As I was out harvesting the calendula blooms from my garden today, marveling at the wonders of this highly herbal and medicinal plant, I wanted to share a blog post about calendula benefits for our skin care. There are so many incredible properties of calendula and its remarkable benefits for our skin. Whether you're a seasoned natural skincare enthusiast or just beginning your journey, prepare to be amazed by the wonders of this homegrown ingredient.
Exploring Calendula's Herbal Properties:
Calendula, scientifically known as Calendula officinalis, has been revered for ages due to its potent herbal properties. This vibrant orange flower boasts anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-microbial abilities. When incorporated into our skincare routine, it works wonders for all skin types, offering gentle yet powerful healing benefits.
Calendula Benefits in Skin Care:
- Soothing Sensitivity:
For those with sensitive or reactive skin, calendula is a true savior. Its calming and anti-inflammatory properties help reduce redness, irritations, and even address conditions like eczema and dermatitis. Consider adding our calendula-infused products to your routine for the ultimate soothing experience. We feature calendula in our Renew Oil Cleanser, Refresh Face Toner and Pink Clay Face Mask for our natural skin care routine products. You can also find it in our Prairie Gold Balm, Citrus Shampoo and Wildflower Soap.
- Promoting a Radiant Complexion:
Calendula's antioxidants actively combat free radicals, protecting the skin from damage caused by environmental toxins and UV radiation. This flower's natural healing power helps rejuvenate the skin, leaving you with a radiant and youthful glow.
- Encouraging Skin Healing:
Do you have a pesky wound or stubborn blemish? Calendula's skin-reparative properties can come to the rescue! Its gentle yet effective properties promote faster wound healing, reducing scarring and blemishes along the way. Our Prairie Gold Balm can be used on superficial scrapes, rashes and cuts, being mindful of watching for redness and signs of infection (consult your physician if any concerns).
