You can make Calendula oil to treat a variety of irritable skin conditions. Remedies based on this herb have been around for centuries and are still being used today. There are many naturally grown plants and herbs that have almost magical healing powers, yet so many people in the world are unaware this type of help is available.
The Calendula flower is one of nature’s healing plants. This beautiful flower has been used to treat many conditions over the years and is commonly called the Marigold. It has colorful petals and leaves which are ground up and used to treat inflammation and other skin conditions. Some people have taken the Calendula orally to help soothe stomach ulcers and other stomach inflammations.
Of course, plants and herbs are easier to use than ever because now that scientists have realized the healing powers of the Calendula flower, it is being put into creams, lotions, and other beauty and health products. Even though there have been studies on this plant, scientists still believe there are more health benefits available than they know at this time.
Pure organic Calendula that has been made into an oil can treat all kinds of skin conditions. The plant has an antiseptic in it to help fight infection too, so you could also use it for cuts and abrasions.
Make Calendula Oil at Home
What you put on your skin eventually gets into the bloodstream and takes a trip to all your internal organs. Let’s put this another way–the labels on your store-bought skin creams and lotions are loaded with ingredients that are illegal to use in some countries and some are known carcinogens like benzylparaben, butylparaben, isobutylparaben, or propylparaben.
You can make your own Calendula oil at home, but if you’ve never done it before you run the risk of it not making it properly. It might not be strong enough or go rancid too quickly. There is a free video workshop, Handcrafted Healing Herbal Oils, that will teach you how to make infused herbal oils.
Having a trusted home remedy that you made and feel connected to that can help with pain, inflammation, swelling, bruising, and promote healing changes things. Now don’t get me wrong, your oils can’t take care of everything, but the whole orientation to your wellness shifts towards feeling more and more empowered when you really have the natural remedy tools on hand to take care of yourself, there’s just a peace of mind that comes with that.
Remember, the workshop is free and you can join it here.
