Calendula

Calendula

The changing seasons have been putting my body to the test this year. Hot to cold and back again really messes with my skin and body’s pH levels. As nature tries to find the right balance of temperature your skin can be as sensitive as ever before. No need to worry, I have an easy cure to leave your skin relaxed and reduce the irritation it may have suffered.

Two words: Calendula and Oil. Calendula oil is derived from the calendula flower. The flower, which is edible (yum) begins to bloom and become pronounced each June. Beyond being beautiful and natural the plant oil provides immense relief to a multitude of ailments.

Did winter leave you with dry and chapped skin? Calendula acts as a natural moisturizer, soothing cracked areas and aiding the body’s natural healing process.

As an anti-inflammatory, calendula oil can greatly soothe inflamed and swollen tissue. This property allows the oil to help with dry skin and eczema. For young children and newborns, soft skin means increased sensitivity in the first few years. Calendula oil works to balance the sensitivity of a toddler’s diaper rash by reducing the pain and irritation.

Once the warm air return in the spring, there is no better way to combat insect bite nuisance then with calendula oil. It prevents infections from the bites, helps heal cuts faster and soothes burns quicker.

Last, but not least, calendula works with the body’s natural chemicals to help raise collagen levels, making those scars less pronounced.

Because of calendula’s unique and helpful properties I use it in my Eye BalmBaby Balm, and my new Body Lotion. I encourage you to check them out!

As always, I encourage you to keep asking questions about products and ingredients. A consumer who is aware is a consumer who bewares the greenwashing tricks.
