Calendula balm (grown & made at Orca)

IMG_3055

Every class got to take home a calendula balm w/ flowers grown in the Orca garden. Calendula is a medicinal flower that does wonders on people’s skin. With just a few simple ingredients, it is easy to make and fairly economical to produce in large quantities. It’s definitely a crowd pleaser and a yearly tradition here in the garden. The ingredients are calendula flowers (soaked in olive oil for a month), beeswax, olive oil, and some classes had mint oil added. It’s great on chapped lips, cuts & scrapes, dry skin, sunburns, and more!
