100% organic Calendula Officinalis glycerite/vegetable glycerin extract. This is an herbal extract in food grade, certified organic, vegetable glycerin often called a glycerite. I grow this myself in raised beds of organic compost and worm castings. This is made from fresh, organic plants that I harvest myself. Handmade in small batches, available in 4 oz or 8 oz size. Larger quantities and wholesale are also available, please contact me directly for inquires.
100% organic although not formally certified. Vegan, gluten-free, non-irradiated, non-GMO, and never any additives. Glycerites have a shelf life of approximately one to two years if stored in a cool, dark place like a cabinet or fridge.
Common uses as a Humectant / Moisturizer ingredient in personal care and cosmetic products, which is easily absorbed into the skin and hair, making active ingredients (herb) in the product easier for the skin and hair to absorb including cold process soap, salve, lip balm, lotion, body scrub, body butter, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste and more.
For personal care & cosmetic product makers, use 10 to 15% glycerite of your oil/water/butter liquid volume in an existing recipe. Used topically straight or diluted for specific therapeutic or cosmetic purposes. An alternative to alcohol-based medicinal tinctures taken by mouth. For topical use, dab on the fingertip and rub it into desired areas. For oral use, always consult your health care practitioner, physician, and or veterinarian. Adult dosage is typically 30-60 drops (1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon), taken daily in a little water.
