Calendula is an herb of ancient medical repute, said to 'comfort the heart and spirits.' I plant it between the rows in my garden and it helps with weed and pest control. The large, sunny flowers keep things looking cheerful, while picking the sticky blossoms provides evidence of the the skin soothing properties it promises. Contributing to calendula's soothing properties is the hardy addition of shea butter. Essential oils of rosewood and cinnamon add heady comfort to beauty and all is well. . . .
