Here are our 7 easy ways to use Calendula Oil in macadamia infusion.
1: Eye oil
Two drops are all you’ll need.
At night after cleansing your skin apply two drops of calendula macadamia oil infusion to the tips of your ring fingers. Gently pat the oil drops around the edge of your orbital bone (eye socket) with your eyes closed.
Be very careful not to stretch or pull on this delicate skin. Wait a few minutes for your skin to absorb the oil and then lightly blot with a facial tissue to remove any excess.
2: Lip conditioner
Massage lips with one drop of calendula oil whenever they feel a little dry.
3: Cuticle softener
Regularly massage a drop or two of calendula oil into the cuticles on your finger and toenails to keep them supple and healthy. If you do this daily after a shower in a few weeks your cuticles should look healthy and nourished and your finger nails strong and shiny.
4: Dry skin restorer
A drop or two on dry itchy skin patches will soothe and restore balance. Calendula infusion is also excellent for maintaining the skin on your heels so that your feet stay soft. You can rub it into your feet before going to bed, and slip on a pair of soft cotton socks, the oil will penetrate your skin during the night and the socks will prevent the oil from rubbing off and staining your bed linen.
5: Bath salts
Add a full dropper of calendula macadamia oil infusion to a cup of Epsom salts and mix thoroughly before adding to your bath for a relaxing soak. You can also crumble in some lavender flowers and rose petals, for a luxurious home spa experience.
6: Skin scrub
You can make an excellent skin scrub for rough skin. In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons of fine sea salt, some fresh organic citrus zest, a teaspoon of warmed liquid coconut oil and 10 drops of calendula oil infusion.
Put a small amount into the palms of your hands, rub palms together lightly and then massage over areas of dry or rough skin eg. knees, elbows and heels.
Wash off with warm water and pat dry.
Remember you are polishing skin…not trying to sand wood. Be gentle on yourself.
7: Make your own salve
Warm six parts calendula oil and blend with one part melted beeswax. Pour into in a little sterilised jar. When the mixture cools it will make a nice soft calendula salve.
