Weleda did a genius thing when they infused the powerful healing and anti-inflammatory properties from a daisy-like flower into nourishing body lotions and oils. The Calendula Oil and Lotion only take a couple drops to moisturize and protect skin after a bath.
Inside the Ingredients of the Oil
Ingredients: Sweet Almond Oil, Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract, Chamomile Flower Extract, fragrance from natural essential oils, Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol.
|Extremely Safe||Reasonably Safe||Proceed with Caution||Insufficient Data|
Sweet almond oil is one of my favorite oils for skin. It is mild and full of essential fatty acids, which keeps the skin moisturized and improves the skin’s barrier function.
The limonene, linalool, and geraniol are naturally present in some essential oils; they aren’t separate ingredients that were added to the formula. A small portion of the population is irritated by these, but most are not.
Benefits for Babies
Considering that this has become one of my favorite body products, I should probably mention that it is intended for scrumptious little baby bodies and their adorable little diaper rashes and their cutesy little cradle cap. I never even tried it on my own skin until my daughter was about 6 months old, and it left me wondering what other secrets the baby aisle is holding.
