Infusing Calendula Oil

Calendula is one amazing plant! I know, I know I say that a lot (but honestly it’s true!) Calendula is a lifesaver to those with sensitive skin. Its heals, calms, and protects. It grows easily and is easy to use in many different ways. I like to keep a jar of calendula infused oil on hand ready for any remedy I may need it for. Trust me when you see how easy infusing your own calendula oil is, you will be raving over this uber beautiful plant too!

How to make the herbal remedy calendula infused oil

This is one plant that is totally worthy of some garden space! Calendula is great for the skin. It is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. It is often used for treating bruises, burns, sores, skin ulcers, skin infections and rashes, and is even gentle enough for use on babies! One great way to use is to infuse fresh flowers into an oil. Voila, just like that your healthy flower becomes a useful tool in the medicine cabinet. Calendula oil for later use in creams, salves, ointments or lotions. This year that is exactly what we decided to do.
