Calendula Oil

I harvested some calendula flowers from the allotment the same day I went to watch Embrace of the Serpent (Ciro Guerra) ... wow beautiful mesmerising dreaminess. It's not Yakruna but calendula oil is easy to make (well so i've heard, this is my first attempt!) It has super healing properties and I'm pretty excited about making it. I've read that the petals need to be very dry before pouring the oil over. 
 a good treatment for burns, skin rashes, inflammation, and wounds. Calendula oil also has antiseptic, anti fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.
(you may want to sieve the flowers into a fresh jar after the two weeks)
