Calendula Refined oil – Calendula officinalis – is processed in Australia from the petals of the (Pot) Marigold or Calendula flower.
Calendula Refined oil is a popular carrier oil, with known properties of addressing ailments from superficial scratches and lesions to minor muscular ‘twinges’.
The oil is a bright orange colour which comes form the flowers, and has only a slight ‘oily’ odour. The orange colour disappears gradually when absorbed by the skin.
This beautiful oil has been documented in assisting to clear up minor skin conditions, rashes and even safe for nappy rash and bed sores which makes Calendula oil an excellent oil to use for the very young to the elderly.
A perfect addition to your family natural first aid kit and one which should be taken with you camping as a natural healing agent in the outdoors.
Equal parts Calendula, Avocado and Argan oils assist in restoring the skin after intense exposure to the sun. Use as liberally though it is advised to try a ski test first in the event you may react to the combinations of oils.
Heritage Oils uses Calendula oil in the popular Smitten post-bite product.
For those tender skins and irritating nappy rashes, use Calendula oil blended with lavender and chamomile.
