As marigold tufts decorate altars for festive celebrations like El DIa De Los Muertos think of all the benefits this golden flower holds for your body and skin’s health. Found in the regions of the Americas, Western Asia and Europe, Calendula Officinalis is one of the magnificent floral varieties in the marigold family tree better known as Asteraceae.

Calendula’s first major benefit is that it contains flavonoids, a plant based antioxidant that protects epidermal cells from free radicals. Applying this rich flower to your skin creates a barrier against environmental damage from pollution, smoke, smog, and a broad range of chemicals ever present in the atmosphere of daily living. Truly an age-defying skin care potion.

This vivid multi-petal flower has been used topically to reliably treat eczema, burns, wounds, and numerous other skin irritations. It is a natural anti-inflammatory that easily soothes flare-ups and swelling of skin after exposure to the elements. Calendula is superb at reducing acne outbreaks in small doses. So you can toss the chemical anti-acne treatments in favor of the perfect floral solution to some of the most common skin ailments. The natural moisturizing properties present in calendula oil make it the best skin care ingredient for alleviating winter dry skin.
