Why Calendula Is Great For Skin

Calendula for Happy Skin // www.mindfulmomma.com

Let’s have an ingredient lesson today, shall we? We hear so much about ingredients to avoid in skin care, I thought it would be helpful to take a look at some of the good ones!

Calendula is an herb with beautiful orange/yellow flowers, long known for its healing and soothing properties. The infographic below touches on some of the many ways calendula is beneficial in skin care – for everything from natural first aid, to diaper rash and eczema to anti-aging.

Here are a few calendula based products I’ve tried and loved*:

Earth Mama Angel Baby – Many of the wonderful oils, lotions and balms from this company contain soothing calendula – perfect for moms and newborns but I still use them!

Beautycounter’s Soothing Face Oil is part of my nightly beauty routine. A few drops is all you need! The Calendula Lip Conditioner is also a best seller.

Four Elements Herbal Salve – Fantastic herbal salve for bug bites, cuts and more.

Bodyceuticals – I sampled this skin care line based on organic calendula, at the Natural Products Expo. The body oil is divine!
