Calendula - Calendula officinalis

This annual herb grows up to 30-60 centimeters high; it has soft oval pale green leaves and bright orange daisy like flowers. Calendula is a truly beautiful plant that, according to herbal folklore, "comforts the heart and spirits". (From a personal note, I find this to be true.)

The oil comes in an absolute form by solvent extraction from the flowers or as an herbal infused oil, which is the result of infusing the flowers in a vegetable oil base. Both forms of the oil are nice, and because of their different levels of concentration they are used differently.

Calendula oil not only comforts the heart and spirit it also comforts the skin. With its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and cicatrisant properties it helps with burns, eczema, insect bites, rashes, wounds etc. Calendula is not only a beautiful plant but a beautiful oil that has powerful skin-healing properties.

Other common names for Calendula are: Garden marigold, Poet's marigold, Pot marigold.

You can purchase this essential oil through Frogworks. (essential oils are not on our web site - call or email)

 


It is the art and science of using a plant's essential oil (its essence). The science applies to the unique chemical and therapeutic properties of essential oils, and the art applies to the skills of blending essential oils.

Plant's essential oils are extracted from many parts of a plant (i.e. flower, leaf, tree, bark, root, twig, seed, berry, resin and rind). Two main methods of extraction are expression or pressure (which is the case of most citrus oils) or steam, water or dry distillation (most essential oils are produced by steam distillation).

Essential oils are used to calm, balance and rejuvenate the body, mind and spirit on multiple levels. They also have medicinal properties that help with the respiratory system, muscular and skeleton system, reproductive system, nervous system and digestive system. The healing power of plants is a beautiful addition to one's life.


"Aromatherapy? A therapy or cure using aromas, aromatics, scents? Yes! They can all be therapeutic if used, dosed and administered correctly and at the right time....Fragrances, and thus essential oils, play an important role in our lives."

- Dr. Foveau De Courmelles
