One of my favorite remedies for healing damaged skin is calendula oil. Calendula is another name for Marigold — the same ones we see commonly in gardens– and when the flowers are infused into an oil base the healing effects can be astonishing.
Calendula oil has anti-oxidents and offers antiseptic and antibacterial properties as well as being anti-inflammatory when applied topically. It helps heal cuts and scrapes and is effective on rashes, eczema, burns, and dry, chapped, or cracked skin.
One of the best uses for calendula oil is for diaper rash, where it works miracles for healing tiny tushes.
Bed sores, rug burns, and even broken or varicose veins will respond to the healing power of calendula. Try applying calendula oil after cosmetic waxing or laser procedures to calm the skin and reduce the inflammation and redness quickly while bringing a sense of relief to the site. As a bonus, it will reduce scarring.
Researchers at the Amala Cancer Research Centre in Amala Nagar, India, published in the Journal of Basic and Clinical Physiology and Pharmacology, Volume 20 2009, that they saw a dramatic increase in the healing speed of skin wounds, concluding: “The data indicate potent wound healing activity of Calendula officinalis extract.”
Calendula oil is a good ingredient in regular skin care formulas for its anti-aging properties and to promote healthy skin.
