For this year's harvest-batch, we collected calendula from our flower bed and from Cider Hill Farm - a woman-run farm up the road! We wanted to find the best method to process them into something truly robust, because when extracted correctly, these flowers pack a punch.
We went with a heat extraction to make the most potent product. Much of the beneficial qualities of calendula lie in the resin concentrated in the flower heads themselves and as it turns out, using heat is the best method to extract the resin in its most impactful way. And man is this oil powerful!
The antioxidants and fatty acids packed into these sunny flowers make for a topical oil that not only softens your skin but works to heal cuts, fight fine lines and diminish scars. This gentle and effective oil will smoothly usher your skin into the winter months. We truly believe Calendula to be the most magical of all the medicinal plants and are certain that you will see their powers too. Apply to heal and repair inflammation. Safe for total body application.
1 oz dropper bottle.
Application: A little goes a long way. Apply to soothe dry skin, eczema, acne, small cuts and bruises...the list goes on and on! Learn more about the magical and medicinal properties of Calendula on our IA Journal.
