Instead of using plain distilled water in a face or body cream, an herbal infusion incorporates an organic component that benefits your skin. Calendula, also known as Marigold, has antiviral, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing benefits. Echinacea and Rooibos are known to soothe allergies.  The dried petals and leaves of Calendula are steeped in boiling water to create a healing ‘tea’ for your body. The preparation of an herbal infusion for face and body creams is the same for any beneficial plant you choose to use.


1 cup boiling water
1 handful of dried calendula (or approximately 2-3 Tablespoons of dried flower or herb)


  1. Combine dried calendula with 1 cup boiling water
  2. Allow mixture to steep for ½ hour to an hour
  3. Strain the calendula leaves by pouring the herbal infusion through a strainer. Set aside the leaves (or throw out)
