Calendula is effective for treating dry or damaged skin. Furthermore, it accelerates healing of skin wounds, burns, eczema, and other inflammatory skin conditions, and regenerates skin due to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects.
Gernanium essential oil is one of the most efficient essential oils in healing skin conditions such as dermatitis and eczema. Geranium contains such active ingredients as linalool, citronellol and geraniol, which have anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antifungal and wound healing effects.
Aloe vera retains the skin’s moisture and has anti-inflammatory and anti-itching properties. Aloe vera heals wounds, which is partly due to the presence of mannose-6-phosphate. Aloe’s polysaccharides stimulate the immune system and accelerate the release of cytokines, which in turn stimulate the proliferation of fibroblasts involved in wound healing.
