    The power of Calendula

    • 2 min read

    What is Calendula?

    Simply put, Calendula (Calendula Officinalis) is a plant, or rather a flower. For many years, Calendula has been a natural ingredient for a variety of medicine practices. It has commonly been used for wounds, rashes, or irritated, inflamed skin.

    Calendula and how it helps skin barriers.

    Why is it special?

    Calendula contains incredibly powerful properties that aid in skin health. These properties include anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal compounds. This allows Calendula to be useful in the healing of wounds or open/infected skin, and to soothe irritated skin such as eczema.

    What are the benefits for the skin?


    Calendula has been thoroughly studied for its benefits in promoting the healing of wounds. The anti-inflammatory compounds within Calendula promote the healing of wounds through reducing symptoms such as redness, swelling and bruising.

    Eczema Skin

    Calendula has valuable skin calming properties that promote the relief from skin inflammation and relieve itching that is associated with eczema. A recent study in Journal of Pakistan Association of Dermatologists 2011, found that Calendula is effective in reducing acne, inflammation, and soothing eczema. The anti-bacterial compounds work to dis-infect any minor cuts and chapped skin. Calendula also works to add essential hydration to the skin – further proving itself to be a key ingredient in eczema relief.

    Psoriasis Skin

    Using Calendula for the treatment of psoriasis is particularly effective as the ingredient significantly reduces the inflammation and irritation while the anti-bacterial compounds combat infections.

    Control those pesky flare ups

    Perfect to control those flare ups that seem to occur. I feel much better about using a natural product rather than cortisone creams

    Only thing that works for our baby’s eczema.

    We tried it all. I mean everything that was chemical free that would help our baby’s eczema. At her last appointment the pediatrician said we may have to try steroids. We didn’t want to do that. When I came across this product I knew I had to try it as a last resort. We’ve been using it for 2 months and her eczema is basically resolved. We went from applying moisturizer 5-6 times a day, to 1-2 times a day.
