Soothe and Nourish
The pytosterols and unsaponifiables contained in Calendula oil make it a particularly good choice for everyone. Calendula is an ally of babies and their sensitive skin, and is often used as a moisturizer for infants.
Safe and easy to use, Calendula oil can be applied on its own, or combined with other soothing essential oils such as Lavender angustofolia or German Chamomile.
