Soothing, Nurturing, and Softening for Body and Soul
Calendula contains soothing, maternal comfort that allows us to feel secure and deeply nourished. The flower was also known as Mary’s Gold because its golden blossoms bestow a mothering and calming touch, highly beneficial for all forms of irritation and inflammation.
Calendula flowers have been used for various forms of skin restoration, with notable anti-inflammatory, vulnerary and disinfectant properties. This oil is ideal for the delicate skin of infants and children, and as a beneficent balm for birthing and nursing mothers. Calendula Caress™ instills a gentle mothering disposition of soul, showing us the path by which we can heal others with our own word and touch.
The Calendula Caress™ oil can be massaged into skin or used in warm baths to replenish and moisturize during times of winter cold and indoor dry air, or summer heat and dryness; for any skin that is inflamed, red, fine, delicate or hypersensitive, including children and infants; for swollen areas of the lymphatic system, or for slow-healing wounds or skin ulcers; for calming and receptivity especially during times of emotional upset, moodiness or irritability; or as a gentle harmonizer for the feminine: for the breasts of nursing mothers, as a moisturizing balm for the birthing belly, and for calming and centering during the moon cycle.
