The herb Calendula has been used traditionally for hundreds, possibly thousands of years to soothe inflammation and promote healing. It is now known that it contains many beneficial compounds such as caretenoids and flavenoids. Today it is widely recognised as a non-steroid treatment for problem skin. It is also used to help heal tattoos, skin damaged with radiation therapy and to improve and prevent stretch marks.
Marshmallow is an amazing emollient and it really does make a difference when skin is severely cracked or dry. It's a great herb for new or expectant mums as it can soothe and quicky repair severely damaged skin such as cracked or sore nipples, prevent and improve stretch marks and will greatly improve hands damaged by a lot of time spent in water. It's not just for mums though, gardeners, anyone with hard working hands or any dry or cracked skin can benefit immensely from using this herb.

Water free - A small pot goes a surprisingly long way. We don't do a bigger economy pot as yet, but we are offering a multibuy discount.
We are 100% Natural, but not 100% Organic. We choose organic ingredients when we feel the benefits justify the extra cost. We always choose cold pressed oils to avoid the solvents used in the refining process which destroy many theraputic properties. This common sense approach enables us deliver the purest skin care at the best price. For further explanation of this see our organic vs natural page.
