Calendula flowers, also known as marigold, have been used for centuries for their medicinal properties. They are a popular choice for infusing in oils and balms due to their anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties.
When infused in oil, calendula flowers release powerful antioxidants that help to nourish and protect the skin. The oil is thought to help reduce inflammation and promote wound healing, making it an ideal ingredient for use in skincare products.
In our all-natural, beeswax-based balms, we infuse organic calendula flowers in a carrier oil such as sweet almond oil or coconut oil, which is then blended with beeswax and other natural ingredients. The resulting balm is ideal for use on dry, irritated, or damaged skin, as well as for soothing minor cuts, scrapes, and burns.
The infusion process involves placing dried calendula flowers in a carrier oil and allowing the mixture to sit for several weeks, allowing the oil to absorb the beneficial properties of the flowers. Once the oil has been infused, it is strained and used in the balm-making process.
We take pride in using only the highest quality, organic calendula flowers in our infusions to ensure that our balms are as effective and nourishing as possible.
