Excellent!I used this in conjunction with hyaluronic acid serum and taking collagen peptides (orally) after using Efudex for actinic keratoses on my face and lips. The skin erosion was painful and looked terrible. The oil was soothing. After a month, my skin has healed so beautifully, it's like I have new skin! The two worst spots are barely noticeable now and I am continuing the oil.
no other oil I've tried in the past has compared to herb pharm. they know what they're doing when it comes to making medicine with effective menstruum ratios. this is a dark yellow orange oil, rich in color from calendula petals. i swap out the cap for a glass dropper for easier use. getting this large bottle is a lot more cost effective and makes me feel like I don't have to use it so sparingly or preciously. great to add into diy remedies, etc. i mostly use it straight on skin from wounds to scars to sensitive areas. an effective, but gentle antibiotic. i even use this on nasal sores, etc. really my absolute favorite topical plant remedy to have on hand. if i could only choose one, this would be it. will stain light colored clothing tho, so take appropriate precautions
Calendula is one of the most calming plants/oils. This one is mixed with olive oil so it is not 100% calendula. The oil is very soothing for my skin and I use it a night when my skin feels inflamed/irritated or sometimes on my psoriasis spots because this is harmless. Sometimes I mix it with my night cream on my face. Careful with clothes as it has a strong orange color.
I haven't used much of this yet, just a few drops in a salve I was making for a friends wedding gift, but i heard calendula oil is pretty good for skin care in general so I guess I'll know more the more I use it, but again, I haven't used this just solo on my skin.. though I'm sure it's pretty great, especially for what the price was.
Wow. I absolutely love to use herb pharm products. The packaging, size and quality of this oil is superb. This calendula oil is healing and beautiful yet not cost prohibitive like many other oils on the market. It's moisturizing, nourishing and of incredible quality. iHerb continues to impress with beneficial oils and medicinal plant products.
