Massage & Body Oil – Marigold & Lavender
100% natural, packed with the best quality ingredients and, of course, handmade with much love x
Regenerating, healing, soothing and analgesic for all skin types and skin conditions including sensitive skin. Wonderful as as baby oil.
Marigold (botanical name Calendula), is a real sun-lover that radiates vitality and optimism. The beautiful orange and yellow flowers are harvested fresh from our herbal garden on a sunny day and macerated in the sun to produce this deep orange therapeutic oil.
We enhance the remarkable healing powers of this oil further by adding pure essential oil of 'alpine Lavender' so called because it is grown at high altitude in Provence and in the mountains of other Mediterranean regions. This is believed to intensify the healing value of the plant, as well as its wonderful, fresh scent .
Harvesting the delightful Marigold flowers and processing them into this deeply penetrating oil is, for us, an annual feast for the senses. One of our most favourite tasks!
Both Marigold & Lavender have been known, loved and used for centuries in Europe. They are two of most versatile herbs used in western herbal medicine (WHM). Valued for their healing, soothing, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and analgesic effects, and for promoting accelerated production of new skin tissue.
