Just a quick note about Calendula Oil from last post. Since the Weleda Calendula Oil is not cheap, I decided to make my own oil at home. Turns out it’s really easy, and actually I now prefer to use this oil, not only because it’s cheaper, but also because I can control what I put in it, for example I didn’t put any perfume or lanolin.
So here are the ingredients (you can buy them at a local health store or order them online on eBay etc.):
- Sesame Seed Oil. I bought a 1 litre bottle just because it’s relatively cheap ($8).
This is the main ingredient here, about 80% of the oil will be Sesame Oil.
This oil should have a strong smell of Tahini sauce.
- Calendula Oil. This oil is more expensive, so I only bought a 20ml bottle. I’m not sure if it’s organic or not.
- Chamomile Oil. Now this oil is really expensive. I’m sure Weleda don’t use more than a few drops of it in their original solution and so did I.
