Known for centuries as the "healing herb," Calendula brings anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, astringent, antifungal, antiviral, and immunostimulant properties to the blending scene. A wonderful herb for addressing skin wounds and common ailments such as skin chafing, insect bites and stings, athlete's foot, dry skin, diaper rash and more. Also referred to as "Pot Marigold," the Calendula flowers have been widely incorporated into first aid and skin care products.
In the form of a hydrosol, Calendula is great when misted on delicate skin and when used in compresses and facial steams! Calendula Hydrosol would be a great skin toner, especially when mixed with Frankincense Hydrosol and Lavender Hydrosol. Add equal parts of each to a glass spritzer bottle or eye dropper bottle for use with cotton balls. Store in your fridge for a cooling skin cooling toner.
Calendula Hydrosol is a safe choice for pets. Consider using it to address common cat and dog skin issues, as well as those common "stinky ears."
