Calendula Soap

Our newest soap bar to our lineup is Calendula.

Calendula (kə-len-jə-lə) comes from the daisy family, is considered a pot marigold and is native to the Mediterranean region.

Calendula is beneficial in skin care to soothe inflammation and is known for its antiseptic properties. This soap bar is very gentle, making it wonderful for sensitive skin and it can be used as a face or body soap.

Not only does our Calendula soap have beautiful petals throughout the bar, but it also has the Calendula infused right into the Olive Oil that is used to make the soap…adding a richness to it over your average Calendula soap bar.

We have chosen to keep this bar unscented adding no fragrance oils or essential oils and although there are no noted precautions with calendula, those with plant based allergies may want to do a patch test before using.

To complete this fabulous cold process soap bar we have added shea butter. Shea butter is soothing and moisturizing and helps create a great conditioning bar making a wonderful creamy lather.

Our Calendula soap will be ready in a couple weeks after its cure, so be sure to check back when it’s ready and snag a bar for you.

I love how simple, yet beautiful this soap is! Calendula is one of my favorite things to add to soaps. =)

Thanks Anne-Marie, I love its symplicity as well, and it is now my new favorite soap, your sunshine cp soap post is what inspired this, but in the end I kept it simple and instead planning to do something similar to your sunshine soap without the petals. :)
