Turn your calendula flowers into a valuable oil for natural skin care, healing and for eating.
Harvested calendula flowers for making calendula oil.
My new film (link below) shows 2 simple methods to make your own organic calendula oil using just 2 ingredients - calendula flowers and organic local olive oil. When I first learnt how to do this, I couldn't believe how absolutely easy it was. I was sure it was going to be really complicated. Give it a go!
Safe to eat so it's safe for your skin
Calendula oil is great for skin care, first aid and ... eating! I love the idea that you only put on your skin what is safe to eat. This oil is also suitable for sensitive skin, children and babies.

Here's a dozen ways you can use your home-made calendula oil:
nourishing face oil
sprains and bruises (anti-inflammatory)
eczema and psoriasis
You can use it straight, or make it into salves, creams, lotions, body butter, lotion bars, soap, lip balm, bug bite balm. So easy, yet so versatile. What other ways do you use it?

I encourage you to go ahead and plant calendula when your season is right, and harvest this wonderful flower for your own golden oil.
