Ingredients:

- 15 marigolds
- 150 g Organic extra virgin olive oil
- 20 g beeswax (It is important to use pure, unprocessed beeswax. Pure beeswax has a beautiful yellow colour. It is best to buy it from your local beekeeper)

  1. First of all, pick about 15 marigolds.
  2. Then remove the petals from the flowers and add them to the olive oil
  3. Heat the olive oil au bain-marie in a pan over low heat. Also take care not to overheat the olive oil with the petals. This reduces the good effects of the calendula.
