Calendula Ointment – The most versatile skincare product you will ever need

eco-seed-to-skin-care-Calendula Flower

You’ve probably heard or read this sentence from many a marketer or salesperson in your lifetime. Often it’s a cleaning product. Something along the lines of, “If you only buy one cleaning product for your home, it needs to be this one, it’s the only cleaning product you will ever need!” Well I don’t mean to come across like a TV Infomercial, but Calendula Ointment actually is the most versatile skin care product you could use. I’ll tell you why, but first, some background

Calendula officinalis is actually a genus of around 15-20 species of annual and perennial herbaceous plants in the Asteraceae family.

Calendula has been used traditionally as culinary and medicinal herbs. In fact, the petals are edible. So when I remind you, that if you wouldn’t eat it, then don’t put in on your skin, you know that Calendula safely fits within these parameters!

Pharmacological studies on the benefits of Calendula have shown that the extract has many soothing and antibacterial  properties in vitro. In a tincture, topical use of Calendula can treat acne, sooth the skin. There is so much information on calendula, do google it for further information.

It’s these properties that make Calendula ointment a fantastic base for hand cream for tough, hardworking hands; body cream; foot cream for dry and cracked feet; dried, cracked lips; intensive treatment cream for soothing ; powerful and yet delicate enough for use on babies and children for fast acting, chemical-free organic care for your child in nappies, it acts as a soothing barrier ointment to keep babies bottoms protected and moisturised.

Saarinen Organics Calendula Ointment contains certified organic olive oil, Saarinen Eco Permaculture Farm organically grown Calendula flowers, and the best quality, chemical-free, traditionally produced beeswax from a local provider, where the quality and purity of the ingredients is what makes the difference.

It is for all of these reasons that you need two jars of such a wonderful, versatile skincare product. One for your handbag (and your nappy bag for those with young ones), and one for your first aid kit.
