Calendula Flowers... The Hidden Practices in the Industry

While Calendula Flowers are celebrated for their natural healing properties, the industry's approach to processing these delicate blooms can be less than natural.

Artificial Fragrances

To enhance the appeal, synthetic fragrances or 'parfum' are often added to Calendula-based products. These artificial scents can trigger allergies and respiratory issues, overshadowing the natural, gentle aroma of the flowers.

Color Enhancements.. Sacrificing Purity for Appearance

In a bid to make Calendula products visually striking, some brands resort to using artificial dyes. Chemicals like 'FD&C Yellow No. 5' are added to mimic the flower's natural hue, but such additives can lead to skin sensitivities and are best avoided in products meant for healing.

We avoid all harmful additives, ensuring that our Calendula products are as safe and natural as they are effective. Choose us, Green Fields Oils, where Calendula products truly honor the flower's natural healing power.
