Calendula is the first among the flowers and not last among the bath essence especially for women

Calendula, also known as marigold, bride of the sun, bull flower, butterwort, drunkard gold etc. has been widely used on many remedies. In Latin Calends means the origin of the world. The Romans called the first day of each month Calends. The root of the word appears in the name of the plant Calendula officinalis, which becomes the first one on the Earth. It makes us happy by its bright yellow and orange flowers and rich fresh greens. It is undemanding and grows up on any ground.
Calendula has a magic ability to heal the skin. So Calendula extract is commonly used in ointments and healing creams and treating washes. Calendula ointments cure burns, bruises, and cuts, as well as the minor infections they cause, eye inflammation, irritant contact dermatitis. Moreover Calendula’s remedy is blood purification and circulation problems solving. It makes your skin elastic. Tinctures, liquid extracts, infusions are good drugs for insomnia, dizziness, terrible headache and nervous system disorders.
And now imagine how this effect of the extract benefits with the bath steam! Especially it can be interesting for ladies who want to keep the skin young and fresh longer. It’s better to unite bath procedure and healing masks with Calendula pedal extract to intensify the healthy power. The preparation is as simple as of a Chamomile extract. You need 3,5 oz (100 g) of dried pedals. The essence is light and not as strong as Eucalyptus or Mint aromas. For great smell especially for sauna it’s preferable to use an alcohol tincture.
