Calendula flowers stimulate healing and blood flow to the skin cells, and significantly boost the appearance of your skin when used regularly, either as a tea or in skincare. Calendula provides antioxidant protection that reduces the appearance of wrinkles and age spots, and even the visibility of scars. If you want smooth, even-toned skin that glows with youthful vitality, consider adding calendula to your skin products or consume it in another form, such as tea.
Calendula oil is made by infusing the flowers in a carrier oil (such as olive oil or coconut oil). The oil can be used on its own or as an ingredient in ointments, balms, creams, or lotions. It can also be produced in tincture, tea, or capsule form. The raw flowers add a wonderful texture to soaps.
Calendula flower is also used to prevent muscle spasms, start menstrual periods, and reduce fever. It is commonly used for treating sore throat and mouth, menstrual cramps, cancer, and stomach and duodenal ulcers. Calendula has also been used for measles, smallpox, and jaundice.
Make tea by putting a tablespoon of Honest Skincare Calendula Flowers into a coffee plunger and steeping in boiled water for ten minutes before pouring and drinking - our bags will last several weeks with a daily tea and are an economical way of getting your calendula fix.
