Flowers have been used in beauty applications across the ages. While rose and lavender are household beauty botanicals, calendula is a lesser-known flower with great potential in natural beauty care.

Calendula essential oil is made by infusing marigold flowers into a carrier oil, which can be used on its own or can be made into tinctures, ointments, creams, facial steams, and capsules.

The colorful petals of calendula are rich in flavonoids, a naturally occurring compound found in fruits and vegetables. Its wonderful properties make it a favorable product to use in soothing skin conditions as well as brightening your complexion.

如何制作金盏花油?

If you feel like getting crafty, you can make your own calendula oil with just a few simple ingredients.

两个最重要的组件是干calendula flowers and a carrier oil. Jojoba oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil, and rosehip oil are among some of the leading carrier oils. Regardless of the oil you choose, use a high-quality, cold-pressed, unrefined, organic oil to ensure that the oil is pure and retains all of its nutrients.

接下来,用松散的干燥花瓣或3/4填充有干的金盏花花头,将梅森罐子填满。将您选择的油倒在干燥的花朵上,直到它们完全浸没。将盖子放在罐子上,将其存放在温暖的阳光明媚的地方至少三个星期。

After the infusion process is complete, strain the flowers from the oil. The oil should be a deep orange hue with a woodsy aroma and can be stored in a glass jar or a bottle with a pump for ease of use. Store the oil in a cool, dark place and it should last for a couple of years.

Here are seven ways you can incorporate calendula oil into your home beauty routine.
