Experience the healing properties of the Calendula flower infused in skin-nourishing organic oils formulated specifically for sensitive, rosacea-prone skin.
I spent the last 2 summers tending to my beautiful Calendula garden, always in awe of their resilient and uplifting nature. The harvests were so bountiful that I couldn't wait to get into the kitchen and experiment with making handmade potions.
After seeing firsthand the healing qualities of Calendula on my sensitive, rosacea-prone-skin (and my friends who kept coming back for more!), I decided to create a limited edition Glow Box honoring this generous plant ally: Calendula officionalis.
What's in the Glow Box:
1x 30ml Calendula Balm
1x 30ml Calendula Oil
1x 30ml Calendula, Rose & Citrine Flower Essence
1x 30g Calendula Glow Tea
THE CALENDULA BALM
Made with *jojoba oil, *camellia oil, *safflower oil, *rosehip oil, *shea butter, *mango butter, *cupuacu butter, and *beeswax. I also added a few drops of pure rose and Helichrysum italicum essential oils. *Organic
The carrier oils were infused with Calendula (grown in my garden!) for over 6 months for maximum potency.
I chose to infuse Calendula flowers in these particular carrier oils (as opposed to olive oil which is what you usually find on the market) to maximize the healing properties of the Calendula Balm, specifically for sensitive- rosacea-prone skin.
Besides being a potent rejuvenating plant, Calendula officionalis has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties. Calendula is a wound healer that helps repair cuts, breakouts, or inflamed skin.
Calendula flowers contain five powerful healing compounds: Oleanic Acid, Lupeol, Quercetin, α Amyrin, and β Amyrin. These compounds have been shown to provide antioxidant protection, soothe inflamed skin, and reduce itchiness.
The Calendula Balm also contains PURE Rose and Helichrysum italycum essential oils; both contain powerful healing properties for the skin and also the emotional body.
Helichrysum italycum essential oil
Helichrysum is highly regenerating, healing, and hydrating. It’s gentle on sensitive skin yet powerful enough to tackle tenacious breakouts, acne, dilated pores, circles under the eyes, even cellulite and stretch marks. Helichrysum essential oil is known to soothe inflamed skin, hives, redness, scars, blemishes and rashes.
Known as the "Queen of Oils," Rose oil is highly sought after for its aroma and powerful topical and emotional benefits. The blooming floral aroma is comforting and Rose oil, used topically, helps promote healthy-looking skin.
HOW TO USE THE BALM:
As a makeup remover: put a little more than a pea-sized amount in the palm of your hand, rub your hands together — inhale the blissful aroma — and apply to a DRY face. Rinse with a warm cloth. Repeat if necessary.
As a balm day or night: put a pea-sized amount in your hand, rub your hands together — inhale the blissful aroma — and apply to a dry face or after spritzing your favorite hydrosol.
As a body butter: slather on this luxurious balm after a shower/bath and feel the blessings of Calendula on your body. You can, of course, use it on dry hands or feet.
THE CALENDULA OIL
Made with *jojoba oil, *camellia oil, *safflower oil, *rosehip oil (*organic). The carrier oils were infused with Calendula (grown in my garden!) for over 6 months for maximum potency.
HOW TO USE THE OIL:
Morning or night: add 5 to 6 drops in the palm of your hand, press your hands together — inhale the blissful aroma — and apply to a dry face or after spritzing your favorite hydrosol by pressing the oil gently onto your skin. Breathe deeply.
Apply your face cream or sunscreen over the oil if you'd like.
On a wound or cut: clean it first then apply a few drops to speed healing.
CALENDULA, ROSE + CITRINE ESSENCE
Flower essences work on an energetic level. They help shift stuck patterns so that we may move into higher states of consciousness. Practically this might look like shifting a negative thought pattern into a new, positive one which frees up mental + energetic space to create a new reality.
HOW TO USE THE ESSENCE:
Put 5 drops under the tongue 5x a day. You can also add it to water, teas, coffee, or directly on your skin. Flower essences work energetically (emotional, physical, and mental bodies).
This essence was formulated to invite you into a state of receiving the bounty of life, to bask in a state of well-being + generosity, and feel safe for your heart to open and heal.
Rose essence: boundless love, open-heartedness, it is safe to give and receive and to love oneself and others unconditionally.
Calendula essence: abundance, joy, generosity, resilience, wound healer (energetic)
Citrine essence: Magnetism, prosperity, clarity
Feel free to start an entry in your journal as you work with a flower essence. It may take a day or 2 weeks to feel a shift. Tune in and notice thought patterns shifting without having to “work” on them, That’s the magic of flower essences.
