Calming Calendula for Healing Skin

You may have heard the name Calendula Oil but do you know where it comes from? The oil is actually extracted from Marigold Flowers. You know, those pretty, bright yellow blooms native to Southwestern Asia, as well as Western Europe and the Mediterranean. 

Marigold was revered by the Egyptians for it's rejuvenating properties and the bright yellow flowers were traditionally used as a natural colour dye. The word 'Calendula' comes from the Latin word "calendae," meaning "little calendar," because the flower blooms on the 'calends' or the first of most months.

Calendula gives off a slightly honeyed aroma and with a little bitterness and spice. It makes a wonderful herbal tea

Skin Healing Benefits of Calendula

The powerful antioxidants within the little yellow flower hold the key to helping reduce and subside many inflammatory health issues. This wonderful, gentle herb can be mixed into many homeopathic and natural products, ranging from teas to creams. We use Calendula in our Radiant Body Scrub and Radiant Tea

Calendula Oil has great anti-inflammatory and vulnerary actions, making it particularly helpful for;

  • stubborn wounds
  • acne, ulcers
  • bedsores
  • varicose veins
  • rashes
  • eczema

Calendula is also used to improve skin firmness and hydration and it helps soothe sore, inflamed and itchy skin. It also helps increase blood flow and oxygen to wounds and infected areas of the skin, which in turn helps the body grow new tissue and heal more successfully. Incredibly if you apply the flower oil to your cuts, scrapes, bruises, and insect bites, you can speed up the body's natural healing process.

For the Best Results

Drink 2 to 3 cups of Radiant Tea throughout the day

Use my Radiant Body Scrub in the bath once every three days to gently exfoliate and soothe skin
