Coconut oil has thousands of uses. It’s high in antioxidants, making it wonderful for both cooking and in skin care. Calendula flowers have amazing skin care properties. It’s antiseptic, antibacterial, and helps to heal minor abrasions and wounds. It calms skin, including the skin of both eczema and psoriasis sufferers. Many choose to infuse calendula in oil. This way, the oil absorbs the wonderful benefits and properties of the calendula. It makes it easy to apply, and to include in skin care products like soaps, balms, and more.

Infusing calendula coconut oil is much easier than you may think. However, doing it the right way will take some time. We’re talking up to 6 weeks time! We promise it is worth the wait, because this infused oil will last a very long time, and has many benefits to enjoy.

To make it, fill a standard mason glass jar up 3/4 of the way with dry calendula flowers. Separately, use a double boiler on the lowest heat setting to melt about two 1/2 cups of Virgin Coconut Oil. Fill the jar with the coconut oil. Now comes the longest part. Replace the lid and keep it sealed, but stir the mixture once every three days. In six weeks, your concoction will be ready! Simply strain out the flowers, and keep the infused oil in the same glass jar.

Ways to use Calendula Coconut Oil

You can use your calendula oil in many recipes, just the same as coconut oil. For example, if you would like an extra skin-calming body butter, use a coconut oil body butter recipe. Replace the coconut oil ingredient with your calendula coconut oil, and follow all of the same instructions.

Alternatively, you can use the oil all on its own. If you have a minor scrape or bruise, you can rub on a small amount of the oil for a quicker recovery. Take a small amount in your hands, and apply to areas with irritated or inflamed skin. This truly is a versatile skin care creation, so play with it and make as many creations as you want!
