How to Infuse Calendula Oil
Calendula is what I love to call a miracle flower. It has a multitude of health benefits that we all can benefit from. It's an anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-microbial as well as an anti-inflammatory which is why it has been used as a tea to help many ailments such as stomach ulcers and menstral cramps. As a licensed esthetician that formulates the products in my skincare line I love to use natural ingredients because skincare doesn't have to be complicated. I believe in simplistic systems for skincare regimens. I've had some calendula flowers that I had been wanting to implement in some of my products and thought it would be aweome to make the calendula oil myself.

Carrier Oil (olive oil, sweet almond oil, sunflower oil, etc)
