The Mighty Calendula

What would we do without Calendula? From its origins as a truly invaluable cure for open wounds from days long gone by, to one of the most widely used ingredients on our website, I cannot recommend it enough which is why we have decided to spoil you with our Specials on Selected Calendula Based Products this month.
Although the plant has it origins in Germany, it is now grown in many other areas across the world. The positive effect of Calendula preparations on the skin were known as far back in history as the time of ancient Egyptians. And yet today it remains one of the most popular herbal anti-fungal and anti-bacterial remedies to promote skin healing and cell regeneration.

The powerful action of Calendula oil lies in improving the blood flow to the effected area and in stimulating tissue regeneration. Furthermore, its anti-inflammatory and anti-spasmodic properties have been proved by substantial scientific evidence. For these reasons, the benefits of Calendula related to healing and scar prevention are truly magical. Anyone who has used a calendula salve on eczema will know exactly what I am referring to. In less than no time this herbal panacea is sure to soothe the pain and stop bleeding without any negative side effects. It will come as no surprise then that Calendula oil is successfully used for the following:

  • Chapped skin, lips and even cracked nipples from breast-feeding (Calendula is harmless for babies)
  • Scrapes and gashes
  • Insect stings and bites
  • Eczema (it is safe to be applied to the area around the eyes) and psoriasis
  • Shingles
  • Leg ulcers, varicose veins, chilblains and bed sores

Furthermore due to the high content and of carotenes, phytosterols and polyphenols, Calendula also delays premature aging of the skin tissue. It also proves high efficiency in preventing skin from over-drying, inhibiting the formation of sun-caused wrinkles.

“As a sufferer of eczema/dermatitis on my hands I have problems using soaps & detergents but the Calendula and Camomile soaps not only do not irritate the skin, using them has meant not using them has meant I don’t have to use my stereoid cream because of the calming anti-inflammatory effect the soaps have.
