Making calendula oil
Calendula is one amazing plant, I can not express through my written words how much I love this plant. It has amazing healing and restorative powers. Yes it may look fairly plain, and not like uber beautiful flower, but oh what it can do!
This is one plant that is totally worthy of some garden space! Calendula is great for the skin. It is anti-septic 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 olive oil. Voila, just like that your healthy flower become 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.
Here is what you do
- cut lots of fresh flowers
- pack into jar
- fill the jar with olive oil, enough to cover flowers
- place lid on jar shake often and set in sunny window
- after 4-6 weeks strain of flowers
- bottle the oil and label
And just like that, you have yourself calendula infused oil for all making sorts of healing items
Yes this a super easy one, and it is great to keep on hand. Make your own healing salve, skin creams or baby lotions, carrier oils and more ♡♡♡
