CHAPPED LIPS MOISTURIZING OIL

This is super duper easy to do and make if you have the time and desire to do this beneficial DIY. All you need is a small mason jar, a vegetable oil (not cooking oil) and dried Calendula flowers. Wash out your mason jar and thoroughly let it dry. You do not want any water in the jar. Place the flowers into the jar about 3/4 full. Then pour the vegetable oil over completely covering the flower. Seal tight and allow to sit in sunlight for about 3 weeks. 

After three weeks, strain with a cheesecloth and store in a cute container. Keep this in you bathroom and apply in the morning and at night. Viola! You have made an Calendula infused oil.

Benefit: Accelerates healing process, soothes chapped skin & reduces redness from inflamed skin.

ANTI-AGING FACIAL MIST

All you need to make this happen is an empty and cleaned 4oz glass spritz bottle, measuring cup, dried Calendula flowers, witch hazel and lavender essential oil. Steep flowers in hot water and safely drain and set liquid aside to cool. Grab a measuring cup and pour two ounces of witch has and a few drops of lavender oil into the measuring cup. Then add two ounces of the cooled Calendula tea. Pour all of the concoction into your glass spritzer.

Shake well and spritz. Great for gently waking up your skin in the morning or calming your skin at night.

  • I’m printing this one out so I can work on this… Any oppportunity I have to use a holistic product versus a commercial product, is a win. I love calendula but had not thought about using it in these ways. It’s so refreshing to find a business which not only has AMAZING products but is also a great and knowledgeable resource for its customers. Thank You!!
