Calendula Blossoms Infused into Olive Oil
Why is our oil better? We do a process called "double maceration". This means that after the first infusion we take the oil and infuse again with fresh, dried flowers. Many people are under the assumption that fresh is the only way to infuse Calendula Flowers, when, in fact, if done fresh the water content causes the integrity of the oil to drop and it becomes rancid more quickly. This is why we use dried blossoms.
Calendula stimulates the formation of new tissue, and has anti-inflammatory properties which are soothing to the skin. Excellent for damaged or injured skin tissue, as calendula gently promotes blood circulation, which helps with the healing process.

Sediment from the Calendula Blossoms is natural. Although we filter the final product several times, there is always going to be some sediment. This is natural and good. This tells you that it is truly an infused oil and that it was not made with an extract. With even a bit of sediment, the oil will continue to infuse and become darker. You can run this through a coffee filter to strain if this is bothersome.
