ST. FRANCIS CALENDULA OIL - 50ML
Calendula Oil is traditionally used in Herbal Medicine to help relieve skin inflammations and irritations and to aid in wound healing. Calendula is effective for skin conditions, speeding and enhancing the healing process and promoting tissue regeneration. Not surprisingly, studies have shown that this herb has antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties.
Used topically to aid wound healing and for minor burns and abrasions, lacerations, swellings, contusions and muscle joint strains and sprains, our Calendula Oil is made from Certified Organically grown flowering tops of calendula infused in extra virgin olive oil. This product has a consistency that it gives it a different range of application options than Calendula Salve. Calendula Oil can be added to a bath, for example, or worked into the scalp or a bandage.
Plant pharmacological studies have suggested that Calendula extracts may have anti-viral, anti-genotoxic, and anti-inflammatory properties in vitro.In an in vitro assay, the methanol extract of C. officinalis exhibited antibacterial activity and both the methanol and the ethanol extracts showed antifungal activities. Along with horsetails (Equisetum arvense), pot marigold is one of the few plants which is considered astringent despite not being high in tannins.
