Calendula Balm – Flower Power from the Smallgarden


Free from artificial fragrance and essential oils, the proven healing and soothing benefits of calendula make this a useful balm to have in your medicine drawer. Speeding up cell regrowth, calming redness, itch, wounds and fungal problems, calendula is a power flower with a sunny disposition! Safe, gentle and long lasting, the balms consistency means that a little goes a long way and soon sinks into your skin leaving it comfortably non-greasy.


I grow the calendula (pot marigold) in my garden. I pick a few everyday through the long growing season and add them to the drying rack, I then infuse them into organic sunflower oil, and leave them to release their medicinal values for 6 – 8 weeks. This infusion is then added to rich butters and oils to create this lovely balm.



Not only is calendula beautiful but it is also a skin-healing power flower. After picking and drying I infuse the calendula flower heads into organic sunflower oil (the medicinal properties reside in the flower head). Sunflower oil is non-comedogenic, meaning it won't block your pores, it is high in beta-carotene and vitamin E and works beautifully with calendula. This infusion is then added to mango butter, sweet almond oil, and wheat germ. These ingredients create a silky smooth balm that sinks into your skin without leaving a greasy feel. Calendula has long been known as a healing herb, especially in places where 'the sun doesn't shine.' As a bonus, if you are a young maiden and you touch a calendula flower with your bare foot you will be able to understand the language of birds!

Calendula's main essence is to bring sunshine and clarity,  in winter kitchen gardens the flowers can survive nearly all year round. The flowers were used in winter stews and soups which were known as 'pottage', hence its name 'pot marigold'.

Eaten or applied Calendula is a noted antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, and when used topically in salves, it can treat bruises, burns, sores, skin ulcers, skin infections, eczema, and rashes.

Each tin holds a minimum of 50g.

    This Calendula balm is very good for eczema – we’ve been using it on my granddaughters skin, and it has an immediate soothing, hydrating effect. It seems to have a much better longer-term effect than other calendula creams we’ve used. I’ve also been using it for my shins which get very dry and itchy particularly after shaving my legs. The itching would get so bad that it’d affect my sleep, until I started using this calendula balm, which soothes, heals and hydrates beautifully. I think part of the reason it’s so effective is that it’s not a cream and therefore doesn’t have lots of chemicals to preserve/stabilise it.
