St Francis - Calendula Oil
Traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve skin inflammations and irritations and to aid in wound healing.
Calendula Oil is a useful companion to our calendula salve and is the same in virtually all respects, except texture, which is to say that it doesn't include beeswax as a thickening agent.
Used topically to aid wound healing and for minor burns and abrasions, lacerations, swellings, contusions and muscle joint strains and sprains, our Calendula Oil is made from Certified Organically grown flowering tops of calendula infused in extra virgin olive oil. This product has a consistency that it gives it a different range of application options than Calendula Salve. Calendula Oil can be added to a bath, for example, or worked into the scalp or a bandage.
Research indicates quite compellingly that calendula is indeed very effective for skin conditions, speeding and enhancing the healing process and actually promoting tissue regeneration. Not surprisingly, studies have shown that this herb has antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties.
