October's birth flower is Calendula, one of the most commonly used herbal flowers used in natural skin care and medicine. Calendula is a very useful ingredient. It's soothing properties make it a favorite for use in everything from bar soaps to salves, serums, and lotions. Here are some lovely photos from our Flickr Photo Pool that are making great use of Calendula.
If you have photos of your handmade bath, body, and skin care creations we would love to see them! Share them with us at The Natural Beauty Workshop's Flickr Photo Group.
