MmmMm hhhhmmm Mmmm. Aphrodite passed me a pot of Essential Care's Organic Calendula Balm over lunch on Saturday, and with just one try of it, I was hooked. Originally intended for Lynnie, I nicked it. Sorry Lynnie!
Certified organic by the Soil Association, this product contains plant oils and calendula to help heal damaged skin. That makes it perfect for things like chapped lips, grazes, itchy, irritated patches and really dry cuticles. It's got a pleasant herby smell and it literally melts into an oil on contact with skin. Definitely a nice - and handy - product to have on hand, and it would also be brilliant for kids. A 50ml size normally sells for about €17, but you can bag one now for €11.99 from Irish website, Freedom in Health.
