People have been using the flower petals of Calendula for medicinalpurposes for many years. High amount of flavonoids are contained in the plant which is helpful to protect the body against cell damaging free radicals.
The plant has anti-viral, anti-genotoxic, anti-tumor, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects. Calendula flowers contain saponins whichproduce the anti-inflammatory properties. According to pharmacalogical studies in Europe, calendula flowers promote metabolism of proteins and collogen. This also means, thatthey help to grow new, healthy cells.
Calendula is typically used as a local remedy for its antiseptic and healing properties in treating burns, skin infections, punctures, cuts, scrapes, abrasions, blisters, scalds, rashes (including diaper rash), acne and athletes foot.
Sunflower oil is the base in all of Yemaya Natural ointments and massage oils. We use certified organic sunflower oil which is unrefined (no degumming, defoaming, bleaching, deodorizing etc.) and are GMO-free. It does not require hydrogenation, a process used in many commercial oils to extend shelf life.The oil is cold-pressed on demand on a local farm where the sunflowers are grown organically without the use of pesticides or herbicides. The oil is bottled quickly to retain all of its nutritional value. It is 100% pure and contains no additives.
