Calendula or flamenquilla is a valuable medicinal plant, it can be used both internally and externally. Nor can you miss it in your garden since apart from the fact that it is a very beautiful plant due to its bright colors, they will help you regulate some insect pests.
In this post I show you how to make the wonderful calendula oil for topical use, it is highly valued for its therapeutic properties such as: antimicrobial, antiviral, fungicidal, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and healing.
The topical use of calendula oil can help you alleviate many skin conditions such as itching, acne, wounds, burns, tired legs, insect bites and irritations (irritated nose when you are constipated).
This plant is rich in flavonoids, which reduces inflammation and aging of cells, repairing the skin. It will help you to reduce the scars and stretch marks that you already have and that they do not come out again.
What you need to do the maceration
Dried marigold flowers
Sterilized glass jar
Preparation for the maceration of the oil
1. The first thing is to fill a sterilized glass jar with dried marigold flowers.
2. Now, you add the almond oil to the brim, you have to cover all the flowers.
3. You close the bottle hermetically and stick a label with the name and the date that you have done it. After this process, you shake the jar with the calendula flowers every day, putting it in the sun for no more than two hours because otherwise the oil will go rancid (avoid the central hours of the day).
4. After the thirty days it takes to make this maceration, you have to strain the oil into another fully sterilized pot. I have used a cloth bag, but you can do it with a strainer. To keep it in perfect condition, store it in the fridge.
Your calendula oil is ready to use. As soon as you start applying it to the affected areas, you will see immediate relief!
To sterilize the glass jar and lid, cook for five minutes. Then you put it to drain on a clean cloth upside down.
Do not throw the marigold flowers when you strain them, you can use them to make a poultice.
Pregnant or breastfeeding women should avoid using the oil in case of an allergic reaction.
Try a small patch on your hand before applying, in case you are allergic to plants in the daisy, aster, chrysanthemum, ragweed or calendula family.
