INCI name: Calendula officinalis
Description: Calendula is an herb which is native to the Mediterranean region. To produce Calendula in oil form, the flower is infused in oil. Our Calendula is infused in Certified Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil. The texture is moderate to heavy, so it should be applied lightly or blended with a base oil.
History / benefits: The whole Calendula flower is used for medicinal purposes. Calendula has anti-inflammatory properties, making it excellent for treating varicose veins and skin inflammation. It is very effective in treating wounds and skin problems such as rashes, chapped or cracked skin and eczema.
How to use: Calendula can be used on its own to help with rashes and chapped skin. Simply apply a small amount over the affected area. “Moms to be” can use it as-is to help with varicose veins.
For severe varicose veins, try this blend:
30 ml Calendula
30 ml Apricot Kernel oil
20 drops Cypress essential oil
16 drops Lemon essential oil
During high inflammation periods apply the blend daily. It is most effective when you apply in the morning; however, because Lemon is photosensitive, do not apply this blend if going into the sun during the summer months. Instead, apply it in the evening before going to bed.
