Life is too short to worry about it
the first things you see when you walk into a department store? Skin products and lots of them. Different manufacturers offer exotic creams crafted out of everything from somebody’s leftover placenta to the food off some poor bee’s plate. French and Swiss companies purveying little tubes with huge price tags, selling us a variety of salves, lotions, creams, ointments, and pomades to pour over our bodies’ delicate covering, our skin. And we buy, buy, and buy, shelling out millions of dollars each year for the privilege of dabbing fine ointments on ourselves.
Unbeknownst to you, the all-time best substance for the skin can be had by planting a single plant in your backyard. A cream made of this plant will make the most expensive skin ointment look like margarine. This epidermal wonder is a plant called calendula, known in herbalist circles as "mother of the skin." The extra-good news is that for one-quarter the price of that tube of fancy skin cream, you can put in an acre of the plant that will make your skin as smooth and clear as a baby’s behind. Of course, you won’t need that much – ten plants should do for a family of four. And unlike many of the expensive creams, calendula cream will actually make a big difference in the way your skin feels and looks.
We have been growing, harvesting and infusing our own oils since 1998. This amazing flower is in our base for all of our creams and moisturizers. It can be found in:
Calendula is truly the miracle worker for our skin, whether a person has lumps or bumps, scabs that won’t heal, eczema, athlete’s foot, acne, or even herpes sores. Perusing old herbals, the reader quickly discovers that calendula has been used to treat every skin condition ever dreamed up. It is an all-purpose skin-healing agent. Not surprisingly, wherever calendula grows, it is used to treat the skin. It has also worked well at healing skin damage caused from radiation treatments.
Not only is calendula a product with a universal endorsement, it has stood the test of time. We are talking about a track record of at least 1,000 years. Even more exciting, it is perfectly safe. Next time you take a walk through James Bay you will probably notice these beautiful yellow and orange flowers.
