Calendula is one of my favourite ingredients so when Om Shanti Alchemy kindly sent me their Calendula Butter to try at the end of last year, I was incredibly excited to see if it lived up to my expectations.
I’ve tried several Om Shanti Alchemy products and each one never fails to impress with amazing results that go beyond just skincare benefits by helping to promote a sense of wellbeing too. Each item is infused with Reiki energy and is designed to calm and balance the mind and senses as well as help with particular skin concerns.
Calendula Butter is a blend of beautiful ingredients such as organic shea and cocoa butters, mango butter, organic avocado oil, Calendula flower extract and organic jojoba oil. The butter itself has one of the most butter-like consistencies i’ve experienced from a skincare product, with a deep yellow hue and soft texture that melts on the skin with ease, leaving behind a very subtle sheen with no greasy residue. A little butter goes a very long way making it exceptional value for money, and the smell is just as nature intended with a cocoa-rich aroma that makes it a pleasure to use.
Om Shanti Alchemy’s Calendula Butter is formulated with dry and irritated skin in mind, making this the perfect product to use at this time of year when our skin can feel out of sorts due to the seasonal change. The butter is instantly soothing on any irritated patches, stopping the itch almost immediately after use. Dry patches were certainly smoother and softer after application and in around 3 days, were gone for good. I found this particularly useful on some healing eczema patches as it smoothed the skin and kept the irritation at bay until it was completely eradicated. It has worked in harmony with my other products and has integrated well within my skincare routine.
I think it is safe to say that Calendula Butter is heading straight for my re-purchase list as it has been such a lovely product to use when my skin is in need of some TLC. It will also be fantastic for the Summer as it is great for stings, bites and burns, so will be a staple in my essentials during the warmer season.
