Calendula officinalis, Family Asterceae (Compositae), U.K. Infused in Sweet Almond Oil (ratio herb to oil 1:5).
Calendula Oil has an anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, vulnerary (aiding healing of wounds) effect and is very useful in its own right. The addition of essential oils enhances the effects of the oils together. Calendula oil is wonderful for skin infections, wounds, rashes, bites and inflammations. Also used for other inflammations, e.g. hemorrhoids and rheumatism. Recommended for mixed and oily skins, calendula oil is somewhat cooling and slightly drying. Calendula is also excellent for use in the healing of scars and for eczema. It is rich in carotene and saponins, and is excellent for damaged skin. Calendula oil is so gentle and healing that it's appropriate for babies, especially for helping to heal diaper rash.
