Calendula Cream – Recipe
In order to prepare this remedy at home, you will need calendula dried flowers, olive oil and beeswax. By adding beeswax, this remedy will aim at better hydrating and protecting your skin, treating skin conditions such as acne, irritations, swellings, and redness.
- 120 ml calendula oil
- 10 g beeswax
In order to obtain the calendula oil, you will need calendula dried flowers and olive oil. Place the petals in a glass jar, next pour the oil so that it soaks them completely.
Close the jar hermetically and leave it macerate for 3-4 days, in a sunny place; for instance on the window sill. After this time has passed, strain the content using a gauze.
Now, you may use the resulted oil for the preparation of the calendula cream. The recipe is quite simple. Put the calendula oil and the grated beeswax in a bain-marie pot on the simmer. Mix the composition until the beeswax is melted completely.
Take the pot off the fire and stir rapidly until the mixture is completely homogenized. It will cool off really quickly. Pour the obtained composition in a tiny glass jar or in a recipient from a previous cream. Keep the remedy at low temperature.
