The Health Benefits of Calendula Oil
Calendula oil is a potent anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal that can help you take care of inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and rosacea. It also supports skin infection healing, especially if it's caused by Staphylococcus or Streptococcus, like impetigo.
Supporting wound healing is another of calendula oil’s many medicinal uses. It promotes and speeds up wound healing by stimulating the cellular processes needed for skin repair. It can even offer respite to bug bites and bee or wasp stings.
It’s a soothing moisturiser that’s excellent for dry skin, including chapped lips. It protects your skin against the effects of extreme weather and pollution.
Calendula oil is high in vitamin A, otherwise known as retinol. This vitamin is an excellent all-rounder for your skin’s health and can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Almond oil enhances the effects of Calendula, and is high in vitamin E which can reduce the appearance of stretch marks or scars.
Natural first aid ointment: Rub 2-3 drops of calendula oil onto minor wounds or skin infections to support the healing process. Moisturiser: Protect your skin from the outside world by massaging 2-3 drops onto your face and neck every morning and evening. This can be before your regular moisturiser or in place of it.
