Specific Benefits of Calendula Essential Oil as follows:
Skincare… Calendula is often used in skin healing, as the oil is soothing, rejuvenating, and skin regenerating. Calendula oil is used to assist with and treat most minor skin disorders including acne, scars, rash, and infection. It has also been used to help with ringworm.
Faster healing… Calendula’s chemical composition has been proven through animal studies to speed up wound-healing by increasing blood flow and promoting the production of collagen proteins.
