Working with Calendula flowers has been pivotal in my skin healing journey so much so that I decided to create a few key products made with flowers from my garden.
Calendulas have incredible skin healing properties ideal for inflamed or easily aggravated rosacea-prone skin.
This face oil is crafted with pure, organic carrier oils which were infused with Calendula flowers for over 6 months for maximum potency. (Most products on the market infuse their oils for just a few weeks so you can be sure my products are POTENT, a little goes a long way.)
Besides being a potent rejuvenating plant, Calendula Officinalis has antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.
Think of Calendula as 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.
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.
I chose to infuse Calendula flowers in these particular carrier oils (as opposed to olive oil which you usually find on the market) to maximize the healing properties of the Calendula Face Oil.
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.
This face oil does not contain any essential oils so feel free to add a drop of Helichrysum or Frankincense! Don't know how to use essential oil for skincare? Watch my video masterclass here!
*Use your products within 3 months for optimum plant potency.
