After listening to our customers, we now have a larger size of jar available. It is of course jammed full of our gorgeous yelllow/orange calendula ointment which is made from 100% organic ingredients.
I use the calendula macerated in sunflower oil a lot in my aromatherapy practice often blended with other carrier oils and essential oils. The calendula macerate is the main ingredient in my ointment. It is really helpful for lots of skin issues – it calms an inflamed skin such as rashes & sunburn Cracked and damaged skin can respond well to treatment with calendula. Eczema and psoriasis prone skin can be extremely difficult conditions to manage, but often I have had customers report good benefits with using calendula.
To my ointment along with the calendula macerated oil, I also add 1) wheatgerm oil – a really rich oil that backs up the effect to revitalise dry skin, with its large quantities of vitamin E. 2) lavender essential oil – to help heal skin and add an antiseptic benefit too. 3) beeswax allows the other oils to penetrate the skin while it protects on the outside with a delicate barrier that you can’t see. Finally 4) rosemary extract is used as an antioxidant, but also has antiseptic and analgesic properties which makes it a good addition to the product
For many of the skin conditions mentioned above, it can also be beneficial to mix and match with comfrey ointment Many clients have used the two together to great effect
