Our balm is loaded with 100% natural goodness from Calendula flowers. Calendula is known to soothe irritated skin, especially when blended with skin-loving ingredients and healing essential oils.
Calendula has been used for centuries as a healing herb and is one of the oldest known skin remedies. Did you know we grow our very own calendula flowers right here in Langley! They are gently picked just before the blossoms open and laid out to dry on our racks. Once completely air-dried, they are hand plucked and put away to be used in our oil infusions, bath bombs and floral, herb steam facial kits.
Our oil infusion for this cream is a proprietary blend of herbs and flowers that are infused for 3-4 weeks before being hand-mixed into our famous balm.
Our calendula-based cream is gently blended with beeswax,, organic lavender essential oil, calendula-infused sweet almond oil and apricot kernel oil, olive oil, rose petals, lavender petals, chamomile buds, and jojoba oil. Made with only natural, pure ingredients:
