I was first introduced to this herb through the best darn fashion manicurist in the world - Ms. Angel Williams! I inquired about natural remedies for my skin because I deal with this annoying breakout each and every summer. Ugh! It is totally a killer for sandal season!
She told me about calendula and shared that it was in fact a healing herb. Calendula is also great for wound healing and yields a soothing feeling for irritated skin. The tea of calendula can be drank and is rumored to aid with bladder infections, menstrual cramps and even pink eye!
What is so beautiful about calendula is that it is actually a flower! To know that your skin can be soothed and healed with the aid of a beautiful flower just feels right.
You have already read about my experience with the Kiss My Face moisturizer, however I have also had the experience of trying another product - The Magic Stick that contains this wonderful healing herb as a primary ingredient.
What about hair?
Similarly to the way calendula can heal or soothe dry skin, it can also condition (or hydrate) dry hair. Many BoBeam hair teas are mixed with calendula and the conditioning properties of this herb are superb!
