Calendula

I love Calendula Oil. Most people haven't heard about it, which is a shame. Calendula Oil isn't an essential oil, it is an infused oil. I make my Calendula Oil with a range of different carrier oils. Sometimes I use Extra Virgin Olive Oil and sometimes I use other oils, depending on what I want to end up with. I have just finished some beautiful Calendula Oil using Grapeseed Oil.
 
Here are some of my Favorite Calendula Oil Uses
 
Moisturize dry skin. Calendula is an emollient that helps nourish and moisturise your skin.
Apply to dry, cracked hands and feet — this is especially therapeutic in wintertime!
Apply to scars and stretch marks to aid your skin’s natural healing processes.
Massage into tired legs — this is especially helpful if you have varicose veins.
Use as a healing balm for minor cuts, scrapes and wounds.
Apply to soothe sunburned skin.
Calm itchy skin and inflammatory skin irritations (like eczema).
Use as a diaper balm for babies.
Apply to insect bites to calm itching and speed recovery.
Apple to acne-prone skin as a moisturiser to calm the skin and prevent breakouts.
Massage into the abdomen and apply a heat pack to soothe away menstrual pain.
 
You can also use the Calendula Oil as the carrier oil, when making lotions and potions with essential oils. for instance an after sun spray is just awesome using Calendula Oil, Lavender, Tea Tree and Peppermint Essential Oils.

Next time you deal with discomfort from too much sun, try this after-sun soothing spray with essential oils.
