  • 4 oz water
  • 0.5 oz beeswax pastilles or grated beeswax bars
  • 4 oz calendula oil


  • To make calendula cream, start by boiling several cups of water in a large pot.
  • Using the water as a double boiler, melt 1 ounce of beeswax in a heatproof bowl, and 1 cup of calendula oil.
  • When the beeswax and oil are completely mixed, take off heat, and add in any essential oils.
  • Using a blender pre-warmed with hot water, blend the mixture until smooth. Allow it to cool. Voila your calendula cream is ready!


There are several essentials oils that are good partners to the anti-inflammatory properties of calendula. Peppermint, eucalyptus, chamomile, lavender, and spruce all work well in conjunction with calendula.
