Calendula Officianalis, or common marigold is a dear friend to Goldies, gardens and herbalists alike. Her golden flowers are rich in natural antioxidants to help protect the skin from oxidative stress. Calendula helps hydrate scalp and skin to reduce itchiness and can promote hair growth by reducing inflammation of the scalp.
Calendula encourages collagen production fighting skin damage and amps up the skins ability to retain moisture.
We use our own home grown Calendula flowers (or source them sustainably from an organic farm if supply is low) to make an infusion into olive oil to bring it's soothing and healing benefits into our oil based skin care products.
In our hair care line we use organic coconut oil for the flower extraction.
