how do you make calendula oil?
Does anyone know how to kake calendula oil? Being a beekeeper, I've been branching out a little and have atken workshops on candlemaking,soapmaking, and lotions and lip balms. In one class we used calendula oil. The woman teaching it said it's made by soaking petals in water but didn't give the details. Has anyone done it? I'm curious as to water temperature, ratio of water to flowers, how long to soak them, etc. Do you use whole fresh flower heads or just petals? Details would be nice. thanks for any help. Tony
