Discover this bright flower’s beauty benefits yourself with this easy DIY infused oil recipe:

  1. Fill a glass jar with dried and crumbled calendula petals.
  2. Cover them by an inch with a carrier oil, such as olive, almond, jojoba, or sunflower oil.
  3. Place the jar in a sunny spot for two or more weeks, shaking at least once per day to help extract the flowers’ healing properties.
  4. Drain petals from the oil and apply to skin as needed.
