One of the wonders of the ancient world, the calendula plant has been the go to plant to help heal skin affected by conditions ranging from eczema to mosquito bites. Calendula gets its soothing and regenerative powers from its high level of triterpenoid and calendic acid. The flower offers anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties. Calendula has been used for thousands of years to help calm as well as repair skin. Our rare calendula oil is pressed directly from the seeds and flowers. When you find "calendula oil" it is actually a maceration of the flowers in a base oil such as olive or almond. Sometimes the fact that a base oil is used is not stated on the label as producing a pure calendula seed oil is costly.
For this rare and precious oil, I traveled to the Nile fed region of Egypt where fields of calendula plants grow to their prime in the basking Sahara Desert. The deep orange blossoms glow in contrast to the nutrient rich black silt soil created thousands, perhaps billions of years ago by the Nile River. One can travel for hours through nothing but sandy barren quarters of the Sahara to be greeted with flowing fields of calendula, chamomile, black seed and every imaginable green herbage. Observing the immensely fruitful fields of bright orange calendula in ancient fields of silt I had no doubt that I had found the source to create the most potent calendula oil possible.
