Her is my volunteer Calendula next to my volunteer tomatoes. Calendula is wonderful for soothing all manner of skin issues.
I harvested some of the flowers (the plants like to be dead headed anyway)
Pop them into a jar and poured grape seed oil over them. I have since added more oil and more flowers. Close lid tightly Put it in a cool dark cupboard and shake it every now and then. As with all infusions it takes a few weeks, then you can use it as oil or I am going to be trying to mix it with coconut oil to make a lotion. Wish me luck I will show you how that turns out.
