How to make homemade and artisan marigold soap


Calendula extract is a natural active principle that we can take advantage of for multiple uses. In cosmetics they provide many benefits, such as the treatment of acne or cellulite. It is a powerful antioxidant, an ideal complement to your natural beauty routines. The properties of the oil are widely known.

However, one of the ways you can benefit is by making calendula soap. As you will see in this article, it is useful for the most sensitive skin because it is able to soothe irritations, redness and heal wounds easily. Its homemade preparation is very simple: once you have the ingredients, you just have to follow the procedure that we will tell you later to make this handmade soap.

Remembering the properties of calendula

  • For acne. This soap is very similar to sulfur in this regard. Regulates the secretion of sebum that appears during adolescence, but is suitable for very sensitive skin.
  • The oil has very moisturizing and nourishing qualities, as it is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids.
  • Contains minerals and vitamins. Like argan oil and neem oil, it has a very high concentration of tocopherol, a highly antioxidant vitamin that slows skin aging.
  • It is calming and anti-inflammatoryCalendula soap produces a sensation of relaxation in inflammations or irritations that arise as a result of an aggressive skin treatment, or allergies.
  • Healing. Many people use it to close small wounds that are difficult to heal. The only thing is that you have to be careful since calendula cannot enter the circulatory system. It is better to use this soap to clean them once they have healed, so that it gradually disappears.

Having known the properties of calendula, let’s learn some recipe for making natural calendula soap.

How to make natural and homemade calendula soap

First, write down the necessary ingredients.

  • Water, 140 ml.
  • Calendula oil, 10 ml.
  • Jojoba oil, 10 ml.
  • Several marigold petals.
  • Olive oil, 250 g.
  • Coconut oil, 50 ml.
  • Caustic soda, 45 ml.
  • The essence that you like the most. The logical thing is to use the same plant with which you are making the soap.

The first thing you should do is wait for the petals to dry. When you have it ready, we move on to the procedure to make the soap.

  1. First, add the caustic soda to the water. To protect your skin, wear gloves. You will probably want to open the windows for this step.
  2. Stir the previous mixture with a teaspoon.
  3. On the other hand, mix the coconut oil with the jojoba oil and the olive oil. With the first, what we achieve is that the saponification is greater and more foam is formed. You can actually make the combination of oil extracts that you like the most.
  4. Mix them all well with another spoon and add them to the first container.
  5. Use a mixer at medium intensity until everything is homogeneous. It usually takes about 9-10 minutes. You can use other appliances like a blender.
  6. When you are done, add the calendula oil and the essence of your choice. Take the mixer again. If your skin is very sensitive, almond oil will be a good option to add to this soap. It will make it smoother and take care of your epidermis. If your skin needs vitamins or is aging, add a small tocopherol capsule.
  7. After shaking this mixture, you will have it ready for the next steps in making calendula soap. Put it in the glass or silicone molds.
  8. Wait long enough for the soap to dry.

When it has dried, you will have already prepared natural calendula soap and you will be able to take advantage of all the hydration and nutrition properties for the skin and dermal conditions such as acne. The most sensitive skins will appreciate having one of these soap at home. It is one of the best to leave the skin soft and nourished. I recommend that you go through the article on to know the properties of aleppo soap.
