    Calendula

    Handmade Organic Calendula Ointment with Essential Oil

    My handmade calendula ointment is made from a calendula olive oil extract, Swiss beeswax and lanolin wool wax. Scented with a blend of lavender essentials and tea tree oil.

    The calendula (Calendula officinalis) has been used as a medicinal plant for centuries. The flower with the bright orange-yellow flowers is used especially in the marigold ointment. Thanks to the healthy ingredients, the effect and application of the ointment ranges from anti-inflammatory to decongestant.

    Effect and ingredients of marigold ointment

    The flowers of calendula contain, among other things, essential oils, antibacterial agents, fatty acids as well as carotenoids and flavonoids. These ingredients counteract inflammation and fight bacteria. They also help to subside swelling. For these reasons, the ointment is ideal for supporting the skin in wound healing. Especially small abrasions heal better if they are treated with marigold ointment.

    Even with a sunburn, you can use the ointment, for example, ideally. Small foci of inflammation, such as Bibeli, can be treated with calendula.

    In addition, the ointment from calendula helps with dry skin. Because of its versatile effect, calendula is a popular ingredient in natural cosmetics.

    Application on the skin
    Affected skin areas can be rubbed with the ointment several times a day. Massage the ointment with gentle, circular movements. If there is a wound, you need to check that it is clean before rubbing it in.

    About me
    All my products are handmade by me in very small batches in my studio in St. Gallen. My soap is cold process soap, which means that I make the recipe from scratch with full control over all ingredients. Each bar of soap matures for 4 to 6 weeks. This ensures that all water has evaporated and leads to a harder bar of soap that lasts longer.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Care instructions

    Tips to extend the life of your soap

    Place your soap in a bowl that will drain (not flat on the tile or in a non-draining bowl!) And make sure it doesn't get wet between uses. This is optional, but it will definitely help your soap last longer

    How long do your soaps mature?

    My soaps mature 4 to 6 weeks open on the shelf so that they can dry well. My pure olive oil soap needs to mature for at least 6 months or more.

    What do you use titanium dioxide for?

    I use titanium dioxide to lighten the soap, depending on the raw materials, the natural soap can be green, yellow or brown. In nature, titanium dioxide is widespread in the form of the minerals rutile and ilmenite (together with iron). Titanium dioxide is non-toxic and not harmful to water.

    Which soap for extremely dry skin?

    All of my natural soaps are suitable for dry skin. Milk soaps in particular are ideal for dry skin.

    PH of soaps, don't they dry out the skin?

    Definitely no. Natural soaps (please do not confuse them with industrial soaps) are always basic. The pH value is 8.5 - 10. This is absolutely harmless to our skin. Amniotic fluid. E.g. has a pH value of 8.5 and let's be honest, is there a more beautiful and softer skin than baby skin?

    What is NaOH?

    NaOH aka caustic soda or sodium hydroxide is an essential ingredient in soap production. Our lye is made from common table salt dissolved in water, and electrodes add electricity to the mixture, creating chloride, hydrogen and lye. This material has been used in natural soap production for centuries. When used correctly, it can help make safe natural products. However, according to European cosmetic laws, you will not find sodium hydroxide on our labels as it is not included in the end products.

    Can children use natural soaps?

    Yeah sure! Children in particular benefit from the mild cleaning and natural care

    Custom and personalized orders

    Yes, of course I can. Just contact me directly, then we can discuss it.

    Versendest du auch ausserhalb der Schweiz?

    Ja ich versende auch in andere Länder. Leider kann ich dies nicht kostenlos anbieten!

    Es können Zölle und Einfuhrgebühren fällig werden. Bitte informiert euch über die gesetzlichen Bedienungen in eurem Land.

    Where do your raw materials come from?

    It is very different. Raw materials such as rapeseed oil, sunflower oil, hemp oil, goat and sheep milk, honey, herbs and plants come from Switzerland.
    Well-known raw materials such as coconut oil, shea butter, babassu oil, olive oil, grape seed oil etc. are often very transparent and easily traceable (fair trade etc.) available from wholesalers in the respective country. I don't use palm oil.

    I try to avoid other raw materials or to reduce their consumption. Often I have to rely on my feelings. Transparency is important to me so that I and my customers can decide yes or no.
