The Benefits of Calendula for your Skin

The Benefits of Calendula for your Skin

Calendula Benefits for the Skin

The Calendula Flower is also known as Marigold. It has many many benefits for the skin.

  • It is used by many a parent on their baby's sore bottom when they get a nappy rash.  We, as parents, swore by it for this purpose when we had babies
  • And not just for babies!  Calendula cream can soothe painful areas in all parts of the skin, it is anti-inflamtory, anti-fungal and anti-microbial.  It can also help heal wounds
  • Many of my clients tell me that they found the calendula and beeswax body butter very helpful for their psoriasis and/or eczema.  I'm not saying that this is for certain. I'm just telling you what I was told
  • There are rumours that it can to a certain degree protect from the sun.  I, myself, have found this to be the case but I couldn't vouch for all skin types. 

Calendula in our Body Butter and Hand Cream

Calendula in our garden

We have an abundance of it growing in our garden each summer.  I take great delight in collecting the calendula petals that are about to fall off and I keep them in a box in the house where they dry in the air. These dried petals I put in a jar, fill it up with sweet almond oil and leave for a couple of days in a sunny window sill.  All this gets put into my body butter and hand cream.
