A 100% pure essential oil is not made with any synthetic chemicals. The term “essential oil” means that this oil is the very essence of the plant it was distilled from – it is the plant in its purest form, and made from nothing else. Essential oils are used in a wide variety of aromatherapy practices. The bright golden yellow Calendula flowers spread cheer wherever they appear. With their sunny disposition they seem to spread floral sunshine everywhere. No wonder the ancient astrologers assigned them to the Sun in Leo. In milder climes, Calendula flowers almost all the year round, which is why the Romans called it ‘Calendula’ the ‘Calendar flower’. Apart from spreading cheer and ‘gladdening the heart’, Calendula is also very healing and soothing for the skin.
Calendula oil is appreciated as an ingredient in soap-making, and it also makes an excellent healing oil component in skin care lotions and creams. Do not apply to open wounds.
