Calendula Lotion Recipe
Today we harvested our calendula heads. We are soaking them in olive oil to prepare them for our calendula lotion recipe
We will infuse the oil for several weeks, strain out the flowers then use the oil in our lotion recipe. For now they look lovely in the kitchen.
All-Purpose Calendula Lotion
1 cup organic shea butter
1/2 cup organic coconut oil
1/2 cup calendula infused olive oil
About a 1 inch cube of solid beeswax
10-15 drops lavender essential oil
Heat the shea butter, coconut oil, olive oil and beeswax together over a double boiler. When melted, refrigerate until it starts to set. Let it sit out until it is room temperature. Whip in food processor until all lumps are gone. Add lavender essential oil and whip until it is mixed well. Store in a pint size mason jar.
We use this as a face cream, eye makeup remover, for dry skin and rashes. It works great even on diaper rashes and as an eye cream. Coconut oil is a natural wrinkle reducer and calendula is great for your complexion. Talk about all-purpose!
