over a moisturiser.
It is also gentle enough to use on baby’s skin.
