Calendula Caress Flora Fusions Californian, Herbal Flower Oils
Calendula is a remarkable restorer of the human flesh, with outstanding anti-inflammatory, vulnerary and disinfectant properties. The maternal, comforting qualities of Calendula Caress make it ideal for the delicate skin of infants and children,
and as a beneficent balm for birthing and nursing mothers.
Calendula Caress bestows a calming, quieting touch and should be used for all forms of irritation and inflammation. Compresses of Calendula can be applied to areas of internal
inflammation, such as the digestive organs, or to parts of the body which are swollen, such as the lymphatic glands. On a more subtle level, Calendula Caress helps bring us into a gentle and loving disposition of soul, showing us the path by which we can heal others with our own word and touch. Calendula was named by the Romans who observed that this plant blooms nearly every month of the calendar year. Through Calendula Caress we come to the very essence of the Seasons of the Soul journey – that what lives in Nature as a creative, nurturing force can also live in our own hearts.
