Botany. Calendula is native to Europe and the genus Calendula native to the Mediterranean countries. Calendula is an annual with an angular hairy stem 1 to 2 feet high with hairy leaves that are alternate, sessile, oblanceolate, and dentate with widely spaced teeth. From June to October, it blooms a terminate, bright, golden-orange, aster flower that looks like the sun.

History. Medicinal properties of calendula have been used in Ayurvedic and Unani system of medicine indicating that leaves and flowers are antipyretic, anti-inflammatory, antiepileptic and antimicrobial. In traditional and homoeopathic medicine, calendula has been used for poor eyesight, menstrual irregularities, varicose veins, hemorrhoids and duodenal ulcers. In traditional Greek medicine, it was used as a warming agent to promote sweating and break deep fever. In the middle ages, calendula flowers were used for liver obstructions, snake bites, and to strengthen the heart. The plant was said to have been brought to England in the thirteenth century and then spread across Europe. Its therapeutic usage seems to be most widespread from the thirteenth century onwards, particularly in wound healing. It was a traditional European peasant tonic to prevent sickness in the winter. It was used in the eighteenth century as a remedy for headache, jaundice, and red eyes. The plant has history within the United States being used to treat wounds and skin abrasions. The plant was employed in the Civil War to treat wounds and as a remedy for measles, smallpox, and jaundice and was used as a salve in World War II as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory.

Constituents. The flower contains terpenes (as stigmasterols, sitosterols, diesters of diols, 3-monoesters of taraxasterol, faradiol-3-O-palmitate, ψ-taraxasterol, lupeol, erythrodiol, faradiol-3-O-myristate, and arnidiol-3-O-laurate), triterpenes (calendulosides A-D), flavonoids (including narcissin, soquercetin, chlorogenic acid, calendoflaside, calendoflavoside, calendoflavobioside, rutin, isoquercitrin, neohesperidoside, soquercetin, and isorhamnetin-3-O-β-D-glucoside), coumarins (esculetin, scopoletin, and umbelliferone), quinones (plastoquinone, ubiquinone, α-tocopherol, and phylloquinone), carotenoids (neoxanthin, lycopene, lutein, and carotene), resins, volatile oil, and minerals (including iodine), which contribute to its many qualities.

Our calendula flowers, Calendula officinalis, are organic, non-GMO, and Kosher. Among the various species of the genus Calendula, Calendula officinalis is the only one that is medicinally used throughout the world. The plant is listed in German Commission E, European Scientific Co-operative on Phytotherapy, British Herbal Pharmacopoeia, and World Health Organization monographs for wound healing and anti-inflammatory actions. Pharmacological studies reveal that calendula exhibits antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, and antioxidant properties. A bibliometric study of research data conducted from 1971 to 2021 indicated the flower's vast evidence of the anti-inflammatory, wound-healing, and anti-microbial properties and extensive research of the antioxidant compounds, terpenes, and volatile oils. The flower has been long valued as a skin by protecting skin, treating skin abrasions and wounds, soothing inflammation and bruising, and encouraging skin regeneration and granulation and other functions of skin. The healing vulnerary effect appears to be based on the terpene content. Calendula can be used when there is inflammation on the skin, bruising, sprains, any external bleeding, wounds, abrasions, rashes, minor burns, and fungal infections. Calendula's anti-inflammatory effect helps inflammation on the skin due to an infection or a wound, and research shows that calendula has and properties, which can reduce risk of infection and enhance its use as a vulnerary. The herb keeps inflammation from spreading and has a special affinity for swollen, hot, painful, pus-filled tissue. The properties can help combat fungal infections, like diaper rashes, tinea infection (ringworm, athlete's foot, and jock itch), and Candidiasis (yeast infections caused by the Candida species). Calendula can help burns and it has been shown to improve symptoms including reddening, swelling, blistering, pain, soreness, and heat sensitivity. The flower has shown to help surgical wounds rate of healing and prevent acute dermatitis on post-operative radiation therapy with less frequent interruption of radiotherapy and reduced radiation-induced pain. Another study showed that when calendula was applied twice a day for 3 weeks to venous leg ulcers, a decrease of 41.71% in the surface size of the wound was achieved compared to saline solution dressings, suggesting the positive effects of salves of calendula.

Safety Considerations. Calendula may cause allergic reactions to those sensitive to plants in the family.

Our highly aromatic lavender flowers, Lavandula angustifolia, are organic, non-GMO, and Kosher. The of this beautiful herb consist of a high content of volatile oils: (linalyl acetate, linalol, lavandulyl acetate, borneol, limonene); coumarins: (umbelliferone and coumarin); triterpenes; and flavonoids. The effects of these compounds include rubefacientRubefacient herbs generate a localized increase in blood flow when applied to the skin, reddening the skin, to stimulate the dilation of the capillaries increasing blood circulation often helping internal pains, muscle spasms or cramps, and arthritic joints. and . The rubefacient effect is stimulatingStimulant herbs quicken and enliven whole physiological activity of the body, including laxatives, circulatory stimulants, and digestive bitters. and can increase localized blood flow helping healing, cleansing, and nourishment to allow proper blood circulation throughout the body that can allay restlessness, ease muscular pain, encourage healing, and allow the body to calm. The rubefacient and antispasmodic activity of lavender is particularly helpful in times of restlessness, nervous debility, muscle spasms, and the aches and pains of rheumatism. As a stimulating rub, lavender can be applied to sore muscles and joints, restless legs, sprains, strains, muscle spasms, and any rheumatic stiffness, aches, and pains. Because of the high volatile content, lavender has a powerful aroma that is quite significant. Part of an aromatic effect is due to the actions on the nose as the olfactory nerves pick up scent molecules from them and transmit the smell to the brain where a reaction is triggered. The aroma of lavender has a relaxing nervine effect, promoting sleep and calming the mind and body, and lavender's aroma has also been shown to have an uplifting and anti-depressant effect, specifically in combination with other therapies. The aroma can relax and relieve headaches, particularly when nervous or stress-related.

Essential oil. Our lavender, Lavandula angustifolia, essential oil is organic, non-GMO, and Kosher. Highly concentrated and potent, essential oil contains the volatile chemical compounds from the plant parts. A plant can produce 2 types of oils differing very much from each other, one is fixed, and the other volatile. The fixed oil is found in the seeds and fruit and contains fatty acids. The volatile oil is found in every other part of the plant, excluding the seeds, and contains the aromatic essence or spirit. Lavender essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the lavender flowers. Our pure essential oil carries a relaxing sweet floral evergreen aroma.

Coconut oil

Cocos nucifera

fixed oil

Our coconut oil is extra virgin (unrefined), fair trade, organic, non-GMO, and Kosher. The oil is extracted from the raw meat of the coconut from the coconut palm, Cocos nucifera. The oil is clear to light yellow in color and carries a rich aroma. Coconut oil is composed of many fatty acids, including lauric acid (49%), myristic acid (18%), palmitic acid (8%), caprylic acid (8%), capric acid (7%), oleic acid (6%), linoleic acid (2%), and stearic acid (2%). Coconut oil has shown , , , , and actions. Plant oils keep skin nourished and protected to help preserve its function as a barrier to keep out bacteria, promote the healing of wounds and scars, and retain overall skin integrity. Comprising of almost 50% of coconut oil, lauric acid displays beneficial skin healing and homeostasis. Monolaurin, which is derived from lauric acid, has antimicrobial activity by disintegrating the lipid membrane of lipid-coated bacteria, including Propionibacterium acnes, Staphylococcus aureus, and Staphylococcus epidermidis. The oil, in concentrations of 5% to 40%, was shown to have activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, and Bacillus subtilis. It was also studied and found to be an effective agent against Candida species. In one study, virgin coconut oil was shown to heal wounds faster, improve status, and higher turnover of collagen, which is an important protein for skin to heal from wounds or damage and for skin's elasticity and integrity. Coconut oil can promote healing in wounds and contribute to protective barrier functions of the skin. Topical applications of virgin coconut oil was shown to be effective in decreasing the severity of skin conditions and atopic dermatitis. Virgin coconut oil has been found to have not only an effect, but a pain-relieving effect as well. It has shown to decrease eczema severity indicating it more effective than mineral oil. Coconut oil protects the skin from UV radiation. The sun protection factor (SPF) is a measure of the effectiveness of sunscreen protection, with the higher SPF value, the more protection against ultraviolet radiations causing sunburn. Coconut oil is found to have a SPF value of 8.The oil can lower inflammation in the skin after UVB radiation. Oils are effective for producing a uniform and long-lasting layer of sunscreen on the skin, and their emollient properties protect the skin against the drying effects of exposure to wind and sun.

Vitamin E oil

Tocopherols from Non-GMO Soy

Our pure organic vitamin E oil is derived from non-GMO soybean oil. This rich, thick oil is amber-colored and a heavy . Vitamin E is an that can protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. Antioxidants are compounds that help the body fight stress and prevent oxidation, which is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals and chain reactions. Free radicals are formed in the body when exposed to waste products, bacteria, viruses, ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun, air pollution, cigarette smoke, and environmental toxins.
