the story of calendula
Calendula is a very important part of my skincare line. It is incorporated in almost every one of my flora products that I craft. Each year I grow around 150 plants from seed, carefully tending to them every step of the growing process. Once the harvest starts to come in, I am in the garden every day picking them when their nourishing resins are at their peak. Once they are dried I start the process of extracting their nutrients. This can take up to three months depending on the product. This purposeful and methodical process produces the highest quality products for my customers while being more local and green because we do not have to ship them in. A fun fact, I was actually inspired to start my skincare line after growing this plant for the first time in 2015.
